Interpol Interpol (Deluxe Version) on Limited Edition 45RPM 2LP + Download
Interpol's self-titled fourth album found the band exploring dark musical landscapes of layered depth and intensity like never before. In contrast to its 2007 predecessor Our Love To Admire, the 2010 effort also fits together as a full album cycle, a set of very different songs that thematically connect. From the highly melodic "Barricade" and "Lights" through to the snarling "Memory Serves" and the extraordinary triptych of connected tracks that close the album, Interpol had never produced work this emotionally resonant or packed with crescendos. Mixer Alan Moulder also brought the rhythm section back to the fore here, anchoring a thicket of orchestral sounds that brings to mind touchstones from black metal to ‘70s art rock, but always remains identifiably Interpol. Hypnotic, bizarre, always indelible, Interpol is the band's magnum opus reissued here in its deluxe version on two twelve inch 45rpm discs.
