Anybody have this? It's Hammond's second solo album. It's really good summertime guitar driven pop rock with a John Lennon sound to the vocals.
"In My Room" "The Boss Americana" and "Victory at Montery" all succeed at kicking ass.

I don't like it as much as I like his first one, but it could grow on me. I do like his first one a lot.

So far I may be liking it more. It had to grow on me over a couple of weeks, but now I'm like hooked on it.

I've heard a few songs. I like what I've heard so far. I really wish he would collaborate with Julian on a new Strokes record. The last one wasn't so hot and he can obviously write good songs.

I liked the last Strokes album alright, but I think they would certainly benefit from including Hammond into the songwriting more I tihnk. From what I've heard it seems like Julian writes everything himself.

Yeah, I definitely gotta give it another chance. It took a long time for the Strokes' second and third albums to grow on me, too.

Yeah I've heard the same. They would benefit greatly from Hammond joining in the writing process.

Okay, I officially (OFFICIALLY) like this album better than 'Yours to Keep'. Also I bought this album off of iTunes, and there are awesome live versions of "In Transit" and "Hard to Live in the City" that I like better than their "Yours to Keep" incarnations. The "Hard to Live in the City" live one is particularly better because when the song kicks back in after the short fake ending, instead having the horns from the studio version (which I like, I'm a sucker for horns) instead Hammond jsut shreds and it's awesome.

I have a few songs from the first album that I really dig. Didn't know he had a second one out. I'll check it out.
