Pharrell Williams & the Strokes?? Say It Ain't So.

The grapevine is a-rustling and the message boards are lighting up, and the general consensus seems to be a collective and disgusted "ugh". That ugh is a result of the news that Pharrell Williams has been jonesing for the role of producer on the Strokes' fourth album. Not sure whether that will come to be or not, but I'm hoping for the latter. I don't think any N.E.R.D. or Pharrell material has ever really been that strong. To be honest, William's collab with JT on his first solo album is really the only truly appreciable thing that comes to mind (for me). While I do think that the Strokes need some fresh blood to take things in a different direction, I'm not so sure that Pharrell is the way to do it.
