One of the best albums ever.

I love this album so much! The brooding atmosphere and bizarre yet brilliant lyrics complement the sometimes jaunty, sometimes melancholic guitars and unpredictable and exciting drum-work.
There are no weak songs here, in fact such a concept seems absurd to me after listening to this catchy and mischievous record. The production on the album has to be some of the best I've heard, with repeated listens revealing new quirks in the lyrics which can be hard to decipher and new layers of emotion and sound. It's sonically exciting, in other words.
Most importantly, each song is chock-full with hooks and memorable moments and everything sounds dynamic and surprising. It's their debut and still their best.

This is simply stunning.I have had it on repeat for so long (years) and still find new depths inside those sexy guitars.Possibly the best record they have done although the other 2 are pretty special too.
Buy this now.

This album has got to be one of the best i own and i think few debut albums manage to pull off such confidence and sophistication as this one. Every track is a gem and just keep getting better with each listen. I really cant recommend it highly enough, deserves to be known as a modern classic.

Simply the best Interpol album, despite the rather good efforts of 'Antics' and 'Our Love To Admire'. There are many amazing songs on this album, the best being the chunky 'Obstacle 1' with striking guitar riffs juxtaposed with the smooth yet exciting bass line whisked out by the suave bassist, Carlos D. Buy this album, not only if youre a fan of Interpol's work, but if you love music. Possibly a fruit in anyone's staple musical diet.

5 stars! I know!
I'm not the kind of guy to dish out the best score possible just becuase I happen to really like something this week. 5 stars is such a risky thing to do, because you're saying that NOTHING can be better than this. You're saying that this is the best anything can possibly be and nothing will ever be better than it, ever.
So, am I saying that? you know what? I think I am.
I've given out a fair few 4 star reviews. Klaxons, Forward Russia, Franz Ferdinand, and if being honest about it, I love this album more than any of the records I gave 4 stars to. It really is a record that will hold up for a long time as being a supreme slice of modern music.
Every track brings something to the overall piece. Obstacle 1, NYC, PDA, Stella Was A Diver... These are the stand out tracks on a stand out album.
There are hooks a plenty, guitar/keyboard harmonies that will leave you close breathless, bass/drum combinations that will have you jumping around the room like a madman, and lyrics that are simple but not obvious.
With an overall sound that is aimed at getting you to feel the music as much as your supposed to be listening, this album is one of my favourites from a band that truly know what they are doing, and what makes great music.
Joy. Utter Joy.

If you like alternative rock then check tis band out. There isn't one dud track on this album and their follow up "Antics" is equally as masterful. A must for all music lovers.
