But, the difference between in,ter a,li,a and other comeback albums is that, even if it doesn't appeal to everyone, it has a clear message: they're having fun again. From the gargantuan riffs of No Wolf Like The Present until the controlled chaos of Hostage Stamps, the band sound like it never missed a beat. Considering that in the early years their live shows and albums were cocaine-fueled freakout fests, and these days they're clean from drugs, they still sound fine, even if a little less psychotic. And if you're coming to a new At the Drive-In LP in 2017 expecting a sequel to Arcarsenal or One Armed Scissor, you may be slightly disappointed. But if you don't, you'll find a consistent album of a band sticking to their guns, and doing it well. Maintaining what they started on Antemasque, Omar and Cedric haven't sounded that inspired and joyous at the same time for almost a decade.
