Looking forward to giving this a listen, as the previous album was superb. But I didn't think the band getting a new drummer was going to change much anyway.

Digging: Interpol - El Pintor

Breaking all Illusions is fantastic, the rest are pretty mediocre

Not trying to change the subject or get off topic, but everyone should check out track 1 and 3 from this stream... at least track 3 for you slack-asses that can't even be bothered to click too many links because this is awesome prog:

It does when your drummer writes at least half of your material.

Does that mean this is extremely different than the band's other albums?

Not really, it just sounds like a blend of some of their past work, mainly their 90's stuff.

Nope. It just sounds like their oldest stuff, with a bit of the new mixed in. Apparently a time when it was still more of a democracy within the band.

I checked it out because it seemed to be one of the marquee releases of the year. Hoped they would
surprise me, but this is the most boring album of 2011, aside from Heritage.

I was underwhelmed by it at first, but now I think it's one of their best releases. Took me a while to take the album for what it was and also realize how technical it actually is.

The songwriting on this one is much more consistent throughout but the lack of anything that's really mindblowing is disappointing given that pretty much every record so far has at least one track that was downright awesome.

Good review btw Willie. I still might throw up a slightly more negative one in the next few days.

Thanks. I expect that there will be a few more reviews soon -- especially since I deleted a few last week
