    The only The Strokes album anybody really needs. The original “smell the glove” cover with the nudity is much better than the alternate cover.

      The story of the New York band The Strokes is best compare with the breakthrough of Oasis. The band around Liam and Noel Gallagher was about ten years ago a real sensation, while everyone could hear their music is anything but original was. Apparently there was at that time in England need yet another Beatles revival and Oasis was the right band in the right place. The music of The Strokes is also not original. You think at first to a poor absorption of Iggy Pop or The Velvet Underground. But then it turns out that the cd just out of 2001 comes to five very young customers and that you're listening to. Main group member is singer/songwriter Julian Casablancas. He has managed to eleven very catchy to write songs with refreintjes you can whistle after one listen. Despite the radio-unfriendly, dirty guitar sound brought out the first single "The Modern Age makes it easy to reach the top ten of the charts in England. But yes, there is one not averse to a good hype. In Netherlands we are usually what more down-to-Earth, but nothing I would be surprised if 2001 will go down in the history books as the year in which The Strokes by vomiting. Listen to the classics-in-to-be Barely Legal and Someday and you have to admit that The Strokes in 2001 the right band in the right place. Not original so, but very good.

        An awesome drum'n bass backline, good guitar ostinatos and an expressive voice for an easy listening rythmic album.
