 Absolutely spot on. The moment is one of my favourites, captures what\'s so good about Interpol. The walking home to empty houses effect is exactly what this is about, I\'ve always associated it with cold winter nights in an empty city. I get a similar vibe off some of the National material - perhaps a Seconds on them sometime?

 Bravo, a great piece. It\'s unlikely Interpol will ever top this majestic song, probably one of the best tunes of the 00\'s. I get totallyl lost in that last minute-and-a-half every damn time.

 The song is a dichotomy for me: I love the song, yet despise the \"couches\" lyric that provides its climax. Few songs present me with such a situation.

 What gets me in the part where the song breaks away is how the bass comes in high, countering the two guitars, hanging with them for a bit, then when shoots back down low, signaling the drums returning and the ah ahs. It gives me shivers.

 Let me \'fifth\' that. The first article I\'ve ever read about exactly that part of the best song on an amazing album. The last minute and a half of Not Even Jail gets me in the same spot, too.
