5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any Interpol fan April 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
The "Interpol EP" was originally issued in June, 2002 as a "preview' of their debut album "Turn on the Bright Lights". Even though 2 of the 3 tracks on the EP would wound up on the album, it nevertheless is an essential CD for any Interpol fan.
"PDA" is one of the best songs from the "Bright Lights" album. It comes with a hard-driven, yet mesmorising beat, and the last 2 min. "outro" is genius. "NYC" is the most inward looking song (don't call it a ballad!) from the album, and the one that would give the album its title. "Specialist" is the last track, and the one that makes this EP, er, "special". The song is completely in line with the dark atmosphere of the album, and similar in energy to tracks like "PDA" and "Obstacle 1". (It is also a staple on Interpol's current set list. If you have a chance to see them live, don't hesitate!) Buy all means, BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Hundred Couches? July 8 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After hearing all of these new bands copping moves and fashions from people who could be their grandfathers I've grown a little sickened -- how many waifish boys in sharp clothes discovering vinyl for the first time can one take? But Interpol is changing my mind. Sure, they listen to a lot of Joy Division (and Galaxie 500, for that matter), but it all feels somehow renewed, rather than rehashed...I've been listening to the same three songs on this Interpol EP with increasing fascination. If the full-length meets the standards of these three songs, we just might have something worth getting ecstatic about.

This is fantastic Joy Division influenced pop from NYC, moody with high emotional drama and some really good songs. A few years ago a band a sound steeped in 80s melodic postpunk would not have been taken seriously (e.g., Stretch Princess). But with the emergence of bands such as The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Hives, and The Mooney Suzuki, the grunge/indie/emo logjam has finally been shattered. I eagerly look forward to the full-length in August!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for more than 3 songs Aug. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
Here is a band from NYC finally deserving of the hype that other bands have recieved (i.e. The Strokes, YYY's). Ok, so its not a bold new statement in music. It doesn't matter who your influences are when you write such great songs. So what if they sound like the 21st century answer to Joy Division. They beat the thrift store pants off supposed garage rock like The Strokes. So get this, or wait for the full length, either way, check these guys out
