They are really great, one of my favorite bands at present. I saw them live last year and their concert is amazing, lots of energy. I agree that the media hype backlashed on them, but I guess they are much more solid now and will produce amazing records in the future.

Is this it is a great album from beginning to end. In the Rolling Stone Magazine Bono says that Boy is one the the top-10 debut albums ever. As much as I love U2, I think Is this it is comparable in terms of greatness for a debut. Barely Legal and NYC Cops are Not to mention Last Night, Someday, Soma...

Room on Fire sounds a bit too much like Is this it, but it is still very good. Give a try to Under Control and The End Has No End.

And First Impresisons of Earth took them to another level imo. Some truly great songs in there, like Electicityscape, Ize of the World and Heart in a Cage. And Juicebox is a blast!

I have Last Nite and Reptilia on my itunes. Haven't really checked any of their albums out. But I WAS tempted to get Is This It when I purchased Turn On The Bright Lights!

Only really ever heard the singles that The Strokes have released.

Last Nite is one of the worst songs I have ever heard fullstop. I never wanna hear that sad excuse for a song again. It's just ugly and hearing it makes me wanna vomit.

12.51 and The End has no End are brilliant though....

It's weird to think that "Is This It?" came out in 2001 and in 2002 they were all over every rock magazine cover and there was so much hype surrounding them.

I guess the hype has died down a lot because I rarely hear a Strokes song on the radio or see videos by them anymore.

I love The Strokes!!! It's very recent, probably a phase But anyway, my favourite song is Heart In A Cage. That guitar is just amazing and I can say that I like the depressing lyrics of the song.
