I've had some time to listen to this and it is an awesome album! Editors really grow on you!

It takes a little while to get used to the lead singer's unique vocals but it's the guitars that make this album great. Reminds me a lot of Edge of the Boy album. There are many good songs.

"If you Shout..." I think you're on crack with your assessment of this album. This is quickly becoming one of my favs of the year.

This album's greatness continues to grow like gravity.

Finding this inspired me to revisit the Back Room as well, which is also brilliant.

I only wish that the tour was coming somewhere I could see it.

It's funny how Interpol etc. are getting all the hype, but the Joy Division meets early U2 vibe of this record just digs in, and does its magic, and makes one want to listen over and over and over............

They're a new band for me -- mainly from the Desert Island 3 playlists. I like what I've heard a lot so far.

I have to admit though, if I'd never heard of Interpol, I probably would have thought this to be an amazing album. But when I listen to it now, I can't help but think about Interpol and how they're doing this a lot better.

I've got the album but haven't gotten around to listening to it yet. Funnily enough, my first exposure to Editors was through one of those complimentary CDs that come with the Q magazine sometimes - it was a compilation of whacky covers and Editors did a take on REM's "Orange Crush".

Good album. Good band. They remind me a bit of Interpol; tone of vocals and such.

Forgive the failed simile, Diemen.

Late summer in Tennessee, 'it grows on you' is dangerous territory, and I should probably pursue another poetic path or ....... we end up with:

It grows like a summertime poison ivy rash, like the tall weeds filled with chiggers and ticks.

This album has its hooks in me much more than the new Interpol, which is why it's funny that the Editors suffer as second-tier Interpol ripoffs.

But then, I still love my old Alarm, Simple Minds, and Waterboys records, discs that were hurt by U2 comparisons over and again .. . . ..

I finally got around to listening to this today. I wasn't sure how it would hold up to The Back Room, but I must say it is excellent. There might be better songs on The Back Room, but I think as a whole this new album might actually be better.

I just went through the album again and am loving it. Seems to have more of an atmospheric feel to it, to my ears anyway. Not quite as loud as some of the songs on The Back Room.

Great stuff.
