Yeah, that's a solid track.

It's alright - it has me excited enough for El Pintor, but as a teaser/preview for the new album (it seems the world "single" is seldom used these days), I much prefer Lights for the last album. I really enjoyed their self-titled.

It's fairly decent, good enough for me to give the album a shot when it comes out.

I have revisited Our Love To Admire the other day and it wasn't half as bad as I remember it to be. "Unfairly maligned" would be the term. Half of it is actually pretty good. Pioneer to the Falls is a great opener, Pace is the Trick is an amazing ballad, while Mind Over Time is one of those classic examples where a bonus track trumps most of the record. It has a searing, building intensity to it sorely lacking on most of their post-TOTBL output.

In fact, I rank it the same as Antics, which hasn't really aged well in my mind. A really disjointed record, sucking out all the rich atmosphere their debut had.

The fourth one is just an excruciatingly dull effort. I can't think of a 10-song album that feels this long. Lights is one of their best songs though. I really hope this one will be an improvement. I like the lead single, but I feel they can do much better. In any case, this band suffers from the most severe kind of debut album complex.

Yeah that's always been one of my favorite Interpol tracks. And I also agree Antics is overrated. The first half has great tracks but it tails off towards the end and it isn't as cohesive as the debut.

Antics is easily better for me than the next two. The s/t is a little on the boring side and OLTA is just a mixed bag.

TOTBL has recently become one of my favorite albums, so no, Antics definitely is nowhere near that level, but it's a solid entry into that post-punk revival of the mid-2000s.

TOTBL outtakes and b-sides are also better than most of what came afterwards. Specialist is in my top 5. Song Seven is a great track as well.

For an album that is essentially a best-of of all of the songs they made since their formation in 1998, it sounds amazingly cohesive.

Yeah, I definitely enjoyed my completist Interpol phase when I listened through all their early EPs.

Our Love to Admire really does feel like a mixed bag. For me, it's the Interpol-by-numbers tracks such as Scale and All Fired Up that detract from it.

I adore the final track on the self-titled, The Undoing.

I've only listened to the first two. Excited for this one after All the Rage Back Home.
