Still listening to this regularly, solid album except I almost always skip Eternal Summer & Why Are Sundays So Depressing

can't understand the obsession with albums staying at 80, if you consider this is a 100 or a 20 it doesn't really matter, the average score doesn't need to reflect your individual opinion, and you don't need validation to like something.

remember that the bald man gave 4 to saint cloud

8/10 I TOLD EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU BITCH ASS HATERS ITS GOING UP FROM HERE LMAO SUCK IT
6mo
Ayye!
6mo
Ayyyyyy, it got an 8, also I said on eternal summer Julian Sounds like Roger Waters from Floyd as soon as it dropped, anthony gets it... except that was actually one of my favorite songs on the album
6mo
Let's go

stable kings

The Strokes and Childish Gambino fans won't let you dislike their album, because every single or album is historic and 100/100 is the lowest note you can give.
6mo
As soon as the melon review is up the score will plummet
6mo
this kinda gets old real fast tbh

predicting a 60 from melon rn

With that being said, I've never been a big Strokes fan, mostly cos I don't really care for Julian's voice. It's oftentimes either unenthusiastic or irritating to me. Despite this, helped with some punchy production, the album turned out alright. Especially love the opener.
6mo
Got a question: why does user score matter so much? Like yeah, it's kinda interesting, but I don't get the overall commentary on it that happens so frequently. At the end of the day, what matters the most is whether you yourself enjoys an album. I know, "well, Fantano affects the user score cos it always drops off when he gives an album a negative review." So? It's annoying that there's people like that, but the endless commentary isn't helpful and you just need to accept that it just happens. The comments should be about the album or artist, everything else feels pointless and irrelevant.

Julian's voice on the chorus of Eternal Summer reminds me of Roger Waters
6mo
funny how all hyped albums always stay 80 till Melons review
6mo
To the next person who says that we're just Strokes fans fishing for reasons to like the Strokes again, I was not a Strokes fan. I just think this is an incredible album. There are quite a few people here who feel the same. Stop trying to figure out our opinions...that's why we've written reviews.
6mo
Liked this album on the whole - thought it plateaued a bit, and I'm still very confused as to why they put "At the Door" - arguably the least inspired and most repetitive track here - out as the *lead* single... good time tough overall.
6mo
Heaven to a Tortured mind is a current career opus, as opposed to The New Abnormal being an astute return to form for the Strokes. I don’t see how they’re comparable. But I’m glad the strokes fans finally got the album they’ve waited FOREVER for.
6mo
Anthony will probably 7 it, and i will probably defend him when he does. if this didn’t have the strokes name on it, it’d probably be at a 74, but everyone wants a strokes record to be good again, and we haven’t had one in 7 years, so everyone’s pretending it’s better than it is. what a weird music community.
6mo
Still sitting at an 80. Now we just wait for Fantano.
6mo
chill out kids, i've really liked the album but let's see people's opinion 🦜
6mo
when I wake up tomorrow and see that it’s dipped under 80, i’m going back to sleep.
6mo
Ok can we escape the stay above 80 game for a sec and just acknowledge how many of these albums are staying in the high 70s consistently? We’ve had 4 big albums now in the last 4 weeks that have managed to live up to the hype. Just really goes to show that 2020 is shaping up to be a great year for music. We’ll get one to stay above 80 eventually folks.

If this doesn’t stay above 80 FUCK YOU (2)
6mo
you guys underrate all these other albums and then overrate the just pretty good strokes album just because it’s the strokes’ first album in 7 years and you don’t want to live with the reality that it’s just pretty good. weird community.
6mo
If this doesn’t stay above 80 FUCK YOU
6mo
I really wanted to agree with P4k, but they've actually never been more wrong.
6mo
Pitchfork rate is too high. The Strokes is overrated by his fanbase.
6mo
NO TRAP BEATS. NO SWEDISH SONGWRITERS.
6mo
over 82%? y'all grew up with these huh
6mo
FANTANO HELP US GIVE IT A 9
6mo
please stay above 80
6mo
fuck pitchfork (2)

eternal summer is super split I see... people either love it or hate it.
6mo
it's 79/100 on metacritic hm...
6mo
It'll probably be like Angles, a mix of everything and anything. At least judging by what has been released so far (a synth-rock track, synthy power ballad and an old-school rock song). I wish they did something more conceptual and stylistically cohesive for a change.
6mo
Not a great sign if entertainment weekly is dropping the high score. 🤷🏻‍♂️

im going to pee my pants
6mo
okay these reviews are lookin epic
6mo
what the heck I almost had a syncope
6mo
Read the Loud and Quiet review. I’m not really worried about the album still, the review wasn’t too great (and someone needs to learn how to edit...).
6mo
Wow, Loud and Quiet must have a problem with lengths over 4 minutes eh?
6mo
someone just added the av club with a 5/100 as the score and the source is a wikipedia article where the site's not even mentioned? lol

Added a few reviews, some of which seem to be print-only at the moment.

If that's not allowed, please remove and forgive. Not intended to manipulate score.
6mo
This will be their best album.

Please be good please be good please be good please be good

A Strokes song called "Eternal Summer" and that also is the longest song in their discography sounds like it could also be the best song in their discography.
8mo
I’ve heard 4/9 of the songs now, and so far The New Abnormal is better than every album has dropped since Room on Fire. Let’s see if The Strokes can finally top their debut, because its looking quite promising.
8mo
H Y P E D ! ! ! !
