The Strokes initially set out to record it with Gordon Raphael, the producer of their first two albums.
First Impressions of Earth is The Strokes' third studio album. David Kahne and Gordon Raphael produced the album, released through RCA Records. Interestingly, the album is band’s longest, clocking in at 52 minutes. It is also the first to receive a Parental Advisory Label. Released in 2006, the album is still perhaps the most controversial Strokes record. It introduced a far more aggressive and distorted sound that polarized fans and critics alike. Three singles bolstered First Impressions. The album itself garnered mildly positive feedback. Some feedback was strongly negative ( weakest album yet), while some critics were more favorable ( the first pretty good album of the year ). First Impressions of Earth Q&A.
When Is This It landed in 2001, prognosticators claimed the Strokes would break big, reassert New York's post-punk primacy, and save rock and roll. So one can hardly blame them for cutting their losses and going for broke on their boorishly titled third album, First Impressions of Earth. Here, the Strokes simultaneously settle into diminished expectations (delaying an album until just after Christmas not screening a movie for film critics) and wildly ratchet up their sound, trying new things, getting weirder, but remaining true to the core of their sound. Though always inhumanly taut, the band has grown even tighter, and now plays with a precision that, while coldly machinelike at times, is impressive more often than not.

In Japan it went gold within the first week of release. Fraiture claimed that the album was "like a scientific breakthrough". In January 2006, the band then made their second appearance on Saturday Night Live playing "Juicebox" and "You Only Live Once".

The only reason First Impressions succumbs to boycott is because it loses all track of method, and when compared to the kept together rock that was Is This It and even the self-plagiarised Room On Fire, the third effort seems to be simply that, and nothing more – a nice try. The New Yorkers are harder to hold onto because of the obstacle they set themselves; four big ‘n’ bouncy singles front the album, each overwrought with Casablanca’s sneer and sleaze. From then on, the album gets dinkier. The outrageous momentum doesn’t disappear one bit, but the sleaze becomes more of a cut-and-paste job. Casablancas’ voice begins to replicate the dirty amplifier distortion yet more, and so he can tremble away Fear Of Sleep in a way that makes it an essential to hear out, despite all its revolving, bare-bone instrumentation (and continuously poor drumming).
Because fittingly, on ‘First Impressions Of Earth’, The Strokes are on their own. ‘First Impression. was, perhaps wisely, a full nine months in the making compared to the previous record’s rushed two. From the very first line – a glorious, bawled Some people think they’re always right! – it’s immediately clear a weight has lifted. Possibly the greatest Strokes song to date, ‘You Only Live Once’ finds Julian Casablancas promising a thousand ways to please your man, punctuating each line with an uh-huh or uh-oh and generally sounding on top of his game
They were on the covers of Spin and NME; they were on the cover of New York Magazine, accompanied by a massive profile written by Jay fucking McInerney, the author of Bright Lights, Big City. It wasn’t easy to get an interview with the Strokes in 2006, because in 2006, the Strokes were an event
Indeed, depression is a big theme on First Impressions of Earth; while jaded and bruised lyrical territory is nothing new for the Strokes, now they sound boring instead of just bored with everything around them. On "Ask Me Anything," an otherwise pretty ballad, Casablancas repeats "I've got nothing to say" so often that the listener has no choice but to believe him. There are a few bright moments: "Ize of the World" and "Razorblade" channel the bite of the band's older work without rehashing it entirely.
