Plagiarized, or not, the fact that this is what rock music has come to [sounding like a Latin pop band] makes me want to weep.

LOL I knew that Maná song but I didn't realize it until a friend of mine told me she thought the songs sounded alike... for me it stills sounds more like Brazilian tecnobrega, things like Banda Uó (with the differente that they are self-parodic and the Strokes aren't ). I hope the single has less synthesizers. Even the song they recorded with Ke$ha was more Strokes than this one...

I like the new song! Didn't really listen to their last album, but I'm looking forward to this one. The Strokes are inspired by a lot of bands and I don't think that means they're completely unoriginal... they take a fews bits here and there from other artists (ex: Tom Petty), put a modern twist to whatever they're borrowing and keep their great distinctive sound.

Preview of All The Time. Gotta say I felt relieved. Sounds really nice.

It's probably the only Strokes-esque song of the album, like UCOD in Angles, but I loved it. The beginning reminded me of Modern Age.

When I watched it I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't something "new", but at the same time I'm happy to see all these images of them together, and happy it's not a bad video!

I love the album too.

And while I like the singles. I didn't love them. I enjoyed the rest of the album even more.
