CRITIC REVIEWS

musicOMH

Disjointed, hyperactive, experimental, whatever. Angles is the album to beat this year.

80
Drowned in Sound

It’s The Strokes trying on a load of outfits to see what fits and personally, I think a lot of them fit well.

80
Consequence of Sound

It’s a sultry exhibition, one that spotlights the band’s strengths, yet also its weaknesses.

60
PopMatters

It’s odd that a group that’s pretty much better than anyone else at being too cool for school sometimes seems to be trying too hard on Angles.

59
Pitchfork

Not a roaring comeback as much as a glorified spit-balling session.

30
Tiny Mix Tapes

The Strokes aren’t simply a great let-down, but the best-band-that-should-have-broken-up-long-ago.

A refreshing take from The Strokes. Perhaps it's not as hard hitting as their earlier days, but this is the most fun they have ever seemed to have.
