The Strokes - Angles (2011)




The much anticipated Strokes album has been playing in my house and iPod for the last couple of weeks over and over again in order for me to construct a solid personal review, even if a short one. 

After First Impressions of Earth (2006) the American based group created huge expectations since it took more than 5 years for them to release their new studio project. Fans all over were hoping for a work of  great resonance... Have to say... it didn't quite reached it...

Angles (2011) didn't impressed that much after a first listening session, but after a few more tries it started to grow on me and became a 2011 personal favourite (so far), even though it doesn't sustain the same quality as previous works. However, I think it's pretty consistent, with some great (great) tracks! Under Cover of Darkness serves as an excellent visiting card, offering some high expectations to listeners ... 

With Two Kinds of Happiness and Taken by a Fool I complete my top 3 tracks of the whole album. Take a listen...
