Never got into them at the time - I was 14 so probably prime audience. I loved The Strokes but I couldn't get the hype surrounding Pete and Carl. The minimal output vs endless column inches for a so-called lyrical genius pretty much ruined any hope for me. Listening to this 16 years later (and a few times in between)... yeah, still not for me.

Disco discreto, ma senza l'irruenza dei primi Strokes, senza il background blues dei White Stripes e senza quell'eleganza pop dei primi Franz Ferdinand, tanto per fare nomi coevi dei Libertines che hanno avuto almeno lo stesso successo.

"Horror Show" and "Up the Bracket" are great songs, but most of this album is pretty forgettable. Kind of overrated in retrospect.

When this album came out, I really loved it. Now after listening to it for the first time since years, I totally understand why I loved it so much. Not only one of the best debuts in the 2000s, but also one of the best albums in the 2000s.

Fantastic album! One of the greatest of the 2000's. Barat and Doherty's guitar playing complement so well, giving as a result catchy, powerfull and memorable songs. The libertines are one of the best british bands to come in the past 20 years!

Sloppy, boozy, edgy rock and roll. A great album for wanton nights out.
