iTunes Editors’ Notes

Interpol’s self-titled fourth album puts them back in the independent realm where they made their name. Whereas the previous Our Love to Admire sounded like a major-label album – grand and garish with lots of pomp and circumstance – this release scales things back. They sharpen their guitars on the surprisingly sparse single “Lights” and find much to grind against in their post-apocalyptic ways. The echo and reverb remains plenty heavy and the angst is spotted with glittery, jittery rhythms and panicked vocals. “Success” and “Memory Serves” start things with a hesitant jubilance drifting over the proceedings. “Barricade” breaks out from the pack while “Always Malaise (The Man I Am)” winds down into a gloomy pond. Other tracks like “Try It On,” “All of the Ways” and “The Undoing” dive deeper into their own rarefied type of darkness.

Customer Reviews

3 years and this is it? 8 /

I'm a huge Interpol fan since 02'. Have a huge tattoo of their symbol on my arm to prove it but it hurts me so much to say that this album is mediocre. I can save 3 songs that were great but the rest had nothing that could be considered true Interpol magic. No one is expecting a TOBT 2 and it's great to experiment but this comes short to what Interpol are truly capable. I'll never stop being a lifelong fan but in 3 years is this what they give us? I'm disappointed. I honestly believe that the band is also disappointed with this album. They're back with matador records and I think the next album will b greater. Thank You Interpol still for everything!!!

It grew on me.

First listen was abysmal for me and severely depressing. It wasn't until I listened through again...and again...that it grew on me. I love it, but I do miss that old Interpol sound. And Carlos D. =(

There was a point in time when I could play my iPod and NOT skip an Interpol song because every single one was worth listening to no matter how many times it had already been listened to. That was until Our Love to Admire and the self-title came out. I'll probably skip Crimewaves (the bonus song) to no end. It was too experimental for Interpol. And not in a good experimental Animal Collective way.

Always Malaise happens to be fabulous though!

I still love you, Interpol. Forever and ever! <3

Turn Off the Dull Lights

Interpol is sadly on a downward trend. Where they used to rock out, they now fumble around with shallow lyrics. Slow songs that used to have meaning, juxtaposed against the fast songs with energy, now smear out endlessly over the entire album. This album feels like it has no passion, or at least the attempt of creating passion feels forced. The flow that the previous ablums had is replaced by strange voice changes and awkward beats. If you like Interpol because of songs like Narc, Slow Hands, PDA and Obstacle 1, this album is not for you. If you like Interpol because of songs like NYC, Leif Erikson, Stella... and Lighthouse, this album was attempt for you that falls beyond flat, literally.

If this is the trend that Interpol wants to continue with, I will be hard pressed to buy their next album and can understand why Carlos D is leaving the band.

Biography

Formed: 1998 in New York, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

One of the leading post-punk revivalists of the 2000s and 2010s, Interpol took their cues from Joy Division and the Chameleons, fashioning a darkly atmospheric sound helmed by intricate guitars and Paul Banks' somber baritone. The group also had a striking visual presence marked by the members' fondness for suits, which only strengthened their stately, British-influenced appeal. Nevertheless, the band remained rooted in America, where guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Greg Drudy first struck up...
