the money thing doesn't bother me. but I also don't think that Is This It? has a decidedly unique sound. In fact it sounds rather borrowed. I like it nonetheless. Then again, I don't think you actually responded to my post with anything but sarcastic contempt, not recognizing the lightness with which I wrote it. Some things get lost in translation though, right?:tramp:

Ahhh i always sound sarcastic. I won't get if you write something as being 'light' though, i'll just argue with it like anything else.
But yeah, i agree with you on the borrowed thing, like i said in response to dac just now.

oh I am not offended or anything, but I DO love talking music. I should have got on a music forum years ago.

Its a brilliant decision to make definitely! About half, probably more, of the music i've listened to over the years is due to them. You'll find so much new stuff its insane.

I dig the Strokes... "You only live once" is one of my favorites. I'm a bit resentful though since Julian attended Five Towns College the same year I did... dropped out and became famous, that bastard ;)

I actually really enjoy his whole attitude with making music for the music and I think they are a rare breed in todays Rock circuit. I'm sure the best for them is yet to come... they are evolving nicely.

for anybody interested in learning more about the band there is a pretty cool video called "In Transit" on YouTube. Basically following the band around on their first tour.

I just discovered the song "Electricityscape" about a few days ago and it's really blown me away. I kinda wish they did more prog stuff like that, it was really good.

Dont forget about the strokes...
I think alot of ppl over look them.. So many good songs.

Let me know what you think.:clap:

Their first album was really good. After that, a steady decline in quality from what I can tell.

Yukon Cornelius 01-06-2009 11:51 AM

Its just the drugs... they will come back

Nice applause? I pretty much agree with Jaz, first album is excellent, second album is inconsistent, third album is poor on the whole
