    "America Give Up" is not perfect but for a debut album it's really great ! My favorites tracks are "Beach Sluts" and "Black Lagoon". They're also really good live ! A band to keep an eye on !

    America Give Up is a fantastically-promising debut album full of charm and potential. So, until the Strokes release their next masterpiece or pack it in altogether, enjoy this bunch of upbeat, tousle-haired tunes.

    This is mainly just sunny, disintegrated, low-stakes rock music. [Mar 2012, p.84]

    America Give Up proves them to be far more exciting than a mere second generation rip-off.
