Scans: ‘NME’ Reviews The Strokes’ Madison Square Garden Show (April 1, 2011)

by Eric Van Dril · 9 comments

“[Is This It] is a flying start but The Strokes almost instantly hit hyper-speed by unleashing a dizzying 30-minute blitz of non-stop classics which emphatically atones for their years of inactivity. A surging ‘Reptilia’ provides the evening’s first moment of euphoria… while ‘Hard To Explain’ is played with such a taut, urgent edge it feels as if the band have been as eager to play these songs again as we’ve been to hear them.

“”When I was writing that in my bedroom, I never thought in a thousand years we’d be playing that shit right here at MSG,” admits an obviously humbled Casablancas.”

Well said, NME. Thank you for the scans, ShesFixing.
