CRITIC REVIEWS

90
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.

It's good that the band is trying to change their sound a bit. Some songs work, some don't. But there are some really solid songs in this album.

Best tracks: Machu Picchu, Under Cover Of Darkness, You're So Right, Call Me Back, Gratisfaction, Metabolism, Life Is Simple In The Moonlight
