The Strokes come out of the gate strong with 2001's "Is This It". Often regarded as one of the best albums of the 2000's, the album marked the resurgence of garage rock with catchy guitar hooks in songs like "Last Nite", "Someday" and "Hard to Explain".

A must listen for any fan of modern rock.

Great album. Every song is amazing and just comes and goes, no messing around. One of my favourites.

Its ok I guess. Solid modern rock album, but isn't really as substantial as I expected. A little repetitive

What an incredible album! Every song top to bottom is great. One of the most consistent albums I've heard.

A nice and simple rock album.
Haven't heard it since but they are a pretty solid band.

La più grande scoperta che si possa fare nella musica rock è quella dell'acqua calda. Fare cioè sempre le stesse cose perché il rock è quella roba lì ma farle in maniera sempre un poco differente. Ci sono state negli anni tante eccezioni ma la regola è questa e funziona da sessantanni. Agli inizi degli anni duemila l'acqua calda la scoprirono, oltre i White Stripes, anche i più convenzionali, più ruffiani ma anche più convincenti ( almeno all'inizio ) Strokes. Che già col secondo disco dimostrarono che non era il caso di perderci altro tempo, ma che qui erano assai cool. Ritmi, melodie, strumentazione classica chitarre-basso-batteria, uno che urla nel microfono, delle facce da schiaffi: aria fresca, in un ambiente che tende sempre di più a vendere aria fritta.

After listening to this one a few times, I'm pretty sure it's not the 24th greatest album of all time. It gets points for sparking Indie Revival and Post Punk Revival, but musically, it's a bit repetitive and just average.

Best Tracks: Is This It, Last Nite, Take It Or Leave It
