If someone out there has vinyl copies of the original and later pressings, there are probably subtle runout variations that could differentiate the pressings. When The Strokes burst onto the scene with their debut album, "Is This It," back in 2001, they ignited a rock revival that resonated with fans around the world. Three singles were released from the album: 'Hard to Explain'/'New York City Cops', 'Last Nite', and 'Someday'. Among the many highlights are Last Nite with its insistent motown backbeat and choppy johnny thunders-like guitar solo, Barely Legal, sounding like 1980s-era Cure fronted by a saucy Iggy Pop, and the jangly Someday with its hairshirt of vulnerability from a bad break-up.

With Is This It, their debut album, the Strokes burst onto the music scene with a slouching, drawling rock'n'roll shrug that epitomized the frenetic nostalgia of the early 2000s.In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases. But years on, the casual objectification and sexual provocation of the image speaks volumes about the music and fashion scenes at the time, and just how much they have changed. The album which changed modern rock music back in 2001; you can blame them for skinny jeans but ten years on you can't argue with the likes of 'Last Nite' or 'Hard To Explain'.

Released in 2001, the album captured a zeitgeist for the hedonism of late nights in sticky-floored dive bars. The guitars have a satisfying crunch, the drums punch through with intensity, and Julian Casablancas' iconic vocals take center stage in a way that feels raw and unfiltered.is one of the most exciting and energetic debut albums to spring from New York’s long dormant club scene. Is this it", is one of those rare musical treats that remains consistently brilliant from start to finish, with its catchy rythyms and chorus lines and tremendous use of the bass guitar, best captured in the albums two stand out tracks (In my opinion anyway) "Barely legal" and "Hard to explain". Clocking in at 36 minutes, Is This It packs its perfect length with stellar songs that draw inspiration from all over the map. Arriving on a wave of well-earned hype rooted in tight chops and a confident swagger, the Strokes offer a rock and roll antidote to the plague of boy bands, teen divas, and petulant rap-rock outfits.

Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. My only complaints are the package feels like it's missing a lyric sheet and I'm not too keen on the vinyl splatter, would've preferred a teal-ish colour to match the cover art. The band consists of lead vocalist Julian Casablancas, guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr. First and foremost, let's talk about the packaging and presentation of this limited edition release.This was the first vinyl I ever bought alongside Room on Fire at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame during a trip in 2010. Holding the record in your hands, you can immediately sense the craftsmanship and love put into this release. The model (his girlfriend at the time) agreed to pose impromptu in the black leather glove after emerging one morning from the shower. I'm surprised at how long it's taken them to do a pressing with both When It Started and New York City Cops but glad to finally own one. Mine was added to my collection over 6 years ago when I first started really using discogs to keep track of my collection.

Tracks like "Last Nite," "Someday," and "Hard to Explain" showcase the band's knack for crafting irresistible hooks and catchy choruses.For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. Also, the RT version doesn't have "When It Started" like the VMP pressing, but that is the weakest song on the album IMO. Despite this quintet's prep-school background, their sound comes from the same primordial ooze that spawned big apple legends like the New York Dolls, the Modern Lovers and the Velvet Underground. The time was ripe for the scratchy, post-punk influenced guitars and throwback basslines of the Strokes, together with their tousled hair and don't-care attitude.
