i'm terribly excited for albert's next solo album! i was SO impressed by the first one; it was right on par with the strokes (incredible) music in my opinion.

 

if it comes out around the same time as the coldplay album, i'll be in music heaven.

 

and i read (somewhere...:thinking:) that the strokes were going to start their fourth album in early 2009 once albert is finished touring. i really hope to see them again, because that was one of the best concerts i've ever been to in my life, and i'd kill to see albert if he comes around here.

idk about you guys but im really not a big fan of albert's solo work... i think the strokes together as a band are a ton better and i want them to start playing together again! albert's stuff is quality just not as driving/pumpup/inyourface/fun as the strokes stuff.

I love the Strokes. First two albums were really good. The third one was spotty, but "You Only Live Once" is probably my all-time favorite Strokes song. Can't wait for the new album. Hopefully, it will stop the fairly recent decline in popularity and album sales they have experienced. I'll buy it no matter what...

wow, I haven't listened to the strokes in a while. I don't think LP4 would be taking nearly as long if Albert Hammond Jr. wasn't doing so much solo work. I'm sort of nervous how it will turn out.

 

i've been waiting for LP4 for years now :bomb:. but they ALL have solo projects now (well, julian only does cameo stuff, i think), so their priorities are all out of whack these days. i want LP4 nowwww :bigcry:

I really have high hopes for the 4th album. I think the break was good for them. I don't know how popular the album will be, but I expect it to have good music. The Strokes are very lucky to have two good song writers in Julian and Albert. Perhaps the time apart will have given them time to grow. We'll see...

BUMP! for Jenn since u said u were interested in hearing and knowing some more about them..........YES :devilish: i shall convert u!

 

well their best album is def. the first one.....Is This It? they have 3 albums and an EP, The Modern Age that came out b4 their first album........all of their albums are great but the first is good to get into and see the Strokes sound and everything....

 

my all time fav. song is The Modern Age......it never gets old for me. and Nick's guitar solo in the middle has to be one of the best guitar solos ever IMO! :P

( o yeah dont watch the video to Juicebox the first time u listen to the song.....i kind of hate the video they did for this....its so fucked up :sick: but you have to get the meaning of the song first and then u will see how ironic the video is, and then you'll love what they ended up doing.....:P that sounds so messed up but its true! :P )

 

 

ok yeah i know those are all singles of theirs but thats prolly the best way to get into them and then listen to other songs and besides of theirs.....cus they have some other AMAZING songs! :D
