The Strokes - Angles

Release Date: 3/22/11
Genre: Rock

Review: When The Stokes last released an album in 2006, it was the same year where I started keeping track of current music.  So up until mid 2009, all i heard about The Strokes were that they were suppose to be the saviors of rock, but ended up being a joke.  Then when it was time for 00's decade list, it literally felt that the support for Is This It came from nowhere.

The band said that Angles was going to be a lot like their debut and for the songs that do, I really enjoyed.  Then they have songs that really wander off, but because of Julian Casablancas's distinct vocals, it holds the sound together.  I just don't find them to be repeatable.  The flow of the first five songs are so well done, it's just the ending felt half assed and messy.

Favorite Songs: Under Cover of Darkness, Taken For a Fool, Call Me Back
Rating: 6.7/10
