From the highly melodic “Barricade” and “Lights” through the snarling “Memory Serves” and the extraordinary triptych of connected tracks that close the album, Interpol have never made work this emotionally resonant or packed with crescendos. Mixer Alan Moulder has brought the rhythm section back to the fore, anchoring a thicket of orchestral sound that ... Read more in Amazon's Interpol Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Band, decent EP 11 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
I had the good fortune to see this band in New York, and can confirm that they are a captivating live band well worth watching. Masterful songs, excellent bass player, mesmerising singer. This band is perhaps the best to come out of the NY scene. However, many of their catchier numbers are not on this EP. If you're going to judge them, it should be on the basis of their full length album, which I think, is due near the end of the year.
It's a good 'EP,' but it doesn't show off just how good this band really is. - Neil, UK

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any Interpol fan 9 April 2003
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The "Interpol EP" was originally issued in June, 2002 as a "preview' of their debut album "Turn on the Bright Lights". Even though 2 of the 3 tracks on the EP would wound up on the album, it nevertheless is an essential CD for any Interpol fan.
"PDA" is one of the best songs from the "Bright Lights" album. It comes with a hard-driven, yet mesmorising beat, and the last 2 min. "outro" is genius. "NYC" is the most inward looking song (don't call it a ballad!) from the album, and the one that would give the album its title. "Specialist" is the last track, and the one that makes this EP, er, "special". The song is completely in line with the dark atmosphere of the album, and similar in energy to tracks like "PDA" and "Obstacle 1". (It is also a staple on Interpol's current set list. If you have a chance to see them live, don't hesitate!) Buy all means, BUY IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great e.p. - great price. 26 July 2002
By fnordboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great e.p., for the right price. I'd pay the money just for "P.D.A." The full length CD will be released in August, but for now, buy this e.p. By the way, I can understand why people reference Joy Division when speaking of Interpol, but let me be the first to mention (at least in this forum) that these guys are the spitting aural image of the Chameleons UK. And that's a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Hundred Couches? 8 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After hearing all of these new bands copping moves and fashions from people who could be their grandfathers I've grown a little sickened -- how many waifish boys in sharp clothes discovering vinyl for the first time can one take? But Interpol is changing my mind. Sure, they listen to a lot of Joy Division (and Galaxie 500, for that matter), but it all feels somehow renewed, rather than rehashed...I've been listening to the same three songs on this Interpol EP with increasing fascination. If the full-length meets the standards of these three songs, we just might have something worth getting ecstatic about.

4.0 out of 5 stars All hail the second coming of 80s alternative rock 17 Jun 2002
By Dave P - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is fantastic Joy Division influenced pop from NYC, moody with high emotional drama and some really good songs. A few years ago a band a sound steeped in 80s melodic postpunk would not have been taken seriously (e.g., Stretch Princess). But with the emergence of bands such as The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Hives, and The Mooney Suzuki, the grunge/indie/emo logjam has finally been shattered. I eagerly look forward to the full-length in August!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new cd this year... 6 Nov 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're tired of the [stuff] that's being put out these days in the "music" genre, give Interpol a try. They have both a nostalgiac feel, while retaining a freshness that keeps the listener coming back for more!
