Originally a gift to my spouse, as it’s one of her favorites, it made a really good Christmas gift. Included are alternate and demo takes of album tracks, a DVD, and a thick book about that era of Interpol. We listened to Side B, and her choice for the track is Leif Erikson. New territory.
A strong album, but I was surprised at how flat the recording was in playback from vinyl. Not a lot of depth, or shine, but perhaps that was intentional or a circumstance of the recording atmosphere.
