This is my favorite Interpol record. The best singles they have put out are here, the tracklist is consistent and the production is BIG and atmospheric. Love this record
I like the production and lyrics here and I think "Our Love To Admire" is very melodic and solid overall. It's just that Interpol is beginning to sound formulaic.

I do admit that the album cover, involving an interspecies threesome, is pretty cool.

Fav Tracks: No I In Threesome, The Heinrich Maneuver, Rest My Chemistry, Pioneer To The Falls, Mammoth, The Scale

Least Fav Track: Wrecking Ball

Very Good
An okay album from Interpol, that doesn't expand upon their sound, and actually doesn't make anything all that exciting compared to its predecessors. But, I really enjoy a good chunk of it, I like the direction the album takes on some songs, some of them have a more Pop influence on tracks like The Heinrich Maneuver, or some others like Pioneer To the Falls, that sounds a lot like something that would come out of the first records, with its darker sound and lyrics.

For their major debut, they used all the urban gloom they could get, just to impress an already suspicious audience, who would probably understand the trap hidden behind a barren style.
