Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 199/500!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Last Nite" - Rated 478/500!


Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the March 2002 Issue of Stereophile!

"Blessed and cursed with an enormous amount of hype from the British press, the Strokes prove to be one of the few groups deserving of their glowing reviews. Granted, their high-fashion appeal and faultless influences - Television, the Stooges, and especially Lou Reed and the Velvets - have ‘critics’ darlings’ written all over them. But like the similarly lauded Elastica and Supergrass before them, the Strokes don’t rehash the sounds that inspire them - they remake their own image." - All Music Guide

"The objective of Is This It, said Strokes singer Julian Casablancas, "was to be really cool and non-mainstream, and be really popular." Recorded literally under the streets of New York, this revivifying blast of guitar-combo racket passionately reconciled those seemingly contradictory aspirations and accomplished both." - www.rollingstone.com

"Youthful angst on the Lower East Side: Lou Reed vocals and cool confusion, driven by the surging, garage-band sound that would go on to define early-2000s rock. The Strokes supposedly nicked the opening riff from Tom Petty's 'American Girl.' 'I saw an interview with them where they admitted it,' Petty told Rolling Stone. 'I was like, 'OK, good for you.' It doesn't bother me." - Rolling Stone

Selections:
1. Is This It
2. The Modern Age
3. Soma
4. Barely Legal
5. Someday
6. Alone, Together
7. Last Nite
8. Hard to Explain
9. New York City Cops
10. Trying Your Luck
11. Take It or Leave It
