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... it's flat-out awesome garage-indie rock that you've probably heard a ton of times by now.

This week, we're going to delve into the follow-up sophomore release that is equally good (or better, depending on your ears), despite the incredible amount of pressure they endured to deliver. It'd be great if you haven't actually heard this LP before, but hopefully you'll carve out an hour to listen to it regardless.
