  • The Strokes decided to experiment with various production techniques, and recorded the rest of the album's material with award-winning engineer Gus Oberg at a converted farmhouse near Albert Hammond Jr.'s Port Jervis home in Upstate New York.
  • It is their first album since the release of 'First Impressions of Earth' in 2006, their longest gap to date between two consecutive studio albums.
  • Media response to Angles was generally favorable; aggregating website Metacritic reports a normalized rating of 70%, based on 20 critical reviews.
  • In his four-star review, David Fricke of Rolling Stone explained that the record was "worth the wait", and summed it up as "the first step away from the sound of their instant-classic debut. Instead of the rigid purity of 'Is This It,' the new album nods to the more expansive sound of The Velvet Underground's 1970 record, Loaded." (Source)
