    I like it. It's a different sound with Julians falsetto, but I think it's good.

    Julian sounds as if he has no desire whatsoever to sing in this band.

    So I love the Strokes, (unlike most) loved the last album, and love new wave. This fucking sucked.

    Jesus! I expected a bad song after the comments above, but fuck me that sounds like a band filling its recording contract with any old bullshit.

    What's up with the falsetto? Stop. The synths sound too fast and kid-boppy... Some classic Strokes guitar layered throughout but no real hook.

    You are exactly right DFrank. Maybe they just wanted to try something new, but it sounds like it's just filler for the album.
    Oh look it stopped snowing...

    It sounds a lot like Julians solo record, with some Strokes mixed in. I really liked the solo record, but I know a lot of people did not.

    Definitely some "corporate synergy" going on with the cover-turned-billboard.

    The first official single "All the Time" from the new album up now!

    http://www.thestrokes.com/us/allthetime

    I like it more than the first track. Sounds way more like a Strokes song.

    I really dig it. And I also like One Way Trigger. Looking forward to this album and the hopefully ensuing summer tour we missed out on in 2011!
