Strokes' New Album 'Angles' is Best Since Their Debut

Rolling Stone's David Fricke says the band's fourth album was worth the wait


David Fricke has reviewed the Strokes' highly anticipated new album Angles – and in a four-star review, he says the record was worth the wait. 

According to Fricke, Angles is the Strokes' first step away from the sound of their instant-classic debut. Instead of the rigid purity of Is This It, the new album nods to the more expansive sound of the Velvet Underground's 1970 record Loaded.
