I was with you until you used the word "classic." -E

Again, I think Antics is their peak but Bright Lights is a classic.

Antics continues to be the only Interpol album I can listen to.

Bright Lights lacks focus and direction.
Our Love To Admire is too self-conscious, tries too hard.

They nailed it on Antics and I have a feeling they'll never make as strong a record again. The songs, vibe, production, performances all came together perfectly.

Well enough time has elapsed to indeed hail "Bright Lights" as a "classic", better songs and more appropriate production than their others. Antics does indeed have some shining stellar moments, but as an entire album it doesn't envelope you the way the debut does.

I dig the Peter Katis recordings of this band. It would be nice if they recorded with him again. Anyone know if the permanently done?
