Interpol made one of the albums of the century with their debut Turn on the Bright Lights so following it up must have been daunting for the New York four piece but Antics is no slouch either. Sticking pretty much to the same yardstick (which they've kept pretty much to on subsequent albums) it expands their sound into a more widescreen stadium hinting areas whilst retaining the brittle atmospheres and guitar interplay that marked out their debut.

8/10 Brian 30 November 2006
Here we go. You know those Interpol guys? They made one of the best albums EVER a couple of years back. Out of the blue. Totally flattened The Strokes with their dark & doomy take on 80's overcoat rock smeared in New York grime & stunning claustrophobic production. Like Pixies & QOTSA, a band who'd made an album I could live with forever. Now they're back with the sequel, 'Antics' & those lovely people at Vice think It's "better than the last one". Believe them if you like. It might be. But not to these ears. It's still head & shoulders above most bands but the 10 tracks here veer from the underwhelming to the nearly-as-good-as-Leif Erikson to the one that The Departure probably will rip off next. If you love Interpol then you'll really dig this loads but I'm such a fussy bugger that I'll be pouring over this for months to come trying to suss out why I feel a bit cheated. The vinyl is ultra limited (A 1000 only, exclusive to us indies!) & slipcase CD with some high tech gubbins on there for folk who wank all over their computers at night instead of going out to the pub.
