A Fine Mess is just that—scattered outtakes from producer Dave Fridmann's (The Flaming Lips) stellar work with the band from the previous year.

In terms of breaking new ground, it doesn’t get out of second gear.

A Fine Mess is a bracing and distinct entry in Interpol’s oeuvre.

Ultimately, A Fine Mess is a subpar offering that sounds like you’d imagine it to: a handful of B-sides with varying degrees of enjoyment, made worse by a myriad of problems.

What’s disappointing about A Fine Mess is not just that the songs are unremarkable but also that they don’t deviate from the band’s usual approach in any notable way.

They continue the proven sound instead of breaking with it.

Possibly their best post-hiatus release yet.

Controlled but sometimes a little frantic, heading for a familiar line on the horizon but taking the scenic route to get there.

Overall, A Fine Mess is another beautifully woven layer to the Interpol web.

A Fine Mess” despite not being a complete mess as such, is essentially just fine…no more, no less.
