The Strokes Take Top Spot on NME’s List of Decade’s Best Albums


Considering that the British music rag is largely credited with propelling the Strokes from being just another New York City buzz band to the international superstars that they became, it's not surprising to see Is This It? land at the No. 1 spot on NME's list of the top 50 albums of the decade. Other NYC-area acts to make the list include Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Rapture, Interpol, Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, and the Walkmen. [Guardian UK]
