Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixer: Rich Costey.
  • Recording information: Electric Lady Studios, New York, NY; The Magic Shop, New York, NY.
  • Photographer: Seth Smoot.
  • Although many fans have been waiting around for Interpol to replicate the magic of their 2002 debut TURN ON THE BRIGHT LIGHTS, the band deserves credit for not overtly aping the formula of that album. On 2007's OUR LOVE TO ADMIRE, as on the group's sophomore effort ANTICS, Interpol endeavor to stretch the fabric of their classic 1980s post-punk sound while leaning toward straightforward pop territory. They succeed, to a large degree, thanks to a major label budget (the band moved to Capitol for this release) and a strong batch of material.
  • None of this is to say that Interpol aren't still rooted in the dark dramatics of Joy Division, the band's primary influence, as the gloomy, churning "Pace is the Trick" and "Wrecking Ball" prove. But the upbeat feel of "The Heinrich Maneuver" and the thumping groove and catchy hooks of "No I in Threesome" show a fresher-faced Interpol, as do the ambitious production flourishes of tunes like opener "Pioneer to the Falls." The album's nicest surprise comes at the end: "The Lighthouse" is a spare, emotionally affecting song, lovely and haunting, illustrating--as the rest of the album does--the band's continued ability to captivate.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.91) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "OUR LOVE TO ADMIRE is their version of R.E.M.'s FABLES OF THE RECONSTRUCTION....[A] solid, understated third album that digs in..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.66) - "The outcome is akin to an artistic explosion....They've crowded this album with unexpected rhythmic feints..." -- Grade: A-

Uncut (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[C]lean, sleek, armour-plated missiles, handling them all the time with an assured military swagger."

Alternative Press (p.162) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he sheer diligence and finesse they've nurtured into these rich evening anthems is as undeniable as the talent with which the songs are delivered."

CMJ (p.42) - "Interpol devilishly fuses their love for the macabre with richly textured instrumentals."

Q (Magazine) (p.84) - Ranked #15 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2007" -- "There were big, bold ideas in between to send Interpol Top 5 on both sides of the Atlantic."

to me, this doesn't quite measure up to the brilliance of the band's debut album 'turn on the bright lights", but there ares ome pretty good songs on here. if you enjoy the more indie rock side of the band that they display more on "antics" rather than the dark beauty on TOTBL then you should really enjoy "our Love to Admire". an overall good album.
