- 1. Hard To ExplainSuch a simple video for such a great song. The simplicity suits perfectly the spirit of the band, especially for Is This It. Simple clips, constructing a great video, just as simple structures construct a great Strokes song.
- 2. JuiceboxGreat song, great video. It's got the perfect beginning, with David Cross (aka Arrested Development's Tobias Fünke) in a funny act, not even saying the name of the song right. Just brilliant.
- 3. ReptiliaReptilia is one of the best songs by The Strokes -if not the best. The close-ups for the video are amazing. and suit the song perfectly.
- 4. You Only Live OnceIn terms of videoclips, The Strokes achieved their best with First Impressions of Earth. The video for You Only Live Once shows the band in pure white, getting dirty and drowning just as the band was about to take a break.
- 5. Undercover of DarknessIt kills me to leave 12.51, The End Has No End and Last Nite out, but if I'm honest, I think Undercover of Darkness is a better video. It starts by ripping off their drowning at the end of You Only Live Once (their last video before Angles), Undercover of Darkness is a nice walk through their style.
