Rolling Stone (10/30/03, p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[One] of the best things about ROOM ON FIRE is that...the Strokes have resisted the temptation to hit the brakes, grow up and screw around with a sound that doesn't need fixing....This record was built for thrills and speed."

Spin (12/03, pp.121-2) - "...The gambit pays off: ROOM ON FIRE is the rare album you could imagine rocking college radio and storming Clear Channel's barricades..." - Grade: A-

Entertainment Weekly (10/31/03, pp.71-72) - "...There's still something undeniably appealing about the Strokes. They're raw and corrosive, yet surprisingly intimate..." - Rating: B

Q (11/03, p.102) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Everything a second album needs to be, it's like IS THIS IT but more emotional, more colourful, slightly better..."

Uncut (11/03, p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Once again 11 concise, usually thrilling songs filled with bewilderment, romance and a sense of climactic payback..."

CMJ (11/17/03, p.8) - "...[Repaints] its predecessor as a promising first release, with potential to grow into something truly formidable....[the opening track] is arguably the Strokes' finest moment to date..."

Mojo (Publisher) (11/03, p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This record is good. Thirty-three minutes and 13 seconds of bruised pop music. Tough, intense, no slack..."
