‘Coolest band on Earth’ to ‘What’s wrong?’

CNN of all places has a great article on the inevitable rise and then fall of The Strokes called The Ups and Downs of Being the Strokes. That is the one thing I hate when a band gets too popular too fast, the inevitable “critical backlash” which can kill a band before they really get a chance to hit their stride for that extremely important second or third album. I still like The Strokes no matter what they say.
Later.
