Interpol's brilliance comes in sparks these days. Every album after 2007's Our Love to Admire, when they stopped being a fascination of indie culture writ large, does have a couple of straightforward thrillers on them. Even their self-titled record's "Barricade" might stick if you let it. "The Rover" was fine, too, although the album it was on, last year's Marauder--a loose concept album about saying goodbye to the band's heyday in the early aughts--was less so.
