JESUS CHRIST AN AMAZING SOOOOOONG!! So different from previos works but stil brilliant and smooth! Genius, but still just a little bit sad that the song is made for a product, instead of just HIM

im a bid saddened that i am now more excited for a second solo album than a strokes album

5 Stephanie September 7, 2011 at 10:44 am

I dont know if Im the only one who thinks this, but this could be a Strokes song. Anyway, its pretty good.

@Stephanie, I agree. My husband said the same thing after hearing only the preview. I think this song also fits Julian’s solo style- I’m just happy about all this in general 🙂 I’m pretty sure we’ll get another solo album, in addition to Strokes V, within the next few years.

Good the song, but Decibel really stinks

Lol, have you guys read the commentary on Youtube? Apparently some ladies are having trouble with ovaries exploding and whatnot.
Anyway, does anyone know whether Julian/Azzaro will release the full-length version of the song? It sounds brilliant and the machine-gun style contradicting lyrics are classic Jules. And it’s great to see him wide-eyed and passionate again… Even if he is getting paid what could only be an obscene amount of cash.
Great song.

Am I the only one that doesn’t really like it? Why the shouting? Where’s the croon? Ah well.

now THAT was an ad. The thing was shot brilliantly. Now as for the song…..good god its getting excited for another song as good as Reptilia of 12:51 on their new album.

11 L-G September 7, 2011 at 12:40 pm

I love him.

Love this song, can’t wait to receive the full track! And, the commercial is not bad at all, it is edited and filmed quite well. This song has really got me going for a new JC solo album!

Oh my God that was so good. Oh my God.

14 heather September 7, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Ooh, I like this! I love that is shows an entirely different side to his voice, but what is it with all of the teases? I want the WHOLE SONG already! lol

15 wolfman September 7, 2011 at 2:23 pm

i want to smell like him.

16 Jk September 7, 2011 at 5:47 pm

Mary shea,
I think you are. I mean if u hate the shouting/ screaming, do u like reptilia?

17 jacob September 7, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Here are the lyrics for the snippet of the song if anyone is interested….

i see
i just wont leave it
i just dont beleive in it
i just wont take it
i just wont agree with it
i just dont see it
i just wont regret that thing
i wont be sorry
i wont be forgettin it
i wont be askin’ but
i wont be forgivin’
i wont be takin’
and i wont be givin’ in
i wont be…

18 elle September 7, 2011 at 10:26 pm

ahhhh looking forward to this in full. 😀

19 H September 8, 2011 at 1:52 am

Wish they’d give us the full song already. C’mon we need something new to listen to.

20 Houston September 8, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Please make more songs like this and RED LIGHT. And get a producer for the new album!

21 wolfman September 9, 2011 at 12:45 am

ok, i’ve definitely watched this at least a good 50 times by now.

22 a lot September 9, 2011 at 7:06 am

Please Julian make solo album number 2 soon!!!!!

23 Bobby September 9, 2011 at 9:00 am

@wolfman- Me too, its so good!!

24 pbandj September 9, 2011 at 11:01 am

JULES DOES NOT AGE! I guess heavy drinking and smoking work for some people. I think he looks better here than he did in the Reptilia video!

25 s September 9, 2011 at 5:46 pm

so good

26 SuperFan September 10, 2011 at 9:28 am

@pbandj, I agree. He looks fantastic! He really is sensational.
