One of my best friends just scored A GREEN CARD and I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with this life.

Time for some first impressions on El Pintor

My opinion will obviously evolve with time as I’m pretty sure this album will grow on me, but here it is, after a couple of listens.

All The Rage Back Home: loved this track from the first listen. I LOVE the drumming on that one. That thing Sam does with the ride cymbal during the bridge is great. It’s almost flawless. Almost only because it fades out and fade out songs should never exist.

My Desire: I really like this track. It seems to be an instant favorite for many people (at least out of the three track they’ve been playing until now). I really like the guitar and melodic line on that one. Not a big fan of how the voice seems a bit muffled during the chorus?

Anywhere: Probably my instant favorite. I love love love the instrumentation in that song, especially in the chorus when it seems to drop all of a sudden. Floors me every single time. Paul’s voice is perfect.

Same Town, New Story: It’s a surprising intro, I quite like it. Sam’s drumming is top notch. I quite like that very rhythmic electronic beat at the beginning of the outro before Sam starts playing. I love that outro!

My Blue Supreme: Paul’s falsetto is going to need some getting used to, but I like that he tries new things with his voice. I absolutely love the chorus, despite its simplicity. It might actually be my favorite “unheard before” song.

Everything Is Wrong: With a title like that, I had high expectation… I love the guitar and drums but I feel like the drums could have been louder. I find the chorus a bit too repetitive.

Breaker 1: Not a big fan of the reverb with Paul’s voice here. I quite like the drumming and the guitars.

Ancient Ways: Contrary to some people I’ve read around here, I really like that song! It’s very straightforward with loud guitars and pounding drums. The drumming is surreal. It’s too short! It’s like the Interpol version of a punk song.

Tidal Wave: I love the drumming but the sound they put on it is a bit weird. I love how the verses go but think the chorus is not quite as catchy.

Twice As Hard: Gotta love this piano and guitar. It’s very reminiscent of S/T. The drumming is quite impeccable as well. But there’s like this filter on Paul’s voice again and it’s frustrating me a lot. Also why does it fade out!! Go with a bang, not a whimper. That being said, I love the harmonies and orchestration on that one, it sounds like Carlos indirectly inspired that song.

All in all, I find it to be a pretty solid album, with a distinct sound that takes as much from TOTBL/Antics as from S/T. Sam shows once again he’s a real driving force behind Interpol that is not to be fucked with. Daniel is as good as ever and I like how Paul tries new things with his voice. He also shows he’s up to the task of bass duties. However, I feel like sometimes the mix or production are not helping the songs too much and it irks me a little. I don’t know if it’s my headphones but I constantly felt like there was a veil of reverb on almost every song and that it was sometimes hard to distinguish what Paul said or hear all the instruments very well. The drums could have been louder on some songs.
This will obviously grow on me and I can’t wait to hear it loud on real good speakers!

Oh and this post was inspired by visualinfidelity.

What about y’all? Discuss!
