Customer Reviews

This, indeed, is it

The defining factor of a truly great record is one that can make you feel, one that speaks to you, one that heroically plucks you from cold, heartless reality and puts you in heaven every three minutes; 'To me my life don't make sense' singer Jules sings in 'Barely Legal'; 'In spaceships they won't understand' he sobs in the fantastic 'Last Night'.

Barely in their twenties by the time their debut album, Is This It, arrived in 2001, singer/songwriter Julian Casablancas,...
