Just discovered 'em with their latest album: "First Impressions Of Earth", very very good! Let's be honest, there aint nothing really new, musically speaking but it's really nice to listen to...
And so, a few days later, I bought "Is This It" & "Room On Fire", excellent too!

Well, I must say something about "First Impressions...", don't you think it's a bit too long (1h), there are maybe too many songs, i.e. 'In The Evening Sun' which I really don't like...
I'm happy, hope you're happy too!

Juicebox is just amazing - one of my all-time favourite songs...

the free download from their myspace of a Demo of You Only Live Once called "I'll Try Anything Once" is pretty awesome...

better than You Only Live Once I think..>

still Strokes are one amazing band that we have bands like Libertines and Arctic Monkeys to thank them for - opening up the avenues and inspiring them

He's dating Drew Barrymore.. Right?

I've seen them live twice.. Great. Last time Julian said "Hej mor" in the middle of the set.. Which is "hi mom" in danish. Weird. :milton:
