Album of the Week: The Strokes ~ Room On Fire

Rich kids from New York aren't supposed to actually become one of the most recognized bunch of musicians to define a turn of the century sound, right?

The Strokes' debut Is This It? not only drew critical acclaim and appears at the top of a bunch of "best of the decade" lists for the oughts, but it's flat out awesome garage independent rock that you've probably heard a ton of times by now.
