CRITIC REVIEWS

Coke Machine Glow

Though Turn on the Bright Lights was the best album of 2002, I’ll not hesitate to say that, barring some otherworldly competition, Antics looks to be the best album of 2004.

91
Spin

The album feels confident and spacious where Bright Lights felt claustrophobic.

90
Drowned in Sound

Interpol have produced a soaring, inventive album that, while incorporating the deliciously dark atmosphere of Turn On The Bright Lights, merely uses it as a base to create more ambitious, warmer soundscapes.

Pitchfork
Though Interpol couldn't be expected to surpass their previous heights, it's difficult to imagine a savvier or more satisfying second step.
83
Entertainment Weekly

There are enough new wrinkles in the quartet’s tailored suits to keep things from getting too redundant.

80
Rolling Stone

Antics achieves a tunefulness that warms and broadens Interpol's music, and helps them establish an identity distinct from their dolorous influences.

80
Uncut

This is cut to perfection: exhilarating, morbid, romantic, cool.

AllMusic

The truth ... is that they will never make a record as special as the debut. However, following it with one that is merely very good is no crime.

60
Tiny Mix Tapes
It's basically an album that will attract more fans for the band on a commercial level, but won't do much to retain the older fans who appreciated their darker material.

Sputnikmusic

The effort is there, that can't be denied, and the instruments are just as good as the debut. But if you want true Interpol, stick with Turn On The Bright Lights.

With their second album, Interpol are simply trying to keep the light open, no matter the price they have to pay and they are not willing to pay much.

Not as good as TOTBL, but nevertheless a really good album.

Interpol haciendo con una guitarra inspirada en punk y post punk, una línea de bajo con firma y una presencia súper puesta en una voz más que atmosférica. Interpol puede hacer una cosa y hacerla muy bien, al ponerte los audífonos con su música no importa, siempre está lloviendo afuera
