I mean, I'm not saying Interpol totally sucks.

TOTBL has some really charged moments on it. Musically, it was one of the more interesting things happening in 2002.

Then again, in 2002 I was doing drugs in the suburbs with rich kids in vintage suits. College, eh? Hah.

But seriously, "Untitled" could be a Fugazi song. Easily. "NYC" is really smooth musically. The last minute of "PDA" is fantastic. "Stella..." is classic too. But the lyrics are just trash, and it's such a blatant imitation (and a poor one, in that it does not succeed in sounding like them) of Joy Division and the Cure, and late Wire and all the other post-punk godfathers.

They just don't bring anything new to the table. I've heard good things about their 2010 release, but haven't bothered buying/downloading anything since Antics.

I'm not against them, but I CANNOT BELIEVE pitchforkmedia called TOTBR the best album of 2002.


...
And yes, the White Stripes are awesome. This is a fact. If you don't believe it, see them live (with your time machine). If you love rock n' roll, you love the Stripes.
