Default First Impressions Of First Impressions Of Earth

And the MB award for most obvious thread title pun goes to....


Well youve prolly all got yer new Strokes kicks by now, so what's the feeling on it? Is Jules any fun when he's not mumbling stuff about Kim Deals Porno Pot but borderline-emo-metally stuff instead? You Only Live Once better than Someday? Electricityscape the new Reptilia?

Or were they just shiiiiite all along?

Get yer mitts out ladies and gents, last call of the year

I think I'll just keep pretending they only ever released on album. First Impressions of Earth sucks.

never been a huge strokes fan, thought their first album was promising and rhe second bar reptilia was crap in my opinion. But... first impressions of earth is absolutely good, more streamlined, diverse and assured then their two previous releases. such songs as heart in a cage, you only live once and on the other side EASILY eclipse anything else they've done prior.
overall- 8/10

I saw them TV a couple of weeks ago.

I swear their lead singer is the most punchable guy in rock since that tosser from weezer.

On the Other Side---amazing. Maybe not an incredibly talented band, but great for warming up parties. Drink Some More!

I've heard like half of their songs on this album properly, so I can't judge yet. But it looks promising. Not the best I've heard, but okay.

Has its moments with some good tracks, but leaves me with the feeling that I've heard it all before.

You know im of the opinion that they have about five good songs, but rack up a 6th with "heart in a cage" because I can't get enough of that song.
