Okay, so we didn't exactly fall in love with the Strokes' first comeback track, "One Way Trigger" (read SPIN's Impulsive Reviews of the song), and the rampant comparisons to A-Ha's "Take on Me" were tough to ignore. But folks looking for a more familiar version of the indie rock torchbearers should be pleased enough with new one "All the Time," which marks a return to Julian Casablancas' plaintive vocals and the lo-fi garage grit that helped make the band's name. The track is a bit muddy to be sure, but this bodes better for the forthcoming fifth album, Comedown Machine, which is due March 26 via RCA. Stream "All the Time" below.
