    In.ter a.li.a is better than we dreamed it could be. Prepare to fall in love all over again.

    Noticeably less refined than the aforementioned masterpiece, ‘Pendulum In A Peasant Dress’, ‘Tilting At The Univendor’ and ‘Torrentially Cutshaw’ are part of a breathlessly jagged, abrasive, unruly and punk as fuck whole.

    Reinvigorated after a so-so initial comeback in 2012, and with their notorious fire burning once again, ‘in•ter a•li•a’ sees At The Drive In returning with an album that’s worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder alongside their revered back catalogue.

    If I hadn't heard ROC, this album would have probably gotten a half-star more, but as it stands it's just above decent.

    What makes that record sound so left-field is Cedric’s all over the place vocals and Ross Robinson’s infamously loud production.

    Inter Alia is a disappointing return to the saddle, expressed with awkward confidence and bravado by the band seemingly misremembering itself.

    Inter Alia sounds unmistakably bored with itself.

    I don't think you're going to get anything constructive from the critics (Critics have never been overly warm to AtDI anyway) just bashingI don't think you're going to get anything constructive from the critics (Critics have never been overly warm to AtDI anyway) just bashing this record. I'd go in with an open mind and give it a shot. This album ended up impressing me track-for-track. Cedric and Omar are exceptional. Expand

    Extremely surprised to see the aggregate score of 74. I was really REALLY impressed with it. Everyone sees art differently so no need toExtremely surprised to see the aggregate score of 74. I was really REALLY impressed with it. Everyone sees art differently so no need to bother trying to tell you why it surprised me far more than I expected. I do not want to limit things to being post-hardcore or alternaspazhigh-pitch. If you enjoy aggressive music with guitars, give this a shot regardless of what you may have thought about the band a decade ago. I definitely miss the vocals of former guitarist/singer and Sparta frontman Jim Ward. Expand

    So clean and vocal heavy. No bang and intensity. Absolutely zero noise and "weirdness". Cedric no longer yells and screams :(. I really want to like this album, but I just didn't.
