Interpol – antics

just copped a listen to the new interpol cd ‘antics’ and was really blown away. it made me pull out their first album which i had not listened to like for 4 months now. in my opinion the new one is better and more character-defining. in the first one they were trying too hard to sound like their record collection which consisted mainly of the entire recorded output of joy division and the great english lost band the ‘chameleons’.
on this one they come into their own stretching and expanding on the old formula and managing to sound fresh at the same time. ridding themselves of studied mannerisms they take flight with great urgency and they are mighty close to the sun.
