Adoro esse álbum, fiquei feliz quando o encontrei aqui com um ótimo preço (<120), e efetuei a compra. Ao recebê-lo, já reparei que o envelope interno estava rasgado na lateral, onde o vinil encosta. Limpei e coloquei para escutar... já no fim da primeira faixa, pulou, e assim foi, pulando em várias faixas, na última do lado B chegava até a entrar em loop. Achei que tinha dado azar, devolvi e comprei outro. Não teve jeito, o segundo veio pior, dava até pra ver uns amassados minúsculos no vinil... prensagem ruim, devolvido também. Agora o valor subiu, não sei se chegou um novo lote, mas eu não vou arriscar novamente =/ Meu toca-discos é intermediário, está novo e já comprei muitos vinis aqui na Amazon, todos tocam lindamente. É isso, espero que meu relato te ajude a decidir essa compra.
This release is totally different to their other releases. It is funky with alt rock. I really do enjoy their music and there is a "but". A band could be forgiven for a first release being on the short side, I.e less than 35 minutes in total. I have looked at other releases from them and they barely scrape in at that time length. To me that signals that they are a band that have run out of ideas. It has been said that they were the saviours of alt rock. If their releases are an extended EP release, they are definitely not the saviours of the alt rock scene. There is only one plus point for this release as it comes in at just under 40 minutes.
As a hardcore Strokes fan my opinion may be slightly biased, which I have considered before writing this review in order to make it worth reading. Despite this I cannot fault this album, and that is my honest opinion fan or no fan.
This album has variety which cannot be seen on any other Strokes album, whilst at the same time keeping within an alternative 80's theme, each song flowing effortlessly on to the next. It is a joy to listen to; my current favourite songs being 'Tap Out', 'Welcome to Japan' and 'Happy Endings' however this changes on a daily basis because every song has different qualities about it, being such a diverse album.
New techniques and styles are used, which is parallel to their last LP 'Angles' however, this time it feels professional and works well like it is meant to be that way, rather than almost experimental like with Angles.
Overall it sounds like a band that has evolved and improved, making songs that are so different yet are so undoubtably Strokes, because of the powerful hooks and addictiveness that you can only hear from this band. It is hard for them to ever out-do 'It This It' which is the curse of a perfect debut LP, so critics are always lukewarm with any other album they put out. But I can say with certainty that this is yet another intriguing, fresh and perfect album which will remain in my collection for many years to come.
The Strokes' final album for RCA is a mix of old school 80's electric pop and the usual Strokes cool riffs and as always they have moved forward into new areas. I really like this album. No, it's not 'Is This It' but if they just put out another album like that 12 years after it was first released, people would be quick to say they were predictable. 'All The Time' is the closest song to the classic Strokes sound.
I love all 5 albums and am a hugh Strokes fan, and really recommend this album.
Some are saying this is the Strokes final album, but who knows, only time will tell...
This is a great album which I thoroughly enjoy listening to but as its the Strokes you would still expect better. It's their weakest album in which they have expanded on the sound they dallied with on Angles. The songs are typically catchy, although one of them sounds scarily like Take On Me by A-ha, but none of them leave any lasting impression. Not really sure where they go from here but I'm sure it will be fun finding out.
typical strokes album usual 40 mins off tunes ripping straight into it kicking off with the superb Tap out, Welcome to japan, Partners in Crime and Happy ending being the heavy hitting songs for me on this album the rest are certainly not to be ignored, overall i think this is better than angles but may be not quite on a par with Is this it, hey its still early days tho it may well turn out to be
