Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights
Pitchfork has reminded me that this album just turned ten years old.
Jesus. Charlottesville. Washing out of a Ph.D. English program. The sheer insanity of the Bush years. Having no idea I’d end up in South Korea.
On the whole I’d have to say it’s been a good decade for me. And that opening track — goddamn, that still packs a punch.
