I listen to Room on Fire at least once a day. When I first heard it, it was much like when I first heard Is This It - everything was very cruisy and easy to listen to.
Then riffs, lyrics, and drumbeats start coming out and you get a real feel for the album.

At the moment I'm really into Reptilia, 12:51 and The End Has No End. The first three tracks are great. I didn't like You Talk Way Too Much at all when I first heard it, but I'm into it now.

Modern Age02, you seem to be The Strokes guru here - you were talking about the strokes taking NYC cops off Is This It, which I sort of knew about, but is this still the case?

I'm just curious is all, because I live in Australia, and we have the glove and butt cover cd of Is This It with NYC cops. Does America have that cover which looks a bit like a map on it premanently, + do you have to order and import for the other cover?

yeah america still (and probably forever) has the weird map looking cover, so i ordered the import version to begin with 2 years ago because i didnt like the idea of my album being censored.  (although i can understand why, i just think that the album is much much better the original way.)

Yeah I totally agree. It's a much cooler cover too. Does anyone have their current set list at the moment?

I'll be seeing them in january, when they come out to aus

Wow, that site's pretty amazing - so they are looking for people to record all their different concerts? kinda cool.

When you think about it 16-18 songs isn't that much when you consider how short their songs are. They never do encores? That's weird. I'm usually dying while waiting for encores anyway cos I'm so buggered by then.

When they come for big day out, for the solo shows I'm going to try and get as close as I can, in front of albert. he's on the left hand side of the stage isn't he? (right for the audience). Do they really not move around that much? Does Julian come up to the crowd much?

I saw them a year ago and they were good, but for the main act their set list was so short and no encore.  They played for about 30 mins.

I'm actually really loving the new album, really appreciating the way they can lurch from one beautifully textured, very melodic bit to the next... I think I like it better than the first (though there's nothing so catchy as "Someday," probably my favorite Strokes song ever). I actually think I like it a little better than the new Belle and Sebastian album which, before I'd heard them both, I would never have believed and in fact would have denounced as blasphemy. But there you have it...
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Albert's looking pretty awesome nowadays. He has a Blonde on Blonde era Dylan fro going on. He's let it grow since Is This It?. I thought it looked great.

Yes, usually during "Take It Or Leave It."

NEW STROKES SONG!  (stop the presses, alert the media)...

their new single "Reptilia" has a b-side called "Modern Girls and Old Fashioned Men" which is a duet with tour opener Regina Specktor they recorded a few months ago.  its pretty bizarre, but you can download it for 99 cents exclusively at iTunes.  (it was my first paid download, I BROKE!)
