 Interpol: Antics: Pitchfork Record Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
There was nothing about Interpol's self-contained, visionary debut that might have suggested their subsequent eyebrow-raising catapult to fame, particularly given their aversion to the traditional single format.
Fortunately, the members of Interpol understand what other bands take for granted: Careers aren't necessarily made or broken by second albums alone, and an ideal follow-up needn't engage the perceived potential of a defining debut or consciously redefine a pre-established sound in order to be effective.
Interpol avoid common sophomore pitfalls because they refuse to engage the immense weight that surrounds this release, and their tenuous position between shrewd self-consciousness and diversionary costume changing informs this album's openness and plasticity.

“NYC,” originally released on the band’s self-titled EP, is a soaring ballad of conflicted emotions and an ambivalent tribute to the band’s native town.
On “PDA,” Interpol’s hammering rhythm section and Banks’ angry baritone confront a frustrated romance, and what emerges is quite possibly the record’s defining track, a number that is at once coldly insulting and remorseful.
What sets this band apart from its overhyped Seventies-rock-regurgitating contemporaries is that while bands like The Vines and The Hives are content to do little more than write tribute songs to their forefathers, Interpol strives to move beyond the oft-revered sonic battleground of the early Eighties and succeeds in creating something that is distinctly 21st-century.
