    It’s been a little bit more than a decade since The Strokes released their sophomore effort entitled Room On Fire. RCA’s resident art director Brett Kilroe made a very un-2003 choice with Prisma. Especially since a viable digital copy wasn’t readily available at the time. (It is possible that Kilroe used Dieter Steffmann’s freeware revival, as it debuted in 2003.) The front cover is based around a painting called WarGame by Peter Phillips (done in 1961).
