The only reason First Impressions succumbs to boycott is because it loses all track of method, and when compared to the kept together rock that was Is This It and even the self-plagiarised Room On Fire, the third effort seems to be simply that, and nothing more – a nice try. The New Yorkers are harder to hold onto because of the obstacle they set themselves; four big ‘n’ bouncy singles front the album, each overwrought with Casablanca’s sneer and sleaze. In the end, it should be Room On Fire that is tested and blamed for what will eventually see The Strokes out of relevance and off the planet; First Impressions of Earth should be a celebration, and listened to the whole way through, it barely loses out to the gritty, murky sound that’s been going around for three years.
First Impressions of Earth is different; it’s ambitious, messy, nearly as long as the first two records combined. Guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr. get to show off, while drummer Fab Moretti provides the forward momentum that makes the Strokes a killer groove band. They’ve never kicked harder than Juicebox, which turns the old Peter Gunn riff into a surf-metal snarl, or Heart in a Cage, which jumps like Iggy Pop in The Passenger. Like most rock bands, the Strokes are better at rocking than not rocking, so ravers like You Only Live Once beat failed experiments like the synth-strings ballad Ask Me Anything or the Pogues-ish waltz 15 Minutes.
