    I've heard a lot of comparison between the Stills and Interpol and to be quite frank, I never made that connection. "Logic Will Break Your Heart" is a decent enough album. It has some good songs, "Animals and Insects" is quite lovely. But all too often "Logic" just melts together with songs that sound exactly the same, particularly in the middle third of the album.

Where Interpol benefit from over-production, The Stills seem to long for the lo-fi production that The Strokes enjoy. Interpol also have a certain... finesse, that the Stills do not posses. Expand

    The opening tracks sound promising but the rest of the album is completely forgettable. I have this CD in my car so I listen to it nearly everyday, but for the life of me I can't recall a single track.

  1. The Stills' excellent debut album, Logic Will Break Your Heart, is a stunner, a rush of shoegazer guitars and suave lover-boy angst.

    The Stills succeed at distilling their influences into an inviting update. [24 Oct 2003, p.105]

    There's plenty of regret and "emotional disgust," but it's applied with piercing guitar lines that resemble a soppier Interpol. [Mar 2004, p.112]
