It’s not that bad, but Passanger and Greenwich really drag it down a bit

If anything on this sounds as atrociously self-absorbed as "Fables", this is getting the awful badge sooner than it thinks.

Fables is the worst song here



Anyone else think Mr Credit sounds like a poor man's Rest My Chemistry? I swear that's the same riff

Nice review. I'm excited to check this out. I think I might have listened to El Pintor back in the day but I can't remember.

Digging: Eminem - The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grce)

Holy fuck this is great. Fables had me worried but that's easily the weakest song on here and it's still decent. I felt their last album was underrated and it seems like this one will be by the majority as well, though this is a step up in quality from Marauder. Greenwich, Into the Night, Toni, and Passenger are sublime, and most of the other tracks are also pretty gripping, and take the sort of ramshackle energy of Marauder forward with better production. I really liked Muzz and some of the tracks on here have that hazy, dreamlike feel, but with Interpol's trademarks.

Digging: Alban Berg - Der Wein

9 songs in and the is the most bloodless fossil indie i've heard in a hot minute. Toni had something solid, but this band are way past it :[

Fine Mess is still the best song they've released since Le Pintor

You listen to this but still haven't listened to Our Love to Admire? Bruh c'mon, Interpol are way past it at this point obviously. OLTA is good though

Anyways, band is a shadow of its former self, they always kinda were after OLTA but the past two records have been straight garbage. Haven't listened to this in full but after listening to the singles I really don't want to honestly

I fucked up back in my Interpol phase, don't @me :[ will maybe check it soon - not sure if I need an immediate timeout on this band, or some course correction

Weird takes on here, not sure how you can be an Interpol fan and hate a song like Fables, like that's almost what they do best on display on that song. Far as this being more positive, maybe positive for Interpol, but it's still dreary in a lot of parts and Banks just sounds depressed, I think, in general as a vocalist. He sounds weary in some parts of the album. Great album so far great sound, sonically.

How that guy could say this sounds worse than Marauder on the previous page, boggles my fucking mind.

jeez I wish I felt this way about the album



"Fables" and "Into the Night" are the worst here but there is a lot of sloggy hook-less "Daniel writes a winding guitar riff and the rest of the band just kinda has to work around it" on here
