new Strokes: First Impressions of Earth

check out the following exclusive Strokes content @

Get First Impressions of Earth now, it rocks, and could quite possibly be their best record.

Finally, the Strokes pretty much nailed the production, and the songs are solid.

It's sweet to hear that those old school motown basslines and more complex drumming are finally back, Julian Casablancas' lyrics have improved exponentially (he also sounds clearer and more dynamic), and the two-part guitar interplay sounds fresh and exciting (recognizing of course that it's all derivative).

The bands I hear most when listening to this record: the Velvet Underground, Radiohead, the Doors, Pink Floyd, the Pixies, the Cars, the Stooges

Check out what both Family Guy and David Cross have used in their humor, and one of the most loved and hated bands to surface in a very long time.

hey c,

what are your favorite songs off the new record so far?

i'm a fan of the leadoff track, not sure why, but "You Only Live Once" i find really kickin'.

I am so hip because I dig indie rock.

Everybody look at me as I give everything 5 stars. Unless someone who I think I am smarter than likes it, then it gets no stars.
