Newbury Comics with YET another! They’re just rifling off some gems as of late and this one doesn’t stop short of proving that fact!

Is This It is The Strokes’ debut studio release. Achieving ‘platinum’ status throughout many markets, this album jumped the band into the limelight with a haste that not too many bands can garner on their first stab at things. Today, we know many of these songs even if we don’t know who the band is. The music has resonated so well that your subconscious is well aware, even if you aren’t.

If this one hasn’t made it into your collection yet, here’s a beautifully presented reason to change that!



“What’s refreshing to me about the Strokes is that, in a musical climate where even the dirtiest garage bands can create the illusion of million-dollar studio techniques through sound filters on mom’s Packard-Bell, the Strokes prefer to rock in the classic vein: no laser sounds, no ethereal reverb, no pre-programmed Aphex beats. Their influences are so firmly rooted in the post-punk tradition that it’s as if the last two decades had never occurred.” – Ryan Schreiber of Pitchfork
