The Strokes - Room on Fire
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Strokes - Room on FireWith their raunchy sound and snotty attitude, New York’s the Strokes were the darlings in the vanguard of the recent garage-rock revolution. The followup to the band’s wildly successful debut, 2001’s Is This It, still untitled at press time, promises giddy new-wave-ish numbers like “12:51,” reggae-tinged tunes like “Ze Newie” and a soul ballad called “Under Control.” The Strokes’ perfectionist approach to recording meant that Nigel Godrich—producer of Radiohead, no less—was jettisoned in favor of Gordon Raphael.
