Interpol To Admire

Our Love To Admire

Well, Interpol's latest offer 'Our Love To Admire' is very much still Interpol. This may be a pointless statement, but all of the New York band's attractive flair - Paul Banks' characteristic vocals, layering sparse guitar effects and marching drums are intact in the band's third full-length. Nevertheless they did expand their sound using piano, horns and handclaps in some tracks.

The album opener 'Pioneer to the Falls' does not rush the listeners in, it starts off slowly with melancholy strings and piano but gets bigger midway through and a awe-inspiring guitar solo near the end. 'The Heinrich Maneuver' is the perfect first single. Being one of the more fast-paced songs of the album, it is with much more pop and I love how the subtle layers blend so well that build towards the climax. 'Rest My Chemistry' is one classic Interpol track with the familiar simple, repeated guitar riffs over thrilling basslines. You can hear an experimental sound of Interpol in 'Wrecking Ball' where the band uses more strings and some ochestral sound coupled with Paul Banks' filtered-like vocals and mesmerising harmonies.

Our Love To Admire' will be released on July 10, 2007.
