Haven't listened yet will wait for the official, but I want to say that All the Rage is one of my fav songs of the year. Love it.

I have enjoyed my first listens of El Pintor - My Desire in particular feels like it is going to be a huge grower - however I feel divided on it.

I really loved moments of Interpol but that album was a drag in places also. Conversely, El Pintor is sharp and concise but lacks the magic of moments like Summer Well, Try It On and Lights.

Oh and I fucking loved Barricade, despite almost ruinous lyrics. Banks has done a great job on bass here and contributes to the urgency of many of the songs, but the swagger of the bass in songs like Barricade is missed too.

Mixed emotions, but this is a great and unique band who will always require my attention. Give me five songs from Interpol and five from El Pintor and we have a winner.

I agree with the above post. El Pintor is solid but there aren't that many stand-outs. It's Interpol being Interpol, though a bit more concise than usual.

Isn't it always super fun to hear what people who have listened to all their albums 6 times each have to say about subpar quality streams and leaks?

I have no idea who it is exactly you're referring to, but maybe it's for the best if you avoid threads like these as soon as a leak is announced (a relatively substantial amount of time had passed between this and any kind of first impression). I tend to do that myself if I want to be patient with new music coming out. And the leak is high quality, nothing alike the one that surfaced with self-titled in 2010.

All things considered, I'd say this is a fair assessment in the end.

So now we're not allowed to listen to official steams either? Should I start filing paperwork with you before I post my opinions as well? Wouldn't want to have a conversation before it's due time.

I listened to it again today, since my first got interrupted. I'm still really feeling the opener as my favorite track. I'm also very fond of "Anywhere" and "Same Town, New Story". It drops off a bit after track five for a song or two, but "Tidal Wave" is, musically, the best song on here, which is nice. And, I don't really care much for the closer, yet.

I'm still pleased.

This is almost exactly how I feel. It's a very solid effort, and definitely a step up from the last two in my mind. I know the guitar tone is nothing new for them, but there is a sharpness and urgency to it here that gives the whole album a slightly unsettling atmosphere, which is a good thing for me.

Best since Antics. Not enough highlights to top that album, but it's consistently very enjoyable. All the Rage Back Home is probably the best track.

Any Doves fans note the similarity in riff between their song 'One of These Days' and 'Tidal Wave'?

3. Don't have opinions and preferences that differ from mine
4. Make katsudon
5. Say hello to the angels

You did not follow rules 1 & 2, but I'll allow it.

There are a couple decent places nearby that make a few good "cooked" Japanese dishes. One place does a katsu curry that is flat out fantastic. I've been wanting to eat there for like two months, and now I'm thinking about it again because Japanese food was mentioned.

For some reason I have been thinking this album comes out next Tuesday for weeks. I am not happy to realize it's the 9th.

I promise that next time I will make Katsudon.

If it makes you feel any better, I burned the hell out of it this time around :'(.

There's actually a Japanese BBQ place here. And I do mean Japanese BBQ. Like cook it yourself at your table. I couldn't believe it. Travis is taking me there for my birthday next week, I am uber excited. Haven't had that shiz in almost 10 years.

I am jealous, I had no idea that had those types of places in the US.

Neither did I. Unsurprisingly, most of the negative reviews for the place on Yelp are from people who are baffled at the idea that they had to make their own food.
