I liked it. I really can't understand why so many people found it disappointing the week it was released.

I liked the album but sadly not as much as i used to love all of the other Strokes albums even Julian Casablancas' solo album "Phrases for the Young" was more enjoyable than this, but "Angles" isn't a bad album by any means, it's just not as good as the reputation the Strokes have built up for themselves

I think this album is great. It's got a bit of everything, but the only thing i miss is the rawness of songs like Someday and New York City Cops. Still great though and I love Gratisfaction, sounds like a more guitary Queen.

Need to hear this, but I've been disappointed in all of my attempts to dig The Strokes. It just seemed like watered down garage-revival with a lot of production.

You'll be once again disappointed. The Strokes are the Strokes, take it or leave it.

Yeah, but most indie rock is more or less at least worth a try. The Strokes were okay, just didn't live up to how much hype has surrounded them IMO.
