It seems like I'm the only one who really likes this album.
Everywhere the reactions are pretty negative and that's an understatement.

I do like it. There are songs on it that I really like, but as a whole, it just seems a little flat.

Agreed. Despite my negativity, I like it as well. I'm probably a bit overly critical with Interpol, as I love the bands first two albums so much. That said, a "bad" album from Interpol is still better than a "good" album from a large number of other bands.

I finally listened the other day, and I got the same feeling. I enjoyed a couple of songs, but overall it doesn't really seem to go anywhere. It's just...there.

Album is a grower, but I'm inclined to enjoy anything Interpol release, because they just really click with me, but Safe Without is just a downright song.

The Undoing is all sorts of awesome.

Anyone else seeing them in the next month or two? I'm pretty much exactly a month away, starting to get excited. Listened through the "new" album again this week for the first time in a while, liked it considerably more than I had remembered.

They're playing in Toronto in February, but I loath the venue and just saw them a few months back, so I might skip this one. The show I did see was really good. Just before the album was released. I did miss Carlos though

Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion Interpol.

I'm seeing them on July 5th. They're opening for a pack of fat old Irish drunks that are traveling around playing songs underneath a gigantic glowing crab.

Uggh, I keep forgetting they're opening as well, as it makes the insult that is The Fray all the worse.

I should add that, in my mind, you look like Val Kilmer in Tombstone


Hey, you guys ever quote yourself on Interference before?

As long as you don't quote yourself in your own signature, it's all good.

I saw them play Melbourne last Friday night, after doing the NYE festival circuit in Australia.

Gig was at the Palace Theatre, one of my favorite Melbourne venues, which is an old ramshackle venue in the heart of the city that has a certain charm about it... When the crowd was jumping, the floor was wobbling, felt like it was gonna give way!

Incredible gig, Barricade disappoints live, but Lights was a highlight, and really is the monster live moment the studio version promised it to be.

They played Leif Erikson, which made me very happy, particularly as it's not a staple and didn't feature at the previous gig in Sydney.

Take You On A Cruise and The New also got a run, which was good for me personally as they didn't feature in the set when I last saw them back in '08.

Only two songs from OLTA (Mammoth, Chemistry), no C'Mere or Untitled.

Banksy really looked to be enjoying himself. No Carlos, and while I miss his presence, I still felt like I got more than my money's worth. Top show.

They're playing here tonight, and I still don't have a ticket. I'm sorta on the fence about going, as I'm feeling really tired after not sleeping well post-Super Bowl stomach abuse. I've seen them 3 times before already. Should I still go so I can prove I'm a "real fan"?

Also, if I do go, is "woo-ing" appropriate behavior? Please respond to this question in great detail. Thank you.

Pitchfork: Dave Pajo Leaves Interpol

I'm probably the only person who's disappointed by this. Really wish they wouldn't have canceled for someone being sick here a few weeks ago, as I won't get to see him when they reschedule.

Not leaving because of any sort of problems, just doesn't want to tour any more. Understandable considering how long he's been active, I suppose.

Apparently, Obstacle 1's bass line is just too challenging.
