I can't stand the Strokes to be honest, though I did have a soft spot for The End Has No End.

Heart In A Cage is very average, but I gotta say Last Nite is arguably the most cringeworthily overhyped song the decade for me, along with Jet's Are You Gonna Be My Girl and White Stripes' Seven National Army, but that's just me. All are ghastly.

Az Yet's Last Night was even better than that particular Strokes offering. I have only heard Strokes singles though.

^COADF and ATYCLB would've been on there if I'd done more than one per artist. I think AL is her best album after ROL. It's very underrated!

It's too repetitive for me, and there are only 3 or 4 songs on it that I would consider great.
