Biography

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

You will not find Interpol straying far from what they know on this, their third LP. Musically, the band have developed very little. Bar the introduction of Keyboards into the mix, there is very little to distinguish the sound of album number three from Antics or Turn on the Bright Lights. It remains minimalist alternative Indie, with a slightly greater emphasis on the lead guitar.

Where the band have progressed is in song and album structure. Each track is a thoroughly enjoyable listen: eleven emotionally charged tracks, each leading from the last with fluidity and grace. Each instrument is now less obvious among the mix, facilitating a more professional, and grander sound (evident no more so than on epic album opener "Pioneer to the Falls"). The album succeeds as one piece of work, and as a collection of tracks, and has nailed the formula for what is required to make an album great.

Our Love to Admire is arguably the band's greatest work to date - the album features practically no filler. It is a thoroughly enjoyable listen throughout, and is definitely one of the finds of 2007.

I have been listening to an advance copy of this album for over two weeks now (I've since bought it), and there were the obvious stand-out tracks that hit you immediately, such as Pioneer To The Falls, The Heinich Maneuver, Mammoth and Pace Is The Trick.

All of these tracks are good enough to be on Antics and Turn On The Bright Lights. Some of the other tracks are not immediate hits, such as Scale, All Fired Up, Wrecking Ball and Who Do You Think. However, in time, you will find that you listen to these tracks more than the stand-out tracks. Along with Lighthouse, these are now the tracks that make me want to listen to this album.

I now think this is better than the last two albums. Genius.

All I can say is well done lads, you've gone and done it again! You've gone and made another classic album!

GREAT! Interpol have done it...delicate shades of light amid the darkness, a progression,an essential part of any indie music and this third album is full of subtle changes and chinks of daylight.

After the intense and slightly montonous "Antics".."Our Love" is a gentler synthesis of chiming guitars,glacial synths and softer vocals from paul banks. the lyrics are better than on "Antics" and the baritone gloom is lifted in some tracks as well.

I really didnt expect much from this but Interpol have touched greatness here with some glimpses of melody,hints of harmony and even a Morricone-influenced closing track..the future is a little less black.....!

Like a lot of Interpol fans I was waiting with nervous anticipation for this album, all the hype and speculation about the possiblities of signing for a major label ruining the sound are for the most part unfounded.
This album really benefits from a greater level of instumentation over the last two, oboe solo anyone? Production is excellent throughout although, although some may dislike the poppier sound to some, but not all of the tracks, drums seem to be more to the fore than before, with the bass taking a little more of a back seat and losing some of the peculiar but brilliant funk/disco vibe that antics had, there's a real feeling of "cinema" throughout.
It's a captivating listen, suffering a little from the usual swing between the ridiculous and sublime lyrics of Paul Banks, some give pause for thought and reflection, others are more like slightly dodgy sixth form poetry, but as usual that's the minority.
highlights for me include the opener Pioneer to the falls, a heartfelt and bold start to the album, no I in threesom is excellent and an unusual topic for a track, lets hope it's a single.
For me the slight lows would be All fired up... it's just a bit.. weak, although it's no doubt going to be popular on the dancefloor, who do you think and lighthouse aren't too inspiring, but perhaps they'll be long term "growers".
Overall though, a thoroughly good third album that sticks to the Interpol formula, but adds a new level of polish that doesn't in anyway detract from the atmosphere and feel you'd expect. (The special edition is nicely done too)

There was a definite fear with Interpol's move from indie Matador to major Capitol and Carlos D's look drifiting from vague fascist of a Joy Division disposition to the look of The Killers that Interpol would turn into one of those bands of a U2/Coldplay disposition. It could be done - remember how great Simple Minds were before the bombast set in, or how bad the Bunnymen were when they tried to do that stuff? Our Love to Admire isn't that vast shift, in fact, it's Interpol as usual, just with a more ambitious, wider sound - vaster production values, but none of that bombast. It's quite refreshing to here a band trying to extend their earlier sound accordingly, so there is essence of Talk Talk in opener Pioneer to the Falls, twiddly post rock shapes on The Lighthouse and Wrecking Ball, and psychedelia on Mammoth, which sounds like Dust-era Screaming Trees playing a Psychedelic Furs song. Our Love to Admire isn't the sellout LP, and Interpol don't warrant those Duran Duran-jibes from the Independent's Andy Gill (especially since they seem to have been borrowed from a member of Battles dissing The Strokes in the Guardian!!). Interpol do sound like bands of yore - Comsat Angels, Kitchens of Distinction, the Furs, The Chameleons, The Sound, the Bunnymen etc - but they still manage to sound a bit fresh and transcend the easy fingerpointing "that comes from there...and there..." that I do with LCD Soundsystem, Josef Ferdinand & Radiohead.

The most epic tracks are amongst the most interesting here, Pioneer to the Falls, Rest My Chemistry and The Lighthouse all push five minutes, perhaps this is a direction Interpol should follow next?
