I listened to it maybe 12 times, and so I do like it. However it gets less and less interesting all the time, which I kind of felt it would. Taken For A Fool, Machu Picchu, Under Cover of Darkness and Life is Simple in The Moonlight are all very good tracks, in my opinion. There's a little too much filler though.

I miss the way The Strokes were. Garage, lo-fi, and with a bit of retro swagger. Now they seem to be moving towards more 80's synthpop/new wave and thats fine, I actually feel they could be pretty good at it. I mean, Julian Casablancas' solo album was similar and I really liked that. However I think this album is good, but just misses the mark.
