Man, I remember I went out and bought First Impressions of Earth on release day. There's only three albums I've done that for. Already been 10 years... When it came out, the Strokes' style of rock was beginning to pass out of favor, and the production on the new record was different, a bit cleaner. There were a few filler tracks on it, but I feel like the album got treated way too harshly by the music critics.
