“An incredibly powerful and affecting album”. (9.5) Pitchfork’s #1 album of 2002
“One of the decade’s great guitar epics, demanding rapt attention for 49 expertly paced minutes.” — Rolling Stone, Best Albums Of The Decade
“In 2002, we released our first album, Turn on the Bright Lights. We had waited close to five years for the opportunity to record an album. Needless to say this was a memorable moment for us. We never had any expectations for how the album would be received. We just wanted to present our music as an album to
anyone who would be open to hearing it. It was incredible to finally tour and see people react to these songs. We never could have imagined that the album would have reached so many people throughout the world.
We spent a good deal of time this past year digging through our archives and asking others to dig through theirs in the hopes of uncovering some forgotten material. The result of our hunting and gathering has yielded this Tenth Anniversary Edition of Turn on the Bright Lights. We wanted to do something special for the fans who have always supported us. We wanted to do something special for the best fans in the world.
We hope you enjoy it.”
Ten years ago, Interpol’s debut album seized the imagination of a generation. The spare, lean textures, darkly oblique lyrics and suave stage presence were entirely different from the bands who preceded them on the charts and the radio.
Now fully remastered in a beautiful deluxe hardbound book with unreleased photos and a second disc of bonus tracks, many unreleased, plus the demos and B-sides and a DVD.
