2000's Jams (+5): The Strokes “Ask Me Anything” (2006)

The Strokes possibly invented the thing where on a band's third album they depart from their sound somewhere around Track 5 or 6, taking a quick break, displaying their more somber and pensive areas. We've noticed No Age trying out a similar tactic in 2010 ("Common Heat") and also Grass Is Green in 2012 ("Somebody's Something") albeit these were probably coincidences. Third-album syndrome brings out these kindsa vibes...
