"The title rhymes with bulldozer, and the morbid Brit post-punkers’ graceful final album sees arachnid synths augmenting pitiless guitars and drums. Ian Curtis does a fine impression of a man abandoned by everyone, including God. Interpol think they sound like this. Standout track: “Isolation”"

Favorite Lyrics (13 music items)

"Heart and Soul Written by Ian Curtis Instincts that can still betray us A journey that leads to the sun Soulless and bent on destruction A struggle between right and wrong You take my place in the showdown I'll observe witha pitiful eye I'll humbly ask for forgiveness A request well beyond you and I Heart and soul, one will burn Heart and soul, one will burn An abyss that laughs at creation A circus complete with all fools Foundations that lasted the ages Then ripped apart at their roots B"
