"The Looks" is the debut album by MSTRKRFT, released on July 18, 2006. All songs were written by Jesse F. Keeler and Al-P.

History

In the 15-21 June 2006 edition of "The Stranger", Keeler explains the origin of the album's title: "My girlfriend and I were watching American Idol, and judge Randy critiqued this one girl as having 'the looks' but not the talent. So we laughed at this intangible thing 'the looks' that can be good or bad, and later it became [our] album title. Because if you think about it, it doesn't mean anything, especially in terms of our album."

The earliest version of the track "Paris" was composed on a laptop, on a plane taking Keeler and Al-P back home after a trip in Paris, France. "Easy Love" and "Paris" were made available on the band's MySpace account before the album's release.
