Our Love to Admire
(Capitol)
If you listen to Our Love to Admire ignorant of Interpol's former discography, you might think, "not bad." However, for followers of Turn on the Bright Lights and Antics, the new release will feel like a flat-out mistake—an album that simply exhausts what the band of 2002 had left. Besides a few tracks, such as the single "The Heinrich Maneuver" or "Rest My Chemistry," it might as well be a compilation of songs that didn't make it on the previous two records. In hindsight, Our Love should have been a venue to push the band forward in a new direction. That would have at least proved interesting if not necessarily successful.
