Similar to the latest work from The Strokes, the latest song from Julian Casablancas is good, but not great. On “11th Dimension”, Julian’s voice remains at a steady tempo and never really hooks in the listener. The backing music is good, but nothing that has not been heard before. The chorus is not bad, but still easily forgettable after a few minutes.
Phrazes For The Youngcomes out on October 20th and if the first single reflects the rest of the album, then this should be a good listen for hardcore Strokes fans waiting on new material, but not a necessity for most.
