Interpol - Turn On The Bright Lights
This is one of my favourite records to listen to on vinyl when I'm at home. You don't have to worry about skipping songs, side a, it's all great, turn over to b, it's all great. It's very rare that you find records that you can listen to all the way through like that. The first time I heard this I was like 'wow, this is the greatest record'. There is a very romantic feel to the songs. Obviously the Joy Division comparisons were coming right away but I soon got over that and heard them for who they are, they really have their own voice and I dug it. I think it really captures the spirit of New York. I grew up listening to a lot of British rock and pop music, and when I heard this it gave me vibrations from that.
