….not very good? But that’s a subjective opinion coming from me (full disclosure: there’s a denim jacket in my closet with a Strokes patch on it). I appreciate a good evolution in a band’s life, and I even admit that at first listen I usually hate new albums but grow to love them (Modest Mouse and Radiohead come to mind…). I jsut can’t figure out if I’m longing for an Is This It Part 2 or if this just really blows donkey balls (that’s a professional musical term).
Take a listen to the single and post your thoughts in the comments!
