Love or hate The Strokes, you can't go wrong with a free listen.
Radio-Indie-Pop is offering a free listen to the full length The Strokes album, First Impressions of Earth, released just yesterday. (All you have to do is register for the site.)
I broke down and signed up for Rhapsody last night and listened to the disc there. It was surprisingly more than just okay, though at times it comes off like a Lou Reed tribute album. The songs are catchy and tense, and I may yet decide it's their best effort yet.
Catching up on last year's discs, I started soaking in the strains of Bruce Springsteen's Devils and Dust. Just a couple listens to the title track and you'll start to see why that album ranked so high on people's lists last year. When the Boss sings, "Fear is a dangerous thing," I have a few ideas about what he might be referring to. This might be one of Springsteen's moodiest offerings in a while.
