About this album

Comedown Machine is the fifth studio album by American indie rock band The Strokes, which was released on March 26, 2013 in the U.S., and on March 25 in the UK. This was the final release in fulfilling the band’s contract agreement with longtime label RCA Records.
Without much promotional effort, Comedown Machine entered the UK Albums Chart at #10 and became the band’s first album not to debut within the top three. The album did, however, give the band their fifth consecutive appearance in the top ten. Likewise, it reached #10 in the US with an entry sales week of 41,000 units, the band’s weakest performance since Is This It in 2001.

    I think this album didn't get quite the attention it deserved... In my opinion, it's much better than Angles and First Impressions of Earth.

    I really love this album. I also understand why a lot of people wouldn't like it, especially people who just want another "Is This It". To me the variety of this album makes it. I also really like Casablancas's solo work, and I think that influenced this album (and how much I like it) a lot.

    I love how diverse this album is. Each track brings something different to the table, yet it's a logical continuation for this band. Very eager to hear whatever they come up with next.

    I have to admit that I wasn't really into it when I first tried listening to it, but now, I'm totally addicted to it. Comedown Machine would've gotten great reviews if it wasn't by The Strokes.

    people think that only because Is This It was a masterpiece, this album is a piece of shit. well, i pity them critics and fans. they're overlooking one of the best albums of 2013. it's full of wonderful and catchy songs that make you come back to this album forever. no weak tracks. just the strokes embracing an 80s vibe and delivering well written tracks and perfecting their indie rock sound. better than angles. this is a 9/10 record for sure.
