On their 2002 debut, New York City's Interpol released a masterpiece that drew heavily from their post-punk ancestors. You can hear the influences of Joy Division, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Bauhaus in their music... with a modern twist.

This combination of great things old and new makes this record one of my favorites of all time.

"Untitled" starts off the album, with its echoing guitar parts and simple, yet profound, lyrics.

"Obstacle 1" is next, followed by "NYC".. a great soundtrack for the seedier parts of the city.

Next you have the rocking "PDA" and "Say Hello to the Angels".

The band slows it down again with "Hands Away", but then rock harder than ever with "Obstacle 2" complete with its killer bassline.

"Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down" comes next, followed by "Roland"... two more post-punk foot tappers.

Arguably the prettiest song on the record, "The New" is next. The album then closes in perfection with "Leif Erikson".

If you haven't heard this album yet, pick it up ASAP and find out for yourself what all the buzz is about.
