Another stunning album from Editors.....Tom Smith's vocal is just mindblowing.

Bricks & Mortar is one of their Editors' finest songs, deadset gorgeous.

Like Treasure has to be released as the next single, 'tis wonderful, and has massive commercial potential.

The Big Exit doesn't lay to rest the Joy Division comparions, Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool is stil brill, lacking the intensity of some of those live You Tube video clips.

Still haven't warmed to the title track, or You Don't Know Love, which seems like Editors in autopilot.

Walk The Fleet Road is a charmer.

Cracking album, a quality 43 minutes.

Pitchfork are gonna savage it.

Aren't they doing Festivals in QLD?They're doing Falls at Lorne and somewhere in Tassie.

They're confirmed for Palace Theatre in Melbs on Jan 4.

the lead singer isn't great... sounds exactly like the presets singer.

yeah, but I'd argue he uses his voice more effectively than Mr Presets Guy.

Personally, I reckon his voice is the best one going around at the moment. I would take hearing his vocal over anyone's. It soothes me, gives me ear orgasms.

just reading... this is from the fork's 4.9 review of an end has a start.

Quote:
It's a shame that premature commercial success has sullied Editors' creativity, because An End contains its share of bright spots. However, that "weight" Smith is feeling probably stems from a sudden need to bolster the band's sound proportionately with their massive fame, a move that a group like the Arcade Fire could pull off on a follow-up album, but not a Joy Division/Interpol/U2 cut-and-paste effort like Editors. In a perfect world, these guys would never escape the shadow cast over them by their predecessors, but they could at least do more than compromise them with mass-marketable bombast and arena posturing.
bunch of wankers! they must really enjoy trying to suck ass.

LoL, shocking review, they have no idea! Cut & Paste effort, my arse. Dunno how the chap managed to bring Arcade Fire into it...any chance he can get I suppose.

I predict the new album will get less than 3 from PFork, it's that good!

If you wanna know how the new songs sound without the synths:

YouTube - Editors - Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool (live at studio Brussels)



More acoustic versions on Studio Brussel's website:

it doesn't surprise me that he did. he probably had just finished him off, if you get my meaning.

i might get this album.

I haven't thought of the comparison but not that you mention it, yes I can see similarities.

I still think though that Tom Smith's vocals are really unique.

Papillon is almost camp, but I like it, somehow. It is a bit troubling they're heading deeper into 80s retro territory when the rest of the world is ready to move on from our 00s obsession with it.

Glad to see Editors are pushing ahead in a new diriection anyway because another album of piano + super-serious vocals + overdriven 20ms delay guitars and I would have dropped these guys in the Interpol Safe Disposal Bin for post-punk rehashes past their best by date.

I am addicted to this album, this band, and anything and everything about them. Can't wait for 4 Jan '10.

Mindblowing.
