Anyone Like The Strokes?

I heard one of their songs on the radio today, thought it sounded good.

Anyone else like them?

I've got "Is This It" and dig it a lot, especially since all that ridiculous uber-hype around The Strokes died down and I could just enjoy the album for what it is. It's punchy, catchy, fast and fun,

As a band though I find them somewhat bland and devoid of personality; they look incredibly cool and all but I just get a feeling that there's nothing really there beyond the cool surface, Which is maybe why they never really hooked me in a big way.

I have their first two albums, but I haven't picked up their latest one yet. I will get it eventually.

I have the first two albums as well. Is This It is really, really good. Room on Fire is good, but not as good.

I haven't heard anything off their third album.

Hells yes! One of my favorite bands ever.

Is This It? Someday, Modern Age, Barely Legal, Last Nite, Hard to Explain, New York City Cops
Room on Fire... What Ever Happened? Reptilia, Automatic Stop (favorite), 12 51 (2nd favorite), The End Has No End, Under Control, Between Love & Hate
FIOE... Razorblade, You Only Live Once, Juice Box, On the Other Side, Ask Me Anything, Electricityscape

Every single song mentioned is kick ass. IMO few bands match their poptastic hooks. I would be happy to share w/e i got if you want to get more into them.

The Strokes rock and are probably one of the most underrated bands out there, they are definitely victims of media backlash after being labeled saviours of rock and roll by the media. The new album is great, nothing revolutionary but great. I think Electricityscape and You Only Live Once are two of their greatest songs ever. Great band and totally kickass live

Eh...I liked Is This It. It had some good songs, but was a bit dull. I never heard anything from Room On Fire that I remember...and their single Juicebox from their newest album makes me want to punch a squirrel. So, yeah...can't say I'm a fan.

Their first 2 albums are 2 of my favorite records of all time. The third one didn't impress me as much (though it got good reviews). I guess the first 2 albums set a pretty high bar.

One of my favorite bands of all time, hands down. In concert, they take my breath away.

I interviewed Albert the guitarist last month and he was a total sweetheart.

I love the Strokes, and the fact that David Cross is somehow involved with them make them even better.

First Impressions of Earth is by far their best album, I only hope they get better.

Juicebox
Ask Me Anything
Fear of Sleep
On the Other Side
Razorblade

I saw them back in September and they rocked. I'd actually forgotten about them for awhile, but they were playing at a college about an hour from me.

Near the end of the show they did a cover of Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side" that was just
