The day the album came out, there’s a photo of me grinning in front of a rack of them in Virgin Records. I think my ex-girlfriend was pleased too. I’ve never revealed her identity’.

The Strokes released their debut album, Is This It, in the US in October 2001. The album was produced by Gordon Raphael, as was their follow-up album Room On Fire. RCA delayed the North American (US) release over concerns with the album's cover and lyrics. While critics noted the influence of CBGB stalwarts Television, Casablancas and bandmates said they had never heard the band, instead citing the Velvet Underground as a reference point.

So it goes with the Strokes, a band that's seen enough publicity in 2001 to make bin Laden jealous. Touted by the press as "the forefathers of a bold new era in rock," "the greatest rock band since the Rolling Stones" and "the second coming of the Velvet Underground," the Strokes have nowhere to go but out of style.

Granted, their high-fashion appeal and faultless influences - Television, the Stooges, and especially Lou Reed and the Velvets - have "critics' darlings" written all over them. But like the similarly lauded Elastica and Supergrass before them, the Strokes don't rehash the sounds that inspire them - they remake them in their own image.

This album is filled with examples of Strokes’ indispensability. That these songs for the most part represent material that the band have played since their inception tells you a lot about its quality: the band were inspired from the beginning, and that spontaneity has been captured.

Few albums in modern pop history can match the instant, game-changing impact of Is This It. Almost overnight, rock ’n’ roll turned grittier, haircuts grew shaggier and the secondhand-blazer section at your local thrift store got a lot more crowded. But most importantly, carefree kiss-offs like Someday and Last Nite refashioned the left-field sounds of previous generations-the streetwise swagger of The Velvet Underground and Iggy Pop, the wounded romanticism of The Smiths and early Cure-into immediate, dance-floor-ready pop music, portending indie rock’s insurgence into the mainstream

It kicks ass and if you like garage rock and haven't listened to this you are truly missing out on a masterpiece. The Strokes have served up an entertaining, tightly produced album here. It's very cool to hear a band playing stripped down rock and roll these days, especially when popular music & hip hop seems to be moving more and more into the uber-production realm. There's a real earnestness about the songs on this album, and that's an element that's been missing from conventional rock for a while. The problem, if it is a problem, is that the Strokes seem to have made very little effort to transcend their influences
