About this deal

The vinyl itself is of high quality, providing a low noise floor and ensuring minimal surface noise throughout the record. My copy matches this listing exactly (no Ⓤ or ☆ in runout) except the labels have fine text beneath the Side A and Side B, which match the photos of this pressing: https://www. When he saw the results — "I knew it was the perfect shot - simple, straightforward, graphic and just so sexy. Among the many highlights are Last Nite with its insistent motown backbeat and choppy johnny thunders-like guitar solo, Barely Legal, sounding like 1980s-era Cure fronted by a saucy Iggy Pop, and the jangly Someday with its hairshirt of vulnerability from a bad break-up.

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. 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. 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.While frontman Julian Casablancas (son of elite models founder john) drawls like Lou Reed through a busted intercom, guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr do Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd proud as their sinewy chords intertwine to great effect on the angular The Modern Age and equally neurotic Alone, Together. First and foremost, let's talk about the packaging and presentation of this limited edition release.

With a dedicated fan base worldwide, The Strokes remain influential figures in alternative rock music. 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.Additionally, the album's original cover photo was replaced by a less sexually explicit artwork for the US market. The Strokes have an innate ability to create infectious melodies that stick with you long after the needle lifts off the record. German retailer JPC are listing a limited edition white vinyl pressing of The Strokes‘ debut Is This It, to be released next month.

One, it is the ONLY pressing that has the same tracklist as the CD version that came out in 2001, which is how I got to know and fell in love with this album.is one of the most exciting and energetic debut albums to spring from New York’s long dormant club scene.
