THE STROKES Released Their Riff-Crazy Second Album ‘ROOM ON FIRE’ 20 Years Ago

Back in time

29 October 2023

New York’s jingle jangle champs THE STROKES released their
2nd LP ROOM ON FIRE 20 years ago, on 28 October 2003.

NME review: “‘Room On Fire’ is a refining and tinkering with The Strokes sound,
a carefully calibrated attempt not to fuck up too early in the face of untold temptations.
The results are still sleek, sexy and thrilling, with a tantalising promise of even better
to come.”

Score: 4.5/5

Back sleeve

TUTV says: The Strokes jumped into an empty period of guitar rock bands
and scored big time with their jingle jangle firework on their first two LPs.
Riff-crazy from start to finish.
