THE STROKES Topped US Albums Charts 15 Years Ago With ‘FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF EARTH’

Back in time…

8 January 2021

Band: THE STROKES (New York)

Album: FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF EARTH – third LP
Released: 30 December 2005
Score: On 8 Jan 2006, 15 years ago today,
the longplayer topped the US charts.

Turn Up The Volume: The critics didn’t like it. Who cares? I guess they had to much
end-of-the-year pie in their ears when they listened to it. For me, it’s one of the best
works of the New York darlings. Solid gold songwriting with a series of jangly killer
strokes including that brilliant paranoia knockout Fear Of Sleep.

Highlights…

– FEAR OF SLEEP –

– YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE –

– JUICEBOX –
