The Strokes – Angles (2011)

The much-anticipated fourth strokes album picks up where the band left off five years ago- with an obvious yearning for growth and versatility. Incorporating the Strokes’ 70’s style beats with more electronic flavor than previous albums, Angles shows more unpredictability than the band has displayed in past albums, undoubtedly due to a much more collaborative creative input amongst the band members.

The album takes listeners on a roller coaster ride exploring the highs and lows of the emotional scale and Julian Casablancas vocal range. Although this mixed bag collection of songs tends to not flow well at times, the album is punctuated by such gems as Under Cover Of Darkness, Taken For A Fool, and Gratisfaction that remind die-hard Strokes fans of why they fell in love with the band in the first place, and new listeners why they should want the band to pull together for a fifth album.
