The Strokes : Comedown Machine
The Strokes' fifth album and follow up to 2011's Angels will be out in March on RCA. The first official single is All the Time, which will be released on February 19. One Way Trigger, which was the first track released from the album, will also appear. Listen to All the Time below, courtesy of Soundcloud. UK music magazine Q has released an early review, giving the album 4 out of 5. The review ends with "It’s impossible to know if The Strokes are on safe ground as a band – at the time of going to press they were insisting no interviews or new photos would accompany their latest record – but perhaps shutting themselves off from the world has done them good. Comedown Machine is their best album since they hit perfection with their debut. You’d like to think they’re entering a new lease of life as a band. This being The Strokes, it could just as well be their bittersweet send-off." Note that Q also gave the previous Strokes album, Angels, 4 out of 5 as well. And now they're calling that album a disappointment. We've added the official video for "All the time" below.

    The tracklist includes so far the singles “One Way Trigger” and “All the Time”

    • “One Way Trigger” isn’t a single, it was just an advance track.

      • Avatar of Frost

        A single is “a type of release” that “can be released [...] to the public in a variety of different formats” and “a song that is released separately from an album, but it usually appears on an album”. Singles “are released separately for promotional uses such as commercial radio airplay”. Therefore, “One Way Trigger”, Sir, is definitely a single.

  2. Yes Yes Yes !!! at last

    • Do you know what the password is to the download?

    let’s hope this album has more rock numbers than the last – though judging from this seems unlikely – shame – I like Casablancas for pop and the Strokes for rock… anyway, new tunes are always welcome so who am I to complain :)

  4. Avatar of Justin

    I can’t wait for this!

  5. I’d prefer if they went to the old Strokes sound because they know they can easily make another classic if they wanted to, but I’m also very excited for a new sound. I guess the Strokes are the only band in history that can do no wrong with me, MINUS You’re So Right

    @Television

    man it’s EXACTLY the same with me! what were they thinking when they made You’re so right!?!?!
    but… i still.. ahn.. like it cxause its strokes but you know… its so bad :(

  7. Just listened to ‘Angles’ again in anticipation of the new album and must admit it’s held up better than I originally thought on first listen. Definitely eccentric and not for everyone but unique and engaging all the same. Based on the NME preview it sounds like ‘Comedown Machine’ will be in the same ballpark. Looking forward to the leak!

    • Avatar of feelgoodlost [Moderator]

      I think whats funny about this track by track review is that it seems like the writer is trying to wiggle around admiting that he disliked it.

      I don’t have high hopes for the release but it will unadoubtly get high praise because its the Strokes.

  8. Avatar of Colton Musselman

    their sing;e, “All The Time’ was released today.

  9. Avatar of Guilherme Araujo

    yesterday man

  10. Avatar of Alx

    Really looking forward to this album. ‘All The Time’ was pretty classic Strokes’ tune but the rest of the album its said to be very 80s. ‘One Way Trigger’ was ver interesting, very Casablancas.
    Hoping for some TV show performances too.

  11. Avatar of Alx

    An ”All The Time’ 7″ vinyl single will be backed with a song called ‘Fast Animals’, and it will be released on April 1st.
    Acording to amazon’s japanese deluxe edition, it will also be the bonus track to ‘Comedown Machine’.
    http://store.roughtraderecords.com/Store/TheStrokesAllTheTime.html
    http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00B51BC96
    As there is a song in the tracklist called ‘Slow Animals’, most probably the new song will be an alternate or demo version.

  13. I cannot wait for this…absolute no news of a leak?!

  14. The medias have received the album today. So it will certainly leak overnight…
    Oh yeah, and they say it is an amazing record…

    • I hope so, after these reviews I can’t wait!

    • You’re a damn lie.

      • Why should I lie? The reviews are coming in. If you have a look on twitter, you’ll find them. But still, no leak yet..

        • Avatar of Frost

          There have been several reviews for weeks now. NME published a track-by-track review a month ago. Q Magazine published its review like two weeks ago.

          • Yes, there were 2 reviews already out, but since yesterday, a lot of newspapers, magazines, received their copies. you can google it, you’ll see it. No need to insult someone for that.

        • “So it will certainly leak overnight”..

          • Yes Shawn, normally , once an album is out, it doesn’t take more than a few hours before it’s leaked. however, if digital watermarked files are sent, it won’t leak.

    • Avatar of patrick oswald

      amazing record maybe, but they did nt enjoy making it one bit. very ad.

      • Where are you getting this from ? Reviews are saying it sounds like they had a lot of fun making this record. Angles however, they didn’t enjoy making.

  15. Avatar of Jacob

    I would think at some point soon we will be getting news of the leak. Who knows, either way… I’m so excited for this album!!!

  16. Avatar of John

    This album consumes my mind every waking moment. Please someone make my dreams a reality and leak this album.

  31. The album has leaked and i’m not talking about the soundcloud stream. (i’m talking about a private torrent tracker)

  32. It was leaked less than an hour ago and IT’S FUCKING AWESOME!!!

  33. Avatar of Alx

    exystance!

  34. This shit >>>> Angles

  35. is the exystence one a stream rip?

  36. thr worst strokes album

    • It’s not their worst but it’s just an average decent album. I would rate is at 64/100. Last three albums have been so disappointing.

  37. I love the new album. Just finished streaming it off pitchfork http://pitchfork.com/advance/48-comedown-machine/

    loved every minute of it

  38. Avatar of Roger

    Great album

  39. Oddly enough, the song I like most is the last one which sounds nothing like them.

  40. so deep so good album their best

  41. Avatar of Alx

    I absolutely loved the album. I’m hooked. This is a nice surprise.

  42. Avatar of Voyager

    So different… amazing!

  43. Avatar of andrew james

    Im sure critics are gonna bash all over this but its a hell of a lot better than Angles.
