A. Wow, I always. Think swim is gone forever. Hello there ;)

B. So far I love what im hearing. I dont see a wild change from the songs on Room on Fire but maybe I should listen again. I don't know, sounds like the Strokes to me.

I haven't totally absorbed this album yet, but I really, really love Macchu Picchu

I like this album. Machu Picchu, Taken For A Fool, and Under Cover of Darkness are my favorite tracks.

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.

I think that's why I really like this album more. It feels like they are actually trying as opposed to the whole lo-fi , garage feel.

I don't think the change from post-punk to new-wave is super far leap but it's refreshing for sure. They're not tackling a sound they can't handle like you hear on the new Young Widows.

I really like this album and I'm voting "good". It's not my favorite album this year but it's sweet chill music. My favorite tracks are Undercover of Darkness and You're so Right.

After they let you stream Under Cover of Darkness before the album came out, I was pretty electrified. I also enjoyed the music video. Except when it was released and I listened to the full album, I felt a little unsatisfied. Maybe I was just anticipating the feel like from First Impressions of Earth.

Good. The new wave approach lacks some conviction, but there are still some good songs here.

Honestly after Is This It and Room on Fire, we're all expecting too much

Definitely no Room On Fire or Is This It, but I like Angles quite a bit. At the very least, Machu Piccu and Gratisfaction are two of the best things that they've ever done. Also, the production isn't quite as awful on this one as it was on their first two albums, which is good.
