It's got a fantastic 3 track opening, and You Only Live Once is going to be stuck in my head for a while now.

I`ve gone 3 whole months without having heard a single song off it

I was stupid enough to buy it before I heard a single track.

Not all bad though.

Well I don't suggest buying the album because it's not brilliant, but I would tell you to download the first three songs-

You Only Live Once
Heart In A Cage
Juicebox

Great songs.

Lasting Impressions Of...

'Heart In A Cage' is one of the better album tracks, but it don't half remind me of Iggy's 'The Passenger' in parts.
The intro to 'You only live Once' starts in a similar way to 'Under Pressure' then turns into 'China Girl'.
The bassline to 'Juicebox' I've heard somewhere before, just can't put my finger on it yet.
The chorus to 'Razorblade' reminds me of Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights'
eg; "It's me I'm Kathy, I've come home" etc (too close for comfort.)

The lead singer (can't even bear to mention him by name) sings throughout 'Ask Me Anything' like he's bored with his own voice.
"Iv'e got nothing to say, Iv'e got nothing to say" drone, drone.

I have...shut the fuck up!

This band is seriously overated

First Impressions sucks. Their two first albums were masterpieces, and their newest one has a couple of great songs. And then there's First Impressions of the Earth.

I will admit that I am a Strokes fan boy, but First Impressions is not a bad album by any means. I would say that it's their 3rd best album, behind Is This It and Room On Fire, ahead of Angles. You Only Live Once is The Strokes' best song to date. Juicebox is a bad ass track with a killer bass line. Ize of the World has Julian's best lyrics. This album got a lot of criticism for being too long, and I would agree with that, but the only song I would've cut would have been Killing Lies. It is much different from their first 2 albums, but give it a chance and it will really grow on you.

I quite like Razorblade to be fair, other than that it's pretty gash.
