I honestly didn't have a problem with it. It was a solo album. If you want The Strokes, then wait for the next Strokes album. You can't expect him to sound exactly like the band he comes from, it destroys the whole point of making a solo effort. Which is why Rob Thomas sucks.
haha, im not critisizing his choice of music to be a part of. It just seems strange that a guy who fronted the Strokes would produce something New Wave.

I'll use the Daryl Polumbo reference again, hardcore to dance...pretty far out there.

He referes to himself by this name in songs, as well as Travid.
Well that's just the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

Taken from the song "Clothes Off"

...Oh I'm sorry, my name is Travee and I'm pretty much a big deal
Oh, you've never heard of me
That sounds absurd to me...

I knew he did it at least once, but i almost started laughing right now because of the context of that quote hahaha

I want to know whats considered a big hit then. Just because a band has a good sized fan base and they buy the song on I-tunes when it first comes out to push it to something like the #59 most downloaded song for a couple days doesn't make it a big hit. In my opinion in order for a song to be considered a "hit" it has to get constant airplay on mainstream radio stations which cookie jar didn't. By the way im a GCH fan so im not trying to hate on them I just don't think the song was a hit at all.

Edit: The song peaked at #59 on Billboards hot 100 and #55 on Billboards pop charts and it didn't stay for long. I would not call that a hit by any means.
