They Hate Each Other! :(Posted by albertman on August 12, 2010 at 12:59 nachmittags
For all you die hard fans like me that have been reading EVERY interview with Julian, its pretty obvious, the relationship has gone south! It was hard for me to accept at first because I truly believe The Strokes are the best band alive today! I am not in the norm with fans though, I thought every album got progressively better. My favorite is "First Impressions of Earth". I know some fans prefere the earlier 2 but thats just me. I dont always like a direction a band grows into. A good example is the new Arcade Fire album "The Suburbs". I love Funeral and Loved Neon Bible even better, but they have let me down with "the Suburbs". Now its not that its a bad album, its just a direction im not really diggin. Im hoping that The Strokes keep on the path they are on. If things go as they have been, im totally on board. Julian did say if he had to compare it to any album, he would compare it to "First Impressions of Earth". Which makes me totally happy, i mean cmon, IZE of the world and Electricityscape, those are songs only made possible by the amazing progression of The Strokes. But i'd love to hear if anyone else is on board with what im sayin ;). Peace!
