About this deal

But years on, the casual objectification and sexual provocation of the image speaks volumes about the music and fashion scenes at the time, and just how much they have changed. Remember that your satisfaction is our priority, and we are here to help you at every step of the way. Three singles were released from the album: ‘Hard to Explain’/’New York City Cops’, ‘Last Nite’, and ‘Someday’.

Is This It" remains a modern classic, and hearing it on vinyl adds a whole new dimension to the listening experience. All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. This version doesn't have "When It Started" like the VMP pressing, but that is the weakest song on the album IMO. The record is a heavy version 150-180 grams I guess, and the front cover has a sticker with black background and "The Strokes" in white letters and "Is This It" in red.The US CD version of the album replaced "New York City Cops" with a newly recorded song, "When It Started", while the vinyl edition retained the original track list. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Three singles were released from the album: 'Hard to Explain'/'New York City Cops', 'Last Nite', and 'Someday'. Mine was added to my collection over 6 years ago when I first started really using discogs to keep track of my collection. Release Date: 12th January Thank you Strokes for saving us from Nu Metal and bland Post-Britpop indie.

Additionally, the album's original cover photo was replaced by a less sexually explicit artwork for the US market. The album which changed modern rock music back in 2001; you can blame them for skinny jeans but ten years on you can't argue with the likes of 'Last Nite' or 'Hard To Explain'. With a dedicated fan base worldwide, The Strokes remain influential figures in alternative rock music.The model (his girlfriend at the time) agreed to pose impromptu in the black leather glove after emerging one morning from the shower. This was the first vinyl I ever bought alongside Room on Fire at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame during a trip in 2010. SUCH a great album I think the "Haves" are severely bloated because they unfortunately made the reissue matrix number so similar. Now, in this limited edition vinyl release, listeners have the opportunity to experience the magic of the album in its purest form.

With their catchy melodies, raw energy, and stylish image, The Strokes became a leading force in the indie rock scene of the early 2000s.

When he saw the results — "I knew it was the perfect shot - simple, straightforward, graphic and just so sexy.

German retailer JPC are listing a limited edition white vinyl pressing of The Strokes‘ debut Is This It, to be released next month. My only complaints are the package feels like it's missing a lyric sheet and I'm not too keen on the vinyl splatter, would've preferred a teal-ish colour to match the cover art. Their music draws influences from classic rock bands like The Velvet Underground and Television while adding their own modern twist.

The time was ripe for the scratchy, post-punk influenced guitars and throwback basslines of the Strokes, together with their tousled hair and don't-care attitude. We carry a broad range of CDs and vinyl (7”/12” singles and LPs) and specialise in indie, alternative, rock, punk, metal plus a few other genres. The band consists of lead vocalist Julian Casablancas, guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr. Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. Per an interview in 2001/2002 with Julian Casablancas (I read it back then and wish I could find it now), about 5,000 copies were pressed before 9/11 with the song "New York City Cops.

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". The Strokes’ dynamic 2001 debut 'Is This It' includes hard-to-resist faves like 'Last Nite' and 'Someday' which helped the growly Julian Casablancas and co. 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.
