Unlike one of their songs, no one wanted The Strokes sound to come to an abrupt stop. Two long years after the release of Is This It, came their second L.P. Room On Fire. The album featured ‘Reptilia’, a scientific term for the part of the brain we share with reptiles. The song seems to be about a long night that’s not going so well. “The room is on fire as she’s fixing her hair.” The song evidently gave the album its name and tempo. Have a great week.
