The formidable debut from Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights, which turns 15 this year. In that early-2000s city environment, the New York post-punk revivalists dished out generous helpings of gloom, brooding vocals and those headily dark basslines that we’re still enjoying now. LP or CD on Matador.

9/10 Phil Staff review, 13 January 2007
Starting off with the new album by Interpol. Now I thought this was surprisingly great. Harking back to the days of the mid 80's indie ala Chameleons and Kitchens Of Dinstinction. In fact it sounds an awful lot like the Kitchens Of Distinction in places. Rammed full of pop tunes this came out of the blue and grabbed me. Turn On The Bright Lights is done with an alarming degree of efficiency it's really qute incredible. So much so in fact I'd advise you not to ignore it....

9/10 Tom Customer review, 23rd May 2018

The debut album from Interpol still sounds as fresh today as it did when it was first released in 2002. It paints a chilly picture of their native New York, a shadowy post-punk alternative to the bright retro rock of their contemporaries and fellow New Yorkers the Strokes whose own debut Is This It was released to mass hysteria the year before.

From the opening chimes and the sweeping bassline of 'Untitled', to the cinematic nostalgia 'NYC' to closer 'Leif Erikson', Turn on the Bright Lights is a near-perfect post-punk album and the best album of Interpol's career.
