iTunes Review

Reuniting after a layoff nearly as long as their existence, the Strokes came back in 2011 with Angles, an album that sounds as if the band had never taken time to explore solo albums and outside production duties. The staccato new wave of “Under Cover of Darkness” is everything one expects from the group. Its nervous jangle and gallop creates a tension unlike no other. “Two Kinds of Happiness” softens the anxiety with a smoother dreamlike frosting, but “You’re So Right” adds FM radio guitars to an avant-prog rock set-piece where spoken word and radically shifting textures stretch out the song’s two and a half minutes. “Taken for a Fool,” “Gratisfaction” and “Machu Picchu” highlight the band’s truest dynamics between guitarist Nick Valensi and drummer Fabrizio Moretti. Singer Julian Casablancas may have the band-leader job down cold, with his sneers and Richard Hell-like rambles, but the band is nothing without the spastic guitar solos and the precise beats.

It's Different

Just finished listening to the album, at first i didnt like it, but it grows on you. They havnt really recaptured the sound our brilliance of "is this it" but it is a change. Most of the songs have a techno feel to them which is quite cool. If you are a strokes fan buy this album, you wont be dissapointed, you may feel let down at first but keep listening to it and you will eventually enjoy it. The key tracks include "Taken for a Fool" , "Machu Piccu" and "Life is simple in the Moonlight"

Angles..yeah good!!

The most anticipated release(for me anyway) of 2011is finally here. I wasn't expecting another 'Is This It' and doubt if we'll ever see the likes of it again. Angles is a fun album that kinda grows and grows with each rotation. Slightly experimental perhaps but you can't knock The Strokes for that. Personally i'd have liked a bit more of the kickarse guitar sounds that we've come to know and love and maybe for Jules to have extended his voice a bit more. None of these tracks hit me in the way that say Reptilia,Last Nite or Heart In A Cage did back then. Standouts for me are Gratisfaction, Taken For A Fool, Machu Piccu and Life Is Simple In The Moonlight. I hope this doesn't sound too critical because i really like it and recommend to buy it. The Strokes are one of my top 3 all- time fave bands and this album doesn't change that..enjoy!

Angles

Angles shows that The Strokes are still very much a factor in 2011, and rightly so. Disjointed, hyperactive, experimental, whatever. Angles is the album to beat this year.

Biography

Formed: 1998 in New York, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Equally inspired by classic tunesmiths like Buddy Holly and John Lennon and the street-smart attitude and angular riffs of fellow New Yorkers Television and the Velvet Underground, the Strokes were also equally blessed and cursed with an enormous amount of hype -- particularly from the U.K. music press, whose adulation for the group rivaled their fervor for Oasis in the early '90s. Barely in their twenties by the time their debut album, Is This It, arrived in 2001, singer/songwriter Julian Casablancas,...
