Let's be realistic

Julian Casablancas new album is not even that great.
He's not that same person who etched out Is this It? album
if you had to compare Phrazes to Is This It?
we would all say Phrazes is complete shit!
It is, he only has 8 songs on their.
Some songs sound like country inspired.
Julian is not that same person he was at the turn of the century.
When i saw the strokes play live on late night shows.
i was like damm that's what is all about
and now when i saw julian on conan i was pretty much disappointed
After First Impressions it all went downhill from there
You must be a stupid person not to agree with me on this?
This is my favorite team The SAN DIEGO CHARGERS over julian's favorite team the new york jets

Whoa! just read your comment and wow! did you listen to the album more than once? Listen, completely no disrespect, but IMHO people jump to conclusions way to fast, but maybe you didn't. Maybe you actually don't like it at all. Heck, when I first heard "River of Brakelights" I was taken aback--I didn't know what to think. I even wondered why they had chosen to release it as a follow up to 11th Dimension. And now, it is probably one of my all-time favs (The Strokes and Julian just come out with the sickest shiat that there are so many favs to choose from-it's like each album is a fav). River of Brakelights.....if I was on the moon and listening to this song, I'd never come down; I'd never touch the ground-that's how sick that song is. Frankly, Julian just raised the bar, not up, but in a completely new and unmatched musical direction--comparable to no one. Hell, he's his own bar. This guy is just "effin genius" (as I've seen it posted on different sites). I saw him live on 11/6/09 at the Palace Theater and his performance was just inspirational to say the least. (I'm even considering seeing him again on 11/20/09). That's how great I think his new album is. So without disrespecting your opinion, I must completely disagree with your take on Julian's new album.

Yeah, Cristiano Ronaldo sucks. I don't follow the NFL or soccer very closely, but I know more about soccer than American football. Dunno how we got on this topic haha.

I completly ignore soccer. It's like a religion in europe, but I just don't find it interesting. Every guy I know who plays soccer in my school is very, VERY dumb. They're like a poor version of Cristiano Ronaldo. I fuckin hate Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's NFL bitches

not soccer
well anyway FC Barcelona will kick anyone's ass
that's my team and also CF America from Mexico
My teams will fuck you guys up anyday

Really? Dang. My dad watches FSC like religiously...following the English Premier League and all. I'll watch it occasionally, but I don't have a favorite team or anything. I've played soccer (or football I suppose. never understood why we call it soccer anyway) my whole life. As for American football, it's very entertaining, but once again I'm not a fanatic. I think most fans are fanatics though, so you're right about the atmosphere.

That's like me though: whenever I go to Europe (hopefully within the next ten years) I'm going to try to catch a football game...a legit one for once haha.

Cool ! When I go to America i think ill defo try and catch a game. They had a nfl game in london the other week I think they do it every year now, but i doubt its anywhere near the same sort of vibe. Malcom glazer who owns Tampa Bay bucaneers bought Manchester united a few years back and all the united fans protested against it because he had so much personal debt they were worried he would just sell all the top players and not spend it on new ones. They even formed ttheir own new club called FC United in protest and they had to start in the very bottom league (like 20th league in England) but I think they have got promoted every season so far , so they are climbing pretty fast!!!

No, I'd say football is definitely the most popular sport. My cousins in Florida are the only people I know who like Nascar. Bleck. It's hard to even type that word haha. Tickets are very expensive, but I'm not quite sure how much. I've only been to one game ever, and I didn't pay for my ticket.

Compare that to the bazillion soccer (DC United) games I've been to that typically range from $16-$35. It's so sad, the soccer stadiums here are basically empty. I wish I lived in Europe haha.

Unfortunately i think nascar is the most popular sport. Even though I dont think it qualifies as a sport. I love football though the greatest reciever of all time was jerry rice. Look up some videos and stats on him you will be amazed. barry sanders or walter payton are amazing as well at the running back position. I could keep going I hope you enjoy those players.

It's the most popular sport, yeah. There have been a lot of great teams, and it's a little bit of a toss-up every year. Ticket prices vary, because there are so many seats in each stadium.

Is American Football the most popular sport in America??? who are the Best teams of all time and stuff and best players and how much is it to go and watch

Big win for the Bolts.

I like it. It's not too reminiscent of music during the Strokes era, but I like it. I guess my taste is considered broad?

Anyway, isn't Phrazes a longer album in terms of duration? Maybe it isn't, but I heard that somewhere and have yet to do any addition.

PHRAZES certainly isn't selling very well. Love it or hate it, I think Julian damaged its chances by not putting a video out in the weeks prior to its release. Does anyone know if a video is planned, ever?

One video would probably help album sales more than his touring.

fuck you ditto
the jets are fucked they suck ass
THe chargers will take them out anyday!
SAN DIEGO SUPER CHARGERS!!!!!!!!!

at least Rivers dosent throw stupid picks like mark sanchez doeas

Fuck you douchebag.
You don't know music dynamics. Fuck, art dynamics.
You're an idiot sir. Get the fuck out. All of you. (=
Go listen to your Metro Station

Win or lose, the Chargers are a fucked organization, Sergio. Philip Rivers throws like a girl and Sean Marion is a chick-beating roid freak. You should be supporting your fellow Latino, Sanchez. See you in the playoffs.

fuck the jets
they suck more dick than paris hilton
the chargers are way better

Disagree. The new album is a whole 'nother level of music and awesomeness. And the Jets fucking rule.

sadly but yes,
julian changed for the worse in my opinion

Yeah, he's not the same guy from ITI. But people and music change.
