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.

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.
