The Strokes: First Impressions of Earth

It's the first non-Hip-Hop album that I'm playing in 2006. Memorable cuts include "You Only Live Once", "On The Other Side", "Killing Lies", and my favorite of them all "Razorblade". I haven't listened through a whole rock album since Queens Of The Stone Age's Lullabies To Paralyze but First Impressions got so many enjoyable flurries on it you can't help but stay tuned in.
