First Impressions...(of the New Year)

So one of the first releases for 2006 is The Strokes.
Their third album.
If you hadn't gotten the leaked copy you probably haven't missed a whole lot according to Pitchfork. Pitchfork gave the album a 5.9 out of 10.

First Impressions sound prickly and confident. When the band is on, the songs attain the force and fury of previous outings. Unfortunately, the album is also clogged with a number of tracks that are as sloppy...if nothing else, possess a certain schadenfreude, allowing a fascinating glimpse at a band futilely grasping in all directions for something new and meaningful, only to fumble with a half-fragment of unformed idea between its desperate fingers.
