I like this song. I like other Interpol songs more though... even if they seem (seemed?) to take themselves a little too seriously :)
Wow...this is, like, awful...

Can anybody say me what means that fisrt line, please...my english is so poor...
Joy Division from New York with some fresh style of music...Antics are similar as their first album. nothing new.sorry boys.
I have to say that my friends comment sort of speaks to how I feel about Interpol. After we saw them perform at the Curiosa tour I asked what she thought and her response was "I liked that song they played" and really that is how I feel, they have a good sound but every song sort of suffers from sounding the same somehow. I like them, just need to hear them one song at a time or I start to become pretty bored.
Well for commercially popular stuff, it's fairly palatable. I've got Turn on the Bright Lights and I like it okay. Someone said it correctly though -- don't listen too hard to the lyrics. What lyrics? They're just phrases.
I like Interpol a lot. Last Monday they played at 3rd floor of Mexico's WTC. They were supposed to have 2 dates but, second concert was cancelled due to security... During the first concert people were so exited and happy that they began jumping and jumping and jumping and... floor structure was damaged!
Catchy & boppy. Wakes me up!
Another Coldplay...Please Stop it!

What a snooze. Jim Morrison without the ego, without the evil, without the pretend-"poetry." Oh-- And without the outstanding band.
Well, it is kind of a cool video: (click here)

Does anyone else think this sounds like a b-side from the Tragically Hip?
i can see it, the singing style is similar, not nearly the sould though
Top notch. One of the best young bands out there.

:? :headshake: Straining the limits of mediocrity. Straining for a 3.

You little dumbass. Let's find YOU in ten years and see if the music you like sounds any different than the sounds you enjoy right now, today. This is certainly no more experimental than Joy Division, The Clash, hell, The Dead Milkmen. I could add Pink Floyd to the list. Over the hill... biatch.
No need to get your depends in a wad.

What is "indie" these days but a clever new marketing package. This band sucks, and it is only a media darling because there is nothing better out there to sell these days. Period.
Not going to defend the new album, but you should check out Turn on the Bright Lights. Either that or get your ears checked.
Bobbing my head ... :nodhead: :nodhead: \:D/

I am addicted to this song. I first saw the music video for Evil at atomfilms.com. Weird with a capital W. But the song settles right into the brain. I had to buy the album and I'm really enjoying it. For an old guy like me its hard to find new music that I like. Interpol is a pleasure.

hahaha! based on the songs I've heard, the hype about this band seems quite unjustified

The beautiful thing about it is, "Over the Hill" is coming for you too, and it will be coming for you directly. Happy Trails!

Just saw them live a couple of weeks ago and they were amazing. It was my second time seeing them, and I agree with you, they just keep getting better.

Most of them really aren't on the indie scene anymore. They've all accomplished quite a bit of fame now, especially Radiohead. Now if you're talking about unique and original sounds, then yeah, all of them are pretty good at that. I think most of the people here can't really appreciate newer experimental sounds such as noise pop and stuff, over the hill must really suck.

This song is pushing my opinion of Interpol back toward the positive.
my 16 yr old son likes them. may not be great but at least he's listening to a wide variety of music.
"At best" is the operative phrase. All their songs have the same "chunky 8th note" feel; i.e. they all sound the same. Wasn't this ground already covered in the 80s? Add to that the lead singer of the B-52s--only MONOTONE--and you have one overrated band. Gish05 wrote:
Interpol is decent at best... Turn on the Bright Lights had some good tunes (Untitled, PDA, NYC, Hands Away), but the rest of their discography is kind of blah. We are not in a musical ice age! I hate it when people say that. Its just that the good stuff is not popular. The indie scene is great right now. Sonic Youth, Wilco, Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, The Arcade Fire, Trail of Dead, Modest Mouse... all are great bands making great music.

how did these guys get so popular? this is so annoying.
We are in the midst of another musical Ice Age. Just like the mid 70s. That's why. There is nothing better out there right now, I guess. Interpol is the Mot the Hoople of the 2000s.

I like them. They've got a great sound and they sound tight . . . just don't listen too hard to the lyrics, because some of them are pretty damn awkward. Funny article about that: https://www.stylusmagazine.com/feature.php?ID=1308

my sentiments exactly. I plan to look the other way now...

pretty good, but Interpol's material is starting to all sound the same - kind of losing that fresh car smell :roll: could easily interchange lyrics from that 200 couches song into this one
