Another major difference:

The Strokes have 10 eyebrows among them, while Oasis has 3.

so, they're great sigles makers, well, is the way I see The Strokes, their singles are really catchy

and, you poor boy, hope die last, uh? nah, maybe someday they will surprise me again... maybe

LOL @ LemonMelon

Minus charisma and quotability. And a clutch of good albums. Though as far as overhyped debuts go, I think Is This It is vastly superior to Definitely Maybe.

I don't understand the comparison to Oasis at all. And I like both bands.

I could be wrong, but I think it was just his way of saying that he dislikes The Strokes as much as Oasis.

Or something.

I don't understand it either. And I think both are overrated.

He was joking around, to some extent at least.

I listened to First Impressions of Earth this afternoon to spite you all. I choose to live my life as a rebel.

Anyway, really looking forward to this album as I really enjoy each of the previous albums by The Strokes. Love those guitars and vocals.
