Very excited. In the meantime, why the current backlash against them? I no comprende...
But I have noticed that the new album is a crushing disappointment.
I haven't listened yet. I might wait until I'm in an Interpol mood. I think Mark Beaumont's comments were a little uncalled for though...and there has been a bit of a backlash on here too.
somewhere around Antics?
Antics - 8/10
Our Love - 7/10
TOTBL - 7.5/10
Antics - 6/10
Our love - can't tell you yet as I actually wait for the album to be in the shops.
But that's just me...
i'm just impatient and have nothing to do at the moment.
a lot of the early leaks are a couple of interpol songs... then the killers album, which unless interpol covered bones is not what we want to here... either way it would be pretty shit.
I found it in a zip file on Mininova.org - just search interpol, it's got about 600 seeders so downloads quickly. Although I haven't listened yet, I assume it is the actual cd.
is definitely out there now, not the Killers relabelled version. And very good it is too, I'd say TOTBL - 9 Antics - 8 Love - 8/8.5. It's a bit of a bad copy though
Pioneers, as everyone knows, is up there with the best things they've ever done, but there's at least three or four other tracks that are as good, and the rest aren't far behind...
Mammoth is the most aptly-named song ever, it builds to a massive, oppressive finish, his voice is fucking intense (and it makes great use of swearing). I think it's may favourite Interpol song.
But the more I listen the more it grows on me.Also thank god my copy is good quality I hate leaks with bad sound.
So far 8/10
the new album to be utterly, painful in places. Interpol by numbers, which to be fair, I wasn't really shocked by considering Antics was also by the book. I dunno, I doubt I'd give it above a 6?
But then I detested Antics when it came out then sorta half came round to earlier this year so maybe it'll take 2 years to slightly grow on me.
can a band be doing 'their-own-style by numbers' on their second album? I don't get people who are critical of bands sounding too much like their previous albums when a new release comes out. That's what they sound like, otherwise they wouldn't be that band. What would you have wanted Antics to sound like, as a followup?
And Antics was a huge departure from TOTBL, I thought.
is SO SO DIFFERENT isn't it!
it was just the same ol thing. Nothing really caught me by surprise the same way the TOTBL did. I dunno, I know a lot of people like Antics but they don't love it, you know. Huge departure though? Okay, agree to disagree I guess.
I just gave it a listen. The first and last songs were good, but apart from that nothing stood out.
Antics was a grower in fairness.
I hated it on the first three listens, then it started burrowing itself into my brain...
