Liking the sound, slight progression from their previous 2 albums but lacking in catchy songs in comparison. Still pretty cool I guess.

Though I have Is This It? ranked higher, personally I enjoy this album more. I put Is This It? up there due to its influence, but objectively these songs give me more joy. From the spectacular YOLO, to Red Light, you have A LOT of good indie rock. This album is a complete outlier in their discography, more abrasive and in-your-face than their other records, which gives it its own special charm. Its full of underrated gems; Razorblade, On the Other Side, Electricytscape, and Red Light are all absolutely fantastic songs. If you are a strokes fan, this album is essential.

I honestly really enjoy this album and don't know why people dislike it so much. I guess everyone had high expectations for The Strokes following their debut and even Room on Fire, but I enjoy the more aggressive style on some of these tracks. All I can say is that it feels a bit scattered, so I enjoy the tracks individually more than I do listening to this as a whole.

On the other side and YOLO are great tracks, but aside from that everything is, at much, OK. This is just a terrible album.

The second half is definitely strikingly weak compared to the first but it is still excellent. I love Razorblade so much

First Impressions?
Well the band heard the chatter, time to mix it up

This is awfully long which is initially jarring considering what came before

This band is just too good to say it is bad. But there are duds here which is new

Expectations begin to lower about what The Strokes ceiling can be in regards to their place in music. They come back to earth and fans realize that they aren't quite as revolutionary as we may think.

There are a few gems here but there are also some drab affairs, not an easy listen, it's directionless and messy, but still overall quite good.

From Space-Dementia 09/23/2015 01:59
There's some good songs on here, but overall it feels kinda uninspired. Not as good as their previous two attempts.
Best tracks: You Only Live Once, Ecelctricityscape, Ask Me Anything
Worst track: I can't really choose one. Most songs other than those three aren't memorable at all.
