Interpol- Our Love To Admire Review

I know I posted about Interpol only a few days ago, but whilst trawling through the hype machine for the latest up and coming bands I saw a link to a blog offering the whole of Our Love To Admire as a zip file. Now, I don't agree with what this blogger did, but he will remain anonymous; posting a whole album doesn't build hype or promote a band- it just gives people something for free which should cost £10. I downloaded this zip file with a promise to myself that I would still go out and buy this album when it comes out in a few weeks.

Now that I've made clear how I feel about this, I can get on to the album, which I have to say is fantastic. Interpol have really picked up their game since their last album Antics, which didn't really have a lasting impression on me (I suppose you could call this Antics 2.0). With Our Love To Admire, they have produced an album which on the first play is as good if not better than Turn On The Bright Lights. That is quite a large claim to make at this point, but I am confident with my view on the album, even if I have only listened to it two or three times. It is at this point that I should probably mention that Our Love To Admire doesn't really shake up their basic formula; it's an Interpol album, through and through. However, that doesn't stop it from being great- despite the sub tones of sex, drugs and death which run strongly through this album, an inexplicably happy feeling accompanies each listen of the tracks. I don't have time today to run through the album track-by-track but special mention should be given to Pioneer To The Falls, the opening song, which features twinkly piano and a guitar riff I'm sure I have heard somewhere else, but regardless of the (possible) plagiarism, it is a fantastic song, and should be the next single. Another must listen tune from the album is No I In Threesome, which again shows that the band have decided to incorporate piano into their songs the third time around, something which they have mentioned in recent interviews. I have included a few lines from this track, which is obviously about sex, alongside other songs on the album such as Rest My Chemistry and Pace Is The Trick.
"You feel the sweet breath of time
It's whispering, it's truth, not mine
There's no 'I'
In threesome"

Just before I finish, I think its important to note the way in which Our Love To Admire ends; despite the fact I said the album is the same as all the others before it, there are small signs of progression: rather than going out with a bang, the band have tacked on two experimental tracks- Lighthouse and Wrecking Ball- which are both great. It's good to see that there may well be change in Interpol's sound over the next few years. It bodes well for the future...
