2011 is already turning into a better year for music industry with releases from The Decemberists, PJ Harvey and now The Strokes. Feels good.

Re: Strokes - Under Cover of Darkness

I know i've been excited for this album for so long. I really hope it something special!
The song is surprisingly upbeat. The song title had been out for a while and I was expecting something a lot darker.

Re: Strokes - Under Cover of Darkness

I like the song. I'm confident they'll have better stuff on the album though.

It's nice to see a thread on this board about music which is made by actual musicians, for once.

Does anybody else listen to The Arcade Fire? They're recent album was very good.

Arcade Fire is my favorite band. The new album was incredible. Fave songs: Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains), City With No Children, We Used to Wait, and Ready to Start. If they don't win the Grammy it'll be tragic.

Also dig The Stokes. The new song is great!

Great Choices! My favorites are City With No Children, Sprawl II, Empty Room, and We Used to Wait.

The Suburbs is my favorite of their albums.

As for The Strokes... I don't really have a favorite album. There are a number of tracks on each that I love. Will post a list later; I don't usually remember song names off the top of my head - Arcade Fire's recent album is the exception.

Neon Bible would have to be my favorite. Every single song on that album is stellar. The Strokes have a few standout tracks to me: Modern Age, What Ever Happened, and 12:51.

Re: Strokes - Under Cover of Darkness

Theres only 10 tracks on Angles, but i'm all for quality over quantity.

And have to agree with you guys on The Suburbs. Amazing album.

i think nothing beats the debut album "is this it". that was such a fresh, spunky, short, sharp record. and it still is!

looking forward to "angles". i really hope it was worth the wait!

I've been looking forward to a new Strokes album for years. I just love them. But this is their last album, isn't it?

Excited but nervous about Julian's divaliciousness.

Benji Schwimmer is gay. Do the sister wives know?!

Uhh I don't think they have said anything like that, but it's no secret that they don't get along that great anymore

Re: Strokes - Under Cover of Darkness

Just heard it today. The guitars are the best part, its good that they still have their usual sound. The vocals are turned down a bit and seem to be an accompaniment for the guitars. Good that they finished the album though. They had to junk most of the original recordings and redo them.
