The Strokes are an iconic and well renowned indie rock band from New York, featuring Julian Casablancas and Albert Hammond Jr.. In 2001 the band released their debut album, Is This It., evoking awe from the music scene . Is This It was ranked number eight on Rolling Stone's 100 Best Debut Albums of All Time, number two on Rolling Stone's 100 Best Albums of the 2000s, ,and 199 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. After having went their separate ways following their fourth album, the band reunited in 2013 to release their 5th and latest full length album, Comedown Machine. Released on March 2013, Comedown Machine, was met with mostly favorable reviews. Metacritic rated the album a 68, which is well off the mark. I can understand those going into the album expecting it to be like the others may be disappointed, but the album maintains the traditional 'sound' of The Strokes; however they are more experimental, dabbling in a more 80s electronic vibe and electronic beats. Julian Casablancas appears to have been very influential in the formation of this album because it has a similar essence to his solo work. The song, "One Way Trigger" is a splendid example of Julian Casablancas having a significant positive influence on the song. The vocals on that song are so crisp and near perfect. While this album may not be the 'old' Strokes, Comedown Machine, is a breath of fresh air into this indie icon.
