The Strokes, Mark II

Albert Hammond, Jr. is back with his second solo album since The Strokes farted out First Impressions of Earth in 2006. Not to diminish his credibility, since Yours to Keep was a fantastic record and a true return to Strokes form. And though this second album doesn’t have the fiery punch of guitar pop majesty that his first album had, there are a few songs to write home about, chiefly ‘GfC’. Don’t ask me what it stands for, maybe you can find it on Wikipedia. It’s not only the best song on the album, but also the first single from ¿Cómo Te Llama?, which comes out tomorrow.

¡Ay, dios mio!
I agree, not as fiery as the predecessor. But still pretty darned good.

One of the songs I was able to nab before disappearing into the bush earlier this summer. I love les Strokes, and have always had a soft spot for Al. The first album was money.

Listen to Hard to Live In The City or Back to the 101 if you don’t believe me. Can’t wait to get the new one!
