"Narc" is my favourite Interpol song.

That is a great, great song. Most of Antics is high quality, although it really lacks the brilliant peaks and overarching atmosphere of Turn On The Bright Lights.

Vomit is not the best song on Father, Son, Holy Ghost; Alex is.

It's actually Forgiveness.

Alex, Vomit, Just A Song and Forgiveness are all brilliant.

The rest is good/decent but doesn't really excite me much.

One of my favourites as well. I like the fourth song on that album a bit more though.

Narc is the best song on Antics, but Untitled definitely ranks as my favourite Interpol song.

That's probably mine as well, but I will say that "Lights" is a close second.

You guys should find the track Mind Over Time. I think it was a bonus on Our Love to Admire. One of Interpol's best and a great cold weather song

(Leif Erikson and The New are still my favs though)

It's doesn't have that broken-yet-determined intensity of My My, Hey Hey. Someday is cheesy garbage with awful production, and then there's the random On Broadway cover...lol...well, it's fun. Most significantly of all is the fact that nothing really sticks with me except for RITFW and Wrecking Ball. And Eldorado is good, but it's got nothing on other slow-burners like Cortez The Killer.

Maybe it'll grow on me over time. For now it's probably my least favorite highly lauded NY album. Which actually doesn't say much against it since I love most every album of his that I've heard.
Go to hell.

Crime In The City FTW.

And Hanging On A Limb and Ways of Love are both beautiful.

I find Massive Attack's Protection to be extremely overrated. It starts so well, the title track is one of their best songs, I love the beat in Weather Storm, and tracks like Karmacoma and Eurochild are solid, but overall I find it really quite boring. Closing it with a horrible cover of Light My Fire doesn't help.

I will go so far as to say that of the four Massive Attack albums I've heard (100th Window is the only one I don't have, and the reviews for it are resoundingly mediocre) it's my least favourite.

Mezzanine
*daylight*
Blue Lines
Heligoland (very underrated)
Protection

The main thing that sticks with me about Protection is that the second side mirrors the first side (same guest vocalist, similar style). Beck did much the same thing on Odelay. Sides matter when you're buying cassettes.

And the other thing is that half the songs (well ok, one or two) were reworked for Tricky's first album. I do really like 'Three' though.

Mezzanine is their turning point.

D'Yer Mak'er and Reckoner are similar as in they both bore the heck out of me but sit in otherwise brilliant albums.
