The Strokes - Angles
"...Angles is more than a recapitulation of the band’s salad days. The sonic exploration of First Impressions is pushed further but also reigned-in by the Strokes’ signature template. Though the Velvet Underground remain a heavy influence on their sound (especially the Velvet’s weirder side, see the album’s weakest track “Call Me Back”), Angles shines as a whiplash tour of New Wave, from Blondie’s island dalliances (“Machu Picchu”) to the Talking Heads (“Two Kinds of Happiness”). Indeed, the early-80s are proudly on display right on Angles’ cover, with its Day Glo colors and proto-CGI abstract artwork. Improbably, Angles also finds the band at their most modern: Casablancas’ chanting overdubs and robotic lead vocals on the cold and twitchy “You’re So Right” nod at Radiohead (though he claims the song is influenced by R.E.M.). Sure, the Strokes steal with abandon, but unlike lesser bands, they don’t merely imitate – they recast and often improve on their inspirations..." (Read More: http://prettymuchamazing.com)

About: "..Angles as a whole is not by any means a return to form for The Strokes (though lead single Under Cover Of Darkness certainly fits right in with the rest of the band’s body of work). Instead, it feels like a scorched earth imagining of what The Strokes minimalist debut might have sounded like had it hit a decade later...." (http://www.musicomh.com)
