A little harsh, yes. But deservedly so. I'm incredibly disappointed. I expected so much more. Maybe it will grow. Probably not, I haven't listened to an album in a while where I outright disliked it. There are a small handful of really good track on here, but the rest is just dreck. And the problem isn't only that it sound like Antics. It sounds like Antics, without the quality songwriting (and they were never even that great in that department to begin with).

If it makes you feel any better, Lance, I gave TOTBL another listen, and I like it quite a bit now.

interpol

for once, i am staying away from a leak until the album comes out.

to be honest, i outright disliked antics when it first came out. months later, i gave it another listen and absolutely fell in love with pretty much every song on there. it's probably one of my top ten favourite cd's now.

i've heard scale ( ), all fired up ( ) and rest my chemistry (meh). in addition to the heinrich maneuver, i've also heard pioneer to the falls and mammoth (both excellent) at their live shows.

i'm saving myself for the rest.

i think Mammoth may be one of, if not the best song this band has ever written.

My Mac bit the dust this weekend and I'm working on getting it fixed, so alas, I haven't been able to listen to this yet. I hope to soon.

And I think I must be in the minority when I say I like Antics more than TOTBL, although both are awesome.

The Antics singles sucked too. They tend to select the catchier upbeat songs as singles. Untitled would have never been a a single. Here's Pioneer to the Falls live; really great sound for a bootleg:

Let's just say this band is going noooowhere at light speed. This is easily their worst album yet. It's like their X&Y minus the misplaced ambition. There's no ambition here at all. Just the same old riffs and a ton of shitty lyrics. How could you forsake me like this Interpol? How? Why? You showed so much promise once upon a time. Turns out you were just a one-trick pony. A pony somebody smacked in the face with a shovel and made retarded.

Bleck. I'll give this album one more fair chance another day. But there's no fucking way I'm buying this. You know what? Horray for illegal downloads. It keeps me from blinding purchasing crap albums.

What else is there to say right now? I'm crushed. I mean it's not an abysmal album. But they're capable of soooo much more.
Your reaction would be better directed toward U2, which have had a far greater decline given their promise just for mainstream mega stardom. Not that I don't still have faith in U2, but they've lost their soul this decade. You can't react like that to Interpol and not give U2 a proportionate degree of criticism.

I'm avoiding the download and waiting too. Speaking of Antics, did you hear the redone version of Song Seven during the Antics session you were able to download with the Open Disc software? Just amazing! Beats everything on Antics and most of everything else they've done; it's that good.

Speaking of this, could you tell me what sort of stuff was available to download using the Opendisc thing? I'm curious because I didn't buy my copy of Antics until last year and I'm sure all the downloads are gone by now. And my computer doesn't seem to be compatible with the Opendisc program anyway.

You're in luck; if you are gonna buy Antics get the newer version because every time I put the disc into my computer, it wastes time providing a link to a website which no longer works with Interpol. All there was to download was Song Seven. You could also watch fan-submitted videos with an instrumental version of "Not Even Jail", which sounded great, but was not downloadable. Pretty lame and aggravating because the CD cost extra (at least $4 in Canada) because of the stupid software.

Anyway, for anyone not wanting to violate anything, here's a streaming album version of "Pioneer to the Falls" on Pitchforkmedia:

this is much better than antics

its the same interpol style and sound that we've gotten on their past albums, but the songs are just flat out better than they were on antics

I'd give it 8/10
