HMV Review

When the Strokes returned from their lengthy post-First Impressions of Earth hiatus with Angles, they壇 been apart almost as long as they壇 been together. While they were gone, they cast a long shadow: upstarts like the Postelles and Neon Trees borrowed more than a few pages from their stylebook, and even established acts like Phoenix used the band痴 strummy guitar pop for their own devices. During that time, the members of the Strokes pursued side projects that were more or less engaging, but it felt like the band still had unfinished business; though First Impressions was ambitious, it didn稚 feel like a final statement. For that matter, neither does Angles, which arrived just a few months shy of their classic debut Is This It's tenth anniversary. Clocking in at a svelte 34 minutes, it痴 as short as the band痴 early albums, but Angles is a different beast. Somehow, the Strokes sound more retro here than they did before, with slick production coating everything in a new wave sheen. Fabrizio Moretti's drums are more precise than ever, and Julian Casablancas' voice is blanketed in distortion that stands in sharp contrast to his pristine surroundings. Nick Valensi is Angles' star, turning in witty responses to Casablancas' vocals and dazzling solos like the one that graces 典wo Kinds of Happiness' mix of power pop and post-punk. The Strokes deliver a few quintessential moments: 填nder Cover of Darkness is an uber-Strokes song, with tumbling verses that borrow 鏑ast Night's melody and soaring, secretly earnest choruses; meanwhile, 溺achu Picchu's reggae-fied strut harks back to Room on Fire. They sound even better on 典aken for a Fool, which, with lines like 溺onday, Tuesday is my weekend,・rivals their earlier songs for quotability, and on 敵ratisfaction, which plays like the perfect cross between Nick Lowe's 鄭nd So It Goes and everything Billy Joel recorded from the late ・0s to the early ・0s. [An LP version was also released.] ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

    今の音楽業界は常に変わることが求められすぎている気がする。 でも、元々シンプルでスタイリッシュなことが彼らが鮮烈だった一番のポイントだったんじゃないかな、と思うと、彼らに期待されるものではない気がする。 ずっといい曲を聴かせてくれたら、彼らはずっといいバンドでいられる。 前作はかなり複雑さを増して長大化していったけど、その反動とばかりに風通しのいい楽曲は何回聴いても心地よくて素晴らしい。 エポックメイキングなわけじゃないけど、すべてのバンドがRadioheadである必要なんてないわけだし、彼らは彼らの素晴らしさをこうして感じさせてくれるのなら、これは文句なく名盤だと思います。

    一作目のような極端な中毒性は無いが、それでもどっぷり浸れるのは流石と言わざるを得ない。全体的にスローなテンポの曲が多く、二作目・三作目のようなハードロックナンバーが無いのはすごく残念。Under cover of darknessは新たなリスナーを引き込むのには十分すぎるほどの出来栄え。 総評すると貫禄の作品といった感じ。
