good tune but Paul's voice is so far gone, the baritone just isn't there

sounds better than anything on the last album though

this song is ok but i guess i'll always listen to a new interpol record

so they're headlining Madison Square Garden in February, with Car Seat Headrest and Snail Mail opening. Seemed a bit of a reach in 2007, curious to see how this one turns out. Two openers are certainly a good draw, might go up and get a seat in the nosebleeds.

I'm w/ brad on this one, many songs from the last one were better than this. Kinda curious to see if Fridmann pushes them in any particular direction.

El Pintor was fine but I haven't revisited it at all since I saw them in late 2014. Am I the only one that really loves the s/t? the first half of that record is on par with Bright Lights and Antics imo

flappy bird, Thursday, 7 June 2018 17:17 (two weeks ago) Permalink

probably yes, i hated the s/t the first time i heard it and have only revisited it occasionally

but then i think our love to admire is super underrated, hi alfred

So do I, the production is a bit thin but the songs are pretty strong and Paul's voice has more body/isn't as reedy as El Pintor or this new one.

Definitely an album that sounds better in retrospect.

I like every Interpol record though the mixing on OLTA hurts my ears a bit. The closing trio on the s/t is one of my favorite stretches they've done.

"mammoth" -> "pace is the trick" >>>

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Thursday, 7 June 2018 17:30 (two weeks ago) Permalink

yea Pace is the Trick is the hidden gem on that record. i have a soft spot for Who Do You Think too

OLTA is one of those records I love to loathe most in the world.

the s/t just sounded to me like a band falling apart not just literally but in the songwriting. but... i'm overdue to give it another shot

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Thursday, 7 June 2018 17:37 (two weeks ago) Permalink

"barricade" is an instance where the video made me retroactively like the song but idk, it still sounds kinda like a mess

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Thursday, 7 June 2018 17:38 (two weeks ago) Permalink

They sound utterly miserable and lost on it for sure but in a mostly appealing way? (Def has a few duff tracks tho)

Simon H., Thursday, 7 June 2018 17:44 (two weeks ago) Permalink

at the very least i'll listen to sam fogarino drum on anything

Branwell to thread

"Summer Well" is particularly strong - sounds like an Antics track.

flappy bird, Thursday, 7 June 2018 17:58 (two weeks ago) Permalink

"Memory Serves" and "The Undoing" would make my Interpol POX probably

Simon H., Thursday, 7 June 2018 18:12 (two weeks ago) Permalink

oh god yeah "summer well" is good, i forgot. "memory serves" is kinda overwhelmed with multitracked paul

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Thursday, 7 June 2018 21:43 (two weeks ago) Permalink

So much multitracked paul anguish on that album lol
