Really looking forward to this. Hopefully it will be a step up from their self-titled.

Compared to Interpol, there's no where to go but up.

I don't find it awful or anything like that, just generally unremarkable, especially when compared to their first two albums.

I don't want to be a broken record about this, but I honestly think it's their second best and I like Antics a lot. I'm generally very pleased with this band. It was a hard choice not to go see them on Saturday, I really hope I'll be able to go to their show later next month, I just didn't want to see them without knowing the new songs first.

I liked it, and recently listened to it again and enjoyed it from start to finish. It's the only album of theirs I didn't see them supporting live. Whether intentional or not, I guess that sorta says something about my feelings too. Pretty excited to see them on this tour though.

It's definitely better than Our Love to Admire.

So far, they're playing 3 songs of the new one at best.

All 10 songs have leaked BTW.

For context: They'll be back on the 22nd and I would have missed two other bands to see them.

Yeah, I saw from the recent setlists that they are not playing many new songs yet. Maybe they'll add a few more new ones after their record release show next Tuesday. I don't mind either way - since I've never seem they live, I want to hear some old ones too.

I agree with that. Not a fan of Our Love to Admire at all (although I really like Mammoth).

So anybody heard the album yet?

I can preorder it from Qobuz in 24/96 FLAC for €10.99, but I've been waiting to hear a stream first.

That's funny, because I do like Our Love to Admire more than the self-titled, although it's very, very flawed, and I consider Mammoth to be one of its lowpoints.

This new one sounds a bit generic after first listen.

I'm really not feeling this album.

Time to turn on the bright lights for refreshment.

, of course I have to do something for work right after I turn this on. I'll be back later.

(I was really enjoying it, though. Opener was my fav.)

I do too. Self-titled has a more consistent "album" feel in theme and sound, but Our Love has far more memorable songs.

Regardless, they're both pretty weak compared to the first two.

Alright, back to it!

The opener and Always are great great songs. I also really love the feel of Same Town, New Story. Didn't care a lot for My Desire on first listen, it was a little *too* moody.

From that part on, nothing's really stuck out to me, but I like it all. Once again, I think it's a very solid album that sounds like a band I greatly enjoy.

I have always enjoyed Interpol, but they are a band that has never really taking the next step. If that makes sense!? They need there unforgettable fire moment. And after saying all that I am really enjoying the new album.

My Desire is an early standout for me.

I like maybe three songs on it and All the Rage is easily the highlight. Tidal Wave and Same Town, New Story are solid I guess.

The self-titled had Lights at least, which is one of my favorites.
