Number 30: The Strokes

If you didn't already knwo the album cover looks terrible. Like a P.O.D album cover. If you haven't heard "Juicebox" the first single from the new Strokes album not so universally loved. All signs point to the big fat drop off. The Strokes pedalling their wears to middle America.

There significance however lies in there backlash more than any other band in history(Eminem has em' beat I s'pose). It's not that there enemys make them stronger, they just make them seem like a substantially bigger deal then they would be without them. This album will be the comaprison piece for a million reviews that follow it. When Interpol or the Walkmen release their third albums they will be measured against First Impressions of Earth (I cringe as I type that title), this still could go eaither way. Right?
