The time was ripe for the scratchy, post-punk influenced guitars and throwback basslines of the Strokes, together with their tousled hair and don't-care attitude. Mine was added to my collection over 6 years ago when I first started really using discogs to keep track of my collection.

Following the success of their earlier singles, the Strokes have again found success with songs such as Hard to Explain and Barely Legal. I'm surprised at how long it's taken them to do a pressing with both When It Started and New York City Cops but glad to finally own one.The guitars have a satisfying crunch, the drums punch through with intensity, and Julian Casablancas' iconic vocals take center stage in a way that feels raw and unfiltered. Release Date: 12th January Thank you Strokes for saving us from Nu Metal and bland Post-Britpop indie.

Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. This version doesn't have "When It Started" like the VMP pressing, but that is the weakest song on the album IMO.
