Out of the three new songs released by The Strokes, I like Threat Of Joy. It is most reminiscent of their first album, and the vocals have quality of determination that inspires. Number two: Drag Queen has a Joy Division-like bass introduction, and more interesting vocal alterations by Julian Casablancas. And the bronze: precision-to-the-degree-of-electronic-sounding rhythm guitar by Albert Hammond, Jr., a bleeding heart chorus, and response from lead guitarist Nick Valensi The Future Present Past EP, a precursor to album of the year?
To me, this film is about the triumph of royal offspring, and the struggle of their parents. It contains graphic images, sometimes like paintings that could be hung on my walls, such as the princess perched in a rock nest. At end, the three stories unite with a crowning of new queen - the perfect denouement. We're all royal in our own way, and we struggle, whether it be with sex, like the king, with control, similar to the queen, or with powers that be, the way princess does. Whatever problem it is, face it with love. Prediction: look for Bebe Cave to star in more fine films. See this film at Zoetropolis if you can - they've an inviting atmosphere and great club opportunity.
