Taking Interpol to task

Julian Plenti's side-project and all.

Truth is, you could easily begin spinning Julian Plenti Is…Skyscraper, disregard the album cover ‘n liner notes, and easily think that it’s the new Interpol record. There’s very little in terms of real difference between the two and, using that eyes-closed Pepsi challenge, you’ll probably end up in my voting booth: it’s better than Our Love To Admire.Oh, okay. The drums are bigger in the mix, the guitars less refined, and the rhythms a bit more skanky, so who am I to question why this direction wasn’t pursued by the band as a whole instead of solo Paul Banks as Julian Plenti?
