First Impressions of Earth is the third studio album by American rock band the Strokes. It was released on January 3, 2006 by RCA Records. Three singles were released from the album: "Juicebox", "Heart in a Cage", and "You Only Live Once". The album was recorded over a ten-month period. The Strokes initially set out to record it with Gordon Raphael, the producer of their first two albums.
First Impressions of Earth is The Strokes' third studio album. David Kahne and Gordon Raphael produced the album, released through RCA Records. Interestingly, the album is band’s longest, clocking in at 52 minutes. It is also the first to receive a Parental Advisory Label. Released in 2006, the album is still perhaps the most controversial Strokes record. It introduced a far more aggressive and distorted sound that polarized fans and critics alike.
They were on the covers of Spin and NME; they were on the cover of New York Magazine, accompanied by a massive profile written by Jay fucking McInerney, the author of Bright Lights, Big City.
First Impressions Of Earth. Rock Punk rock Post-punk Alternative rock Indie rock Garage rock Post-rock.
The Strokes making a third album? That wasn’t supposed to happen. First Impressions of Earth is different; it’s ambitious, messy, nearly as long as the first two records combined. Guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr. get to show off, while drummer Fab Moretti provides the forward momentum that makes the Strokes a killer groove band.
lt;small Booklet contains following artwork:
Because fittingly, on ‘First Impressions Of Earth’, The Strokes are on their own. ‘First Impression. was, perhaps wisely, a full nine months in the making compared to the previous record’s rushed two. From the very first line – a glorious, bawled Some people think they’re always right! – it’s immediately clear a weight has lifted.
The only reason First Impressions succumbs to boycott is because it loses all track of method, and when compared to the kept together rock that was Is This It and even the self-plagiarised Room On Fire, the third effort seems to be simply that, and nothing more – a nice try. The New Yorkers are harder to hold onto because of the obstacle they set themselves; four big ‘n’ bouncy singles front the album, each overwrought with Casablanca’s sneer and sleaze.
