another stunning effort,
This review is from: Our Love to Admire (Includes Special Edition Booklet) (Audio CD)
i acquired this album through a friend of a friend who had a promo copy. This was 24 hrs ago now and i can say already: WOW! It's another great album from Interpol.
The opener 'Pioneer To The Falls' continues the tradition of strong album starts. It's arguably the best best of the three so far. The single 'The Heinrich Manoever' took a few listens to grow on me but now I love it. 'Mammoth' follows and is sure to become a firm favourite for any fan. Then completing a flourishing triumvirate, and a flawless first half is 'Pace Is The Trick' which is simply wonderful.
It's true to say the the second half of the album doesn't quite continue in the same way. However, the songs at their very worst ('All Fired Up') are still 100 times better than the cheap imitators like Editors, and the final track 'Lighthouse' is the closest Interpol have come to their own proclamation that they are more influenced by film than music. It is epic in scale and demonstrates to me why Interpol are such an important band.
