After a hiatus, it seems like the Strokes are back to being a productive band, with their second album in as many years. This album has a more cohesive sound from start to finish and resembles more of a “classic Strokes” album, but the lyrics are still not classic. Time will tell how long we have to wait for another album by our favorite New York group from the “aughts”, but in the meantime, enjoy this inoffensive album.
Favorite Track: Tap Out
Second Favorite: Welcome to Japan
