i guess i just feel like each album is less and less instantly attention-grabbing than TOTBL. i haven't spent much time with their latest though, so if you recommend it, i'll give it some more spins.
Do. It's very different and maybe a little like TOTBL, definitely not "instantly attention-grabbing". It's been growing on me rather slowly but I love it now. It's my favourite Interpol record right after Antics and I spin it on a regular basis.
