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

5.0 out of 5 stars Interpol - Our Love To Admire 23 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars _____________________________________ 11 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
New York's finest Interpol return with their third album " Our Love To Admire"

The lyric on mammoth "Spare me the suspense" could encapsulate the feelings of feelings prior to this album being released, as the band broke up four times between this record and antics, leaving many fans wondering if their third album would ever see the light of day.

Well they managed to dispense with the drama, iron out their difference and release their third effort, their first release to be released on a major label.

On first listen this appears to be know different than what the band have done before, it sound like just another dark and brooding Interpol effort, which is.

But each listen you can notice the subtleties in this album, there is even a few moments that will make you chuckle.

In particular, their lyrics of the second song "No I In Threesome", is a great slice of dark humour

The only time that this album doesn't work, is with the last song "The Lighthouse" which at the out set in would appear that this is going to build into a crescendo, that never delivers upon this and renders the track plane boring.

That being said, this is a superlative collection of tracks, that is in my opinion Interpol's finest collection of songs to date.

If were not for the last track being sub power, this would have gotten the full five stars, instead of the four that I have given it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a grower........ 10 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Light amid the shade.... 26 July 2007
By DOGG
Format:Audio CD
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.....!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait 18 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
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)
