If you've heard when the album's coming out or what songs are gonna be on it post because I'm a huge fan...By the way, Julian got married.

The Strokes
 
Is anyone looking forward to the new strokes album..
The new song juicebox is amazing and i cant wait for the best band in the world to come back and reclaim their crown

Expletive Deleted 10-17-2005 03:47 PM

I hate just about everything about Juicebox, but I do like You Only Live Once.

I'm not really counting the days, but I'll probably download the inevitable leak.

Me neither , but I guess you`ll have to put up with the Strokes until then

TheBig3 10-18-2005 09:36 PM

Yeah, the strokes are trash, and their best song was never released here because of 9/11.

Uke 11-05-2005 12:24 PM

Expletive Deleted 11-05-2005 01:42 PM

The other three songs that have leaked are pretty bad, too.

Thefiresoutinthehospital 11-09-2005 02:31 AM

is this band really important anymore?
i heard juicebox and its rediculous.
it sounds like someone jammed the bassline from the Batman theme tune into a second rate AC/DC track and overdubbed some underpar vocals over
under over.
ha.

I just listened to "When it started" and no its not "new York City Cops" so I'll stand firm and say "The best song they ever did was not put on a US album because of 9/11"

Go listen to New York City Cops.

Go listen to New York City Cops.

I've downloaded the song several times, and every time it's "When It Started" with a different name. I've even gotten it off websites that say it's the one of the UK release, and it's still "When It Started." If you'd like to try and prove me wrong, feel free to upload the track to Yousendit, because I'm getting nowhere trying to find it myself.

cherrychic 11-27-2005 08:47 PM

i like the strokes i think my fav song by them is reptilia. though all thier song s sound the same.

TheBig3 11-27-2005 08:49 PM

Ok well I just went to iTunes and checked the song and its not right, and then they have a single of "New York City Cops" from ice land and its the song im talking about.

DL iTunes (its free) and check yourself.

Try to get NYCC's man, im telling ya, I think the strokes have 3 good songs, but this is definitly far and away their best.

cherrychic 11-27-2005 08:58 PM

TheBig3 11-27-2005 09:02 PM

It's a live take of "When It Started." It's the same song.

Mr Sensitive 11-29-2005 03:40 PM

I like the Strokes, I'm looking foward to their new album but I have not listened to their new single yet.

Sevennation09 11-29-2005 08:49 PM

I can't wait for it myself, juicebox is an awsome song other then the very start. I really want to hear a good album this yr hopefully. Get Behind Me Satan (White Stripes) was a bit of a disappointment and i just got a Beck CD and it only had a few godd songs.

Imonlydancing 01-03-2006 10:34 AM

New Strokes Song.
 
Juicebox.
Anyone like it?
I Do.
Yep.

Yanqui_UXO 01-03-2006 10:39 AM

Awful

Urban Hat€monger ? 01-03-2006 11:26 AM

I`ve not heard it yet

I hope I can say that this time next year

Expletive Deleted 01-03-2006 12:19 PM

Awful new song, awful new album.

sleepy jack 01-03-2006 12:20 PM

I second/third/whateva on it being awful.

ArtistInTheAmbulance 01-03-2006 12:23 PM

I like it. I didnt at first, but it grew on me. Ive been trying to get hold of the new album fer a while now, but my downloading stuff has gone spazz so itll have to wait.

<Sigh> Means Ill also have to put up with people continuously saying "BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT!!" when I blatantly cant.

shiftael 01-03-2006 01:30 PM

whole album is pretty decent, definitely slightly different then the otehr 2, which is probably why some don't care for it...

bigmouthstrikesagain 01-11-2006 04:55 AM

The new Strokes album????
 
I recently acquired the new Strokes album and would like to get other people's opinions on it.

When The Strokes first reared their ugly heads on the music scene, there was a certain degree of excitment about them. They were new, fresh and to be honest one of the first bands to reserect the Garage Rock scene.

Since their excellent debut album, they, in my opinion, have gone down hill big time. The second album was very poor and lacklustre, and now the 3rd, and some might say crucial album, is even worse.

i'm afraid i feel The Strokes are a 'one trick pony' band, and without the songs to back this up, they will dissapear into the musical wilderness.

agree or disagree???? :band:

swim 09-03-2006 01:32 PM

I love Is this It. Room on Fire and First Impressions on Earth ok but I hardly ever listen to them.

jonmarshall 09-04-2006 04:59 PM

its a good album, lot different to the older stuff, heavier and better sounding

Raine 09-04-2006 09:49 PM

The Strokes are sub par band. The vocalist's voice annoys the hell out of me for some reason.
But I like the sorta retro image they're trying to revive. It's kinda cool.

Anyways my favorite songs by them are The Modern Age, New York City Cops and Reptilia . Everything else I listen to in relatively small doses and then it becomes a little bit tolerable.

anti_poptart_chik 09-11-2006 04:29 PM

I have to say the strokes are one of my favourite bands, seen them live wen they toured australia, n it was an above average performance. My favourite songs would hav to be "New York City Cops" and "Last Night" . Just a note for you American fans though, they did release a version of New York City Cops in america on vinyl, there was only a few copies though cause yeh my friend has one he got of ebay.
