    Ear Candy to cram down your audio gullet

    The Stokes serve up yet another scrumptious nine-course meal ideal for sonic gluttony! The New Abnormal has much to brag about with the melodic magnitude of the album, the fully completed and brilliantly executed themes, synchronized solos, virulent vocals, and sublime sound production. However, there are a few unique elements that also stand out: First, The Adults Are Talking. Yes, they are. True to form, The Strokes deliver a killer opening track. This has been a unique hallmark for the band: they consistently kick things off with a track that provides perfect tone for the entire album, which is typically one of the best songs on the album, but is rarely one of the "hit singles" for the album. The opening riff is an audio time machine that transports the listener right back into Room on Fire. But rather than vamp on nostalgia, The Strokes use it as a launchpad to further explore their sound. Another example of this can be found in Not the Same Anymore where the vocals and accompaniment during the chorus could easily be mistaken for a forgotten track on Is This It or Room on Fire. This experience happens throughout the album and is one of its most appealing qualities. Another deft touch is the candid studio banter embedded in a few of the songs. It conveys a genuine comradery amongst the group, which is especially pleasant given the well-documented history of discord among one another. That levity can also be felt when Jules uses lyrics that seem to speak directly to the band. One instance is in Ode to the Mets when he mumbles off mid-verse as if something doesn’t feel right and says, “Uh… drums please Fab?” Two other instances arrive in Brooklyn Bridge to Chorus (one of the album’s best songs) where at the end of the bridge, Jules sings, “Can we switch into the chorus, right now?” before going back into the chorus. Earlier in the song, he also says “break” as the music momentarily comes to an absolute stop. Ever since Room On Fire, there has been a separation of The Strokes fanbase. The purists, that believe only the first two albums embody the true essence of the group (including those who say it is only in the debut album), and the broader (but perhaps smaller) fanbase that appreciates the full body of their work. This might be the first album in nearly 20 years that appeals to both.

    This is what I look for in music

    I love this album I’m very new to their music and this has REALLY made me a fan of them even more. I’m impressed, the first week it came out I didn’t sleep for 2 days bc all I did was listen to this album

    Start to Finish

    I have had this since it came out over a month ago and I can’t stop listening. Start to finish A+. Love all the 80’s influences from the Smith, Phyco Furs, some Billy idol and even a Little Ramones to name a few. Best music so far this year!

    i got to hear a few of these songs live at their new year’s concert. i liked them both (ode to the mets & the adults are talking) better live. i was hoping they’d grow on me more after listening to the album enough, but they didn’t—i still wish they sounded as good as they had in person. almost all of my favorite songs on here are ruined by...something. eternal summer and selfless’s endings kind of peter out, and it’s disappointing because the rest of each song is so good. there’s an off-key guitar part right before the chorus in the adults are talking. the chorus in brooklyn bridge to chorus sounds sonically shallow in comparison to the rest of the song. none of the songs feel energising or immersive enough to me. that’s something that pretty much every other strokes song has made me feel. the production doesn’t really save it (rick rubin is not my favorite. he ruined californication). to me, this entire record just feels...tired. and that’s not because it’s more vulnerable than their other albums. also, a lot of the lyrics and guitar hooks sound very uninspired. i’m looking at you, bad decisions! that said, it isn’t a bad album. i’m just disappointed. i also don’t understand why so many fans love this album and hate comedown machine. is this it > comedown machine > room on fire > angles > first impressions > this
