Some songs are OK, some are truely awful. They seem to be trying to get into a softer sound on many of the songs, and I really don't think they should go there.

I wasn't really excited by this release, it seems that I thought they could never achieve the heights of Is This It?. By the lukewarm reception that this album has been received with, looks like I was right.

I got bored 5 songs into the album. I kept listening and didn't hear anything good and by the time I got to Ize Of The World I stopped listening.

I've just bought it, and I'm not particularily impressed so far. It has a few good songs on it, but they weren't even that good.

Still, I'm still making my way through it so perhaps I will be surprised. :)

Still considering if I should get this one. I think I'll get the latest one by Foo Fighters instead.

Not going to pick it up after reading this thread.
Agreed. I'd like to remember The Strokes as the band that enthralled me with 'Is this it'?

I went out and purchased Arcade Fire's 'Funeral' instead. So far, not bad.:) (sorry for going OT)

I really like the first song on the album. Everyone should give it a listen and decide for themselves. I like it.

Juicebox is the single. It probably sounds good...

I think I'll get Is This It instead...

I expected another Room On Fire debacle, but I have to say i like the new one a lot.

Credit to the boys for not sticking to the same exact formula and taking risks while keeping some of the elements the same..
