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.

awesome

This is a great album by one of the greatest bands of all time. Buy it now and don't be dissapointed later!

Acceptable

Based on 'Under Cover of Darkness', I expected much better out of this album. That being said, that is only a first impression; it could very easily grow on me. I still think it is very good, and it's refreshing to hear the Strokes have so many songs with slightly different styles and sounds. Machu Piccu has very exciting riffs, and Gratisfaction is a very catchy tune. So no, it's not Is This It good, but still a good Strokes album, especially if you're a fan.

A new twist on an old favorite.

The Strokes are evolving. I like it.

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,...
