Albert Hammond, Jr. - Everyone Gets A Star

It sounds like The Strokes. C'mon, did you expect anything else? Albert Hammond, Jr's solo single is everything you might imagine it to be, except that it's rather good. His voice comes across not like Julian Casablancas' rock n roll scream, but more like Willy Mason - deep and gentle.

Otherwise it's business as usual with its post-punk meanderings and highly strung guitars with the unexpected bonus of the chorus thrashing about a bit. In my mind, at least, it's better than most of the songs from the last Strokes album. Certainly, the proposition of his solo album is now more eagerly awaited than previously.

I'm not exactly sure where you can buy this single, a search threw up nothing at Amazon, iTunes or 101cd... so... best go to his Myspace page if you want to hear it!
