The Strokes – Room On Fire (Limited Edition)
The Strokes are an American rock band from New York City. Formed in 1998, the band is composed of singer Julian Casablancas, guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr., bassist Nikolai Fraiture, and drummer Fabrizio Moretti. The Strokes have been said to be, “as influential to their era as the Velvet Underground or the Ramones were to theirs,” by Lizzie Goodman in her book on the New York City music scene and has heavily influenced bands like The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, and Franz Ferdinand. Room on Fire is their second studio album, released on October 28, 2003. The album features the return of producer Gordon Raphael from Is This It and consists of a slightly smoother sound than its predecessor; i.e. the bass guitar is less present except for several select moments when it becomes the focal point of the song. Its title is drawn from a lyric in “Reptilia”: “The room is on fire as she’s fixing her hair.”
This is a limited edition flame-colored vinyl that also includes download codes for the digital version.
