I heard of Interpol when the single 'Evil' was released and i couldn't wait to get this album. Since then i have purchased their debut album and have been immensley satsified by both.
This album is an absolute must for anyone who enjoys the sounds of a band making good music and also experimenting with their sound.
Here are my verdicts on the tracks:
Next Exit: This is a brilliant opening track. It starts of slowly with a guitar and synth but builds into an epic chorus which will have you tapping your feet along to.
Evil: This song is stunning and is brilliant live. With the pounding bass intro and the soaring chorus this song is the first highlight of the album.
Narc: This song sees the band slow down after Evil but they don't let the quality go. This is a brilliant song and builds into a brilliant chorus with fantastic lyrics.
Take You On A Cruise: This is an epic track and is almost the best on the album. I can't say much more to be honest. Simply stunning.
Slow Hands: Another single and it really picks up the pace for the album. The chorus and middle eight of this song deliver much joy and you will listen to it again and again.
Not Even Jail: A pulsating intro to this song soars into a fantastic verse and breathtaking chorus. For me, this is the highlight of the album and needs to be heard, for the chorus alone. Amazing!
Public Pervert: Another good filler track but it tends to drag on. A good song nonetheless!
C'Mere: Another brilliant single from the band. This is a great song and is great live.
Length Of Love: Similar structure to Slow Hands but a song that stands on it's own two feet. Needs to be heard. The lyrics are stunning.
A Time To Be So Small: A fantastic outro by Inerpol. Epic.
Overall, i love this album! It is very different (apart from Editors!) and shows a brilliant band in the prime of their careers.
Buy it now!
