    The Strokes, a melodic garage-rock revival / post-punk band, have recorded three albums so far, and their first one, IS THIS IT, is generally considered best, both in terms of critical reviews and commercial sales:

    (1) Is This It (2001)

    http://www.amazon.com/This-Strokes/dp/B0...

    received positive reviews from both mainstream and independent publications, including 4 stars from Rolling Stone, and a 9.1 from Pitchfork Media; it made many critics' top 10 lists, and was named the best album of the year by Entertainment Weekly and TIME. Thus far, it has sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide.

    (2) Room on Fire (2003)

    http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q...

    received good reviews, went gold, and had a few successful singles, including Reptilia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reptilia_(s... ).

    (3) First Impressions of Earth (2006) http://shopping.yahoo.com/search;_ylc=X3...

    was released in January 2006 to mixed reviews and debuted at number four in the US and number one in the UK. In Japan, it went gold within the first week of release. It was also the most downloaded album for two weeks on iTunes. Fraiture claimed that the album was "like a scientific breakthrough." Nevertheless, it received the worst reception, both commercially and critically, of all their three albums.

    I like every song on there, and that is quite a rarity with CDs these days
