5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent !, 11 July 2007
This review is from: Our Love To Admire (Audio CD)
I'm not used to writing reviews, nor are these lines intended as such, but every once in a while I come across CDs which warrant my most sincere devotion, and "Our Love to Admire" is one of them. I will go straight to the point: the sole reason why you should buy this album right away is simply because it is absolutely magnificent! The bass sound, so clearly present in the previous albums (where it set a "gloomy" ambiance for most songs, very characteristic of Interpol's previous work), has been toned down. Guitars, on the other hand, have distinctively taken over almost every song. Therefore, "Our love..." sounds a little different (just a little brighter) but it still sounds very much like Interpol. Apart from the enticing "Heinrich Maneuver", the other songs may not as "immediate" to the first-time listener (especially if you compare them to those in "Antics"), but they'll grow on you pretty fast, believe me. Personally speaking, it took me a few hours to get over the album's first track (the beautiful "Pioneer To The Falls"), and although I've heard it a "million" times, it still makes my skin crawl (I guess it always will)...and I can't help smirking every time I hear "Rest my Chemistry", my favourite song on this album. In my very humble opinion this is not only Interpol's best record, but definitely the best I've heard in 2007, and one of the best released in a long time. Am I exaggerating? Well...you may think so ...but you know what?..."Our Love to Admire" has grown on me to the point of addiction.
