Although we can mock (and the Guardian already did) about literally every album getting the re-issue treatment, 'Our Love To Admire' was one of Interpol's strongest albums. Dark brooding post punk that showed there was life in the band after the so-so 'Antics'. If their self titled fourth album gets re-issued though with the same treatment then a line will have been crossed.
6/10 Phil Staff review, 06 July 2007Wow... a single and a new album from Interpol all in one week. Am sure that's not supposed to be right but hey that's how it's happened. Our Love To Admire is in now on CD (and Limited CD) with your poor vinyl followers having to be more patient. I suspect you're all used to that but I'm sure it will be here in the next few weeks? Well so far I've only heard 5-6 songs of this and I can say that if it wasn't the same guy singing you probably wouldn't recognise them musically. It's uber polished, commercial sounding indie guitar rock music which is extremely accomplished but a little bland. They've lost whatever edge they still had in the transition from the last album to the new one. Maybe I'm being unfair but I always expect so much from Interpol after their amazing debut album. You can hear the major label influence here.....having said then when I opened the CD I was confronted by a track listing with ringtone numbers next to it. What do you expect! The jury is out on this one. I won't completely knock it just yet....
