Maccu Pichu and Gratisfaction are the two songs I'm feeling good about.

Sometimes it's good to have a lot of negative comments before hand, as you go in with low expectations, and end up quite happy if you find a good number of the songs enjoyable.

Overall, I think it's better than the last album, but probably doesn't have anything as good as the best tracks on the last album. Not nearly as bad as I was expecting, I actually liked the vast majority of it.

It feels more like a Phoenix album than a Strokes album to me. I really like Machu Picchu, Under Cover of Darkness, Games, Gratisfaction, and Life is Simple in the Moonlight. Don't care for You're So Right, Call Me Back or Metabolism. Two Kinds of Happiness and Taken For a Fool are okay. Would have been a great EP.

It seems like I'm the only one who likes You're So Right. I'm already becoming tired of Under Cover Of Darkness.

Just listened to it the first time last night...loved it. "Taken For A Fool" is probably my favorite song so far, will "Games" and "Two Kinds Of Happiness" up there as well. I'm still kind of lukewarm on "Metabolism", but a great album overall.

Sorry to double-post, but looks like the band is going to start working on LP5 in April. Yes, of this year:
The Strokes to start work on 'Angles' follow-up album in April | News | NME.COM
Nice to see that some bands, unlike some other bands, are able to write, record, and release material without having to resort to BS excuses about hitting "rich veins of songwriting" and being "lost in the music".

 
Yes, I am bitter.
