Gone now are the old times submitted by channbry on July 27, 2020, 3:29pm Serendipitously titled The New Abnormal, this album came out during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown and will likely forever be associated with that time in the minds of many fans. Although the title refers to climate change, a topic explored in a bittersweet way on the track "Eternal Summer," the parallels between both crises add some interesting social context, as does the album cover featuring Basquiat's Charlie Parker-inspired "Bird On Money." Musically, TNA finds the band in a period of reconciliation and exploration, as the songs offer an eclectic mix of their signature interwoven guitars taken in new directions, including the synth-driven ballad "At The Door." Working for the first time with producer Rick Rubin, overall this album sounds fresh and is some of their most radio-friendly music in years, fun but also deeply melancholy, especially the B-side (ironically, "Why Are Sundays So Depressing?" is the most upbeat song on the back half.) There are only nine tracks, but each one is solid and distinct, my personal faves being Adults, Selfless, and Sundays. As bittersweet as many of these songs are, it’s clear the band had fun making them, an encouraging sign for more good things to come from a group now 20 years into making music together.

Not Abnormal, But Technically New submitted by Meginator on August 11, 2021, 5:21pm This is a respectable, straightforward indie rock album with a few hits and decent filler tracks throughout. I didn’t hear anything particularly exceptional, but the Strokes are incredibly consistent and this is a collection of solid, satisfying songs that don’t need to stand out from one another to create a good overall listening experience. The band’s longtime fans will sense a progression and everyone else can just sit back and enjoy.
