“Looking Back At. . .” is TheMusic.fm’s new feature, wherein two critics take a look back at some of the new classic albums in the past decade (and slightly beyond) to see where they hold up nowadays, as well as re-reviewing secret gems, lost opportunities, flashes-in-various pans, and so forth.
To kick off the feature, I gave my two cents on Interpol’s 2002 debut, Turn On the Bright Lights. I am very proud to be a part of this new semi-regular feature, written in partnership with TheMusic.fm, and I hope you will enjoy this excursion beyond the Electric Comic Book.
Any suggestions on a ‘new classic’ album we should check out in the future? Tell us what you think in our respective comments sections!
