I think it's accessible to the extent that it's pretty much what you'd expect from his earlier releases. Richard D. James album, etc. was fairly challenging when it came out, but music has evolved to the point where people have gotten used to it. There was plenty of that kind of shit around by 2002 or so.
Songs get boring quickly.
Really misses that one thing that made Interpol great.
I give it a 7/10.
look at question 11 in this interview with him: "I selected the tracks of the album and made it pretty accessable. It’s one of my pop albums, so I kind of know what kind of reaction it will get.”
Unbelievable flop after demonstrating how much potential they had on the previous album as a reconstructed band.
