New album is great. Shaping up to be one of my favorites in 2009.

I love the album and think that its a masterpiece. You can tell that its a big departure because there a some people that just can't handle the new sound and wrote it off with a first listen. Too bad that they will miss out.

I've listened to the new album three times so far. It's good to see them try a different direction, it was needed after their first two records, unfortunately they forgot to write memorable songs to go with their new sound. Tom Smith's vocals are still great, Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool is bloody fantastic even if the album version doesn't quite match the intensity of the live video posted a while ago, Papillon is pretty good, the rest I'm finding totally average I've had a similar disappointment with Yeah Yeah Yeahs this year except that this is way worse.

Hope you come to enjoy it more...

Bricks and Mortar keeps growing on me, and I got very excited by The Boxer today like I never have before. Probably listened to the album about 20 times. So goood...

Like Treasure should be the second single....

The bonus disc isn't bad, particularly I Want A Forest and My Life As A Ghost. Worth checking out...

Not sure I like this album as much as the last two, but I'll wait until a few more listens before providing final judgement.

Oh my, they were special on Monday night, absolutely amazing, I adore everything about this band....

YouTube - Bricks and Mortar by Editors live at The Palace Melbourne 04.01.10

This closed the main set and blew my mind, I'm actually visible here, in the second row, the fanboy I am...the song of 2009, what stage presence Smith has...

YouTube - Like Treasure by Editors live at The Palace, Melbourne 04.01.10

...and Like Treasure was brilliant as well


Meanwhile, here's what scum had to say about the album of the year: Pitchfork: Album Reviews: Editors: In This Light and on This Evening

yeah, great review mate...

I gave the album a second chance and it finally clicked with me. Now I love every song.
The Boxer is my favourite song too.
