Full reviews of the new album are probably still a month or so away but it seems like journalists started receiving their copy of Comedown Machine today. Some early reactions on Twitter (via mateja at The Strokes News)

Strokes album is an emotional rollercoaster. Current mood – sounds half like the new Phoenix album, half like the new Strokes album #strokes
So it seems like this album is very 80s (which is no surprise) but also a lot of fun! Also some people who didn’t like Angles that much seem a lot more positive already. The 80s style will probably continue to divide fans especially those who dislike One Way Trigger but I am more intrigued than ever to hear Comedown Machine.
