Editors

The singer looks like ZooTV Bono, and sings like Ian Curtis + Morrissey + guy from Interpol (without sounding flat as a pancake, that is).

Anyone like them? What should I listen to? Yeah, i disregarded the thread for asking about where to start.

Sorry.

Didn't we just have an Editors thread recently? The Back Room is pretty good--it's all I have by them. Some of it's top notch while some of it's filler. But it's still good.

I think The Back Room is excellent. The latest one, while not as strong, is still very good.

Brilliant band who should be one of the biggest in the world.

There already is a recent thread dedicated to them, but you can never have too many Editors threads, a testament to how perfect they are at writing cracking songs...

Loved The Back Room, not overly impressed with An End Has A Start.

This thread should never die. These guys are GREAT!!! not good GREAT!!! If you have listened to An End Has A Sart and think its good... listen to it more because its GREAT!!!! I love these guys. I haven't been this excited about a band since, well, U2.

Watch the video for "Push Your Head Towards The Air" Just brilliant.

I had heard Racing Rats and loved it, and FINALLY got around to hearing the whole album. It's the next on my "MUST GET" list.

After reading this thread, though, it sounds like their first album might be even better.

I still think the first album is better, but since my last post, I've grown to like the new album more. A solid effort.

I used to like it better but the more I listen to the 2nd album I'm finding each track is a masterpiece.

The songs are more subtle
