interpol record

just a quick link, courtesy of Ben, who directs his readers over to this enjoyably cutting review of the new Interpol album, over at his Silent Words Speak Loudest Blog. I've not heard it yet so shall reserve judgement for the time being, but my hopes aren't high. Like The Strokes, Interpol followed up such a good debut with a pretty shit record, although theirs was overblown and pretentious, too, something it took The Strokes an album longer to achieve. Perhaps they'll be back on form though, and Stylus are just being sniffy. Anyway - if I hear the record sometime soon I'll come back to this and see if it was a fair assessment.
