maybe we found the ultimate hipster-detector
totally ? a lot ? Half of 200% ?
And maybe people will hate it because they really don’t like it and have been following the band since the first album. I’m not hating it for now, I’m just disappointed that they still are in this state of mind where they just throw stuff in a tracklist like an album is just a bunch of tracks put together with no coherence (style-wise or production-wise for the most part). People here seem to like it very much, but I haven’t read much about the songs they like. I’d be interested …
well I should’ve said 10 cause there’s the really “vintage strokes” All the time
I think it’s the first goofy record of The Strokes. I laughed during half of it. Sounds like 11 attempts to escape from the sound that made them successful.
I can’t seem to take Beyoncé seriously when she tries to pull off this “Bow down bitches” line. She sounds like she’s trying too hard. Come on girl, there’s enough Angel Haze and Azealia Banks in this world, get back to what you do best.
this medley is probably the best 10 min of television I will ever see in 2013. His backing band is also incredibly good at re-orchestrating songs.
this is surely gonna be the 8 longest hours of his life. The idea comes from good will but when great bands battle to get the money to pay studio time, you can’t help but see this auction as a sad joke. Just sell one of your guitars or somthin’
This album makes me feel old. Could have been released 20 years from now
Thanks tom, but thom’s life is better
The guy keeps hangin out with legends, so that’s kind of logical he became a rock conservative. Wait for his music encyclopedia (sure he’ll write one someday, the guy’s ego is bigger than his drum set). Anyway the track is good, and he still writes some good stuff with FF. It’s just that he’s addicted to spotlights.
Damn how he sounds off-key, and like he’s restraining himself from singing the same melody he sings on the album. Maybe he was sick I don’t know, but it’s clearly lame, mostly coz of the whistling. Which he couldn’t do properly either.
not sure an amazon 30 sec snippet is worth posting as a news. I understand there’s a lot of expectation but please, we all know the sound quality of amazon previews is crappier than any radio rip or demo recording …
“Soon”. Give a release date or stfu dammit !
Thx for reminding me this legendary Michael Scott moment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuGIgf-ICHM
it’s really nice.
The guy never takes himself seriously, I interviewed him about a month ago, such a cool dude, but he really doesn’t care about anythin except music and get drunk. Maybe it’s a blessing.
not so exciting. Guess nothing will top cripple crow … (but I hope I’m wrong)
I think the main thing I’ve learned here, is that Girls fan are bitchin’ about everything so quickly (it’s too short, there’s a sax solo, Chet White isn’t there (no kidding),it’s repetitive …) . It sure seems like you wouldn’t let the guy put a solo album if it didn’t sound like his former band. Which is kinda funny coz most of the times fans want it the other way around.
Well if you don’t know what’s goin on on “Riviera Rock” take a listen to Gainsbourg “Aux armes et caetera” (I finally get to speak about music from my country, thx Chris) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLq7EcvRaf0 . Also, I love this album and I find it great Owens decided to make it short unlike many “escape from my band” album.
