08. Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights (2002)
It's still so damned hypnotic. But really that's just a laundry list of words you're supposed to use to describe Interpol's beguiling debut. Truth is, they have no subtlety. All that atmosphere was really part of the big, lavish show the band was putting on for us. Which is fine. With Turn On The Bright Lights, though, when we first met them, all that quiet and all that dark blended so gracefully with all of those wonderful riffs and nonsensical lyrics; what were we to do but fall in love?
