I'm surprised at how long it's taken them to do a pressing with both When It Started and New York City Cops but glad to finally own one. Is this it", is one of those rare musical treats that remains consistently brilliant from start to finish, with its catchy rythyms and chorus lines and tremendous use of the bass guitar, best captured in the albums two stand out tracks (In my opinion anyway) "Barely legal" and "Hard to explain". Is this it' is my favourite album of all time, mainly because you feel like you're walking around on a rainy day, overcast day in New York when you listen to it.Known for their garage rock revival sound, they quickly gained popularity with their debut album "Is This It" in 2001. is one of the most exciting and energetic debut albums to spring from New York’s long dormant club scene.

Three singles were released from the album: 'Hard to Explain'/'New York City Cops', 'Last Nite', and 'Someday'. With their catchy melodies, raw energy, and stylish image, The Strokes became a leading force in the indie rock scene of the early 2000s. Clocking in at 36 minutes, Is This It packs its perfect length with stellar songs that draw inspiration from all over the map. They didn't press more US vinyl copies for several years (there were just the original ~5,000 floating around), but when they did start re-pressing vinyl copies years later, they kept "New York City Cops" and used the same catalog number/bar code as the 2001 vinyl version. The Strokes" owe more to "Joy Division" or "The Velvet Underground", than they do to either of the afforementioned (not to say massively over-rated) bands.Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). The New Yorkers’ kickstarter for the 2000s indie scene spawned numerous singles including 'The Modern Age', 'Someday', 'Hard To Explain', and remains cherished by fans old and new. Arriving on a wave of well-earned hype rooted in tight chops and a confident swagger, the Strokes offer a rock and roll antidote to the plague of boy bands, teen divas, and petulant rap-rock outfits.
