I have been tinkering with the idea of this for a few days after relistening to The Strokes Comedown Machine. Let's pick a band who has had undoubtedly had their share of great albums then released a few albums that left fans scratching their heads. Then make a 12 track or an album worth of songs/80 minutes worth from the less desirable albums to help fans catch up without all what we concur as a collective filter. I do not want one person to pick everything so two or three songs max per a band and we can discuss what should and should not be on this as well what flows better for an collective "catch up album".Also another rule no embedding please just put a link to your youtube links.
So first up The Strokes since they inspired this thread.I would say arguably that most people consider First Impressions of Earth,Angles,Comedown Machine are their undesirables.
I think "50/50 "has a early The Stroke sound yet wouldn't really fit on This is It or Room of Fire,no synths,played fast, and somewhat angry.
As well "Under Cover of Darkness" sounds like it belongs on Room of Fire
