This new record will make or break The Strokes. Either they're going to be one of the best bands of this decade or they're not. October 21 will tell all. It's my most anticipated album of the year. Very exciting.


Well regardless, I think Is This It is a pretty good album and shouldn't be overlooked by the success/failure of the next

Of course not, but also don't overlook the fact that they have the chance to jump to greatness with this new album. After seeing them live last year, I believe that they have the potential to be huge. This is going to be one of the most telling moments for rock music of this decade.

"Is This It" is a good album, but it's really easy to get sick of it. It's catchy stuff, but it borders on throw-away pop music. The kind of stuff that you love when you first hear it, but it just doesn't survive.

I think The White Stripes will win in the end.

I agree. I loved it at first, but now I try to throw it back into the CD mix when I'm driving in my car and end up pulling it right back out.

The new album needs to be filled with more songs like "Hard to Explain" (songs that don't grab your attention at first, but that you come to love after a few listens). Basically, they need to add more substance. I've been preaching to people for months now about this. I hope I don't turn out to look like a fool in the end.

The White Stripes will win in the end man.  It's assured.  Don't get me wrong, the Strokes are fun to listen to on occasion, but their shit just doesn't hold up after repeated listenings.  I've had the Stripes in my car for over a month now, and I'm still not sick of them.

Some tour dates have also been announced. Looks like they're playing theaters instead of clubs this time around.....weird. I'm still waiting on an Atlanta date.

There is a clearer version of the new album cover on thestrokes.com. It is awful. What a horrible cover. What are The Strokes thinking?

You can now download the new single "12:51" on many peer-to-peer sharing networks.
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.
