Interpol: Antics

After "over" playing Take You on a Cruise the past few days, it was a logic choice to take a much needed closer look at the bands second album.

Unfortunately it's a rather bumpy ride listening through the album. Or maybe a "downhill glide" is a more fitting/accurate description. The album starts out with four brilliant songs, which make you start believing that you're listening to a potential classic.

Sadly there is a noticeable drop in the quality of the songs on the last half of the album. Not that those songs are bad, but they just leave you disappointed. The band should blame itself, because expectations had to be high after the opening four tracks.
Best songs:
1) Take You on a Cruise
2) Evil
3) Next Exit
