Editors - The Back Room

Have any of you heard these guys???
Fans of Interpol should check these guys out immediately.
The album was released on July 25, 2005 so is basically brand new. Inevitable comparisons to Joy Division and Echo And The Bunnymen are riddled throughout most reviews as they were with Interpol. It's all true. But I take that as a positive thing. Check these guys out and tell me what you think.

I recently heard of them/read about them somewhere. Dont remember what I read/heard though. Thanks for mentioning them, I'll have to do some more research.

I've heard Blood and Munich on woxy.com(thanks to popmofo for posting that Architecture bit now I'm hooked on woxy.com). They are great, instantly one of my favorites. They are like Interpol but with a bit more funk in the hips. I don't think the album has been released in the States yet at least I didn't know it was if it is out. I've been looking for it but I'm not willing to pay $30 to import it.

I think they're okay, but I always get them confused with the Engineers, whose album I like better.

I've had the album a couple of weeks now and having listened to it a few times I quite like it. I still think the singles are probably the best songs on the album, but that's not to say the other tracks aren't worth a listen too.

So the album was finally released here in the US (on March 21st) but I still can't find it anywhere! Guess I'll have to break down and go the iTunes way...

I've been totally addicted to Munich these past three days but I'm looking forward to getting into the rest of the album.


For those of you that have had a lot of time to digest the album... how is it holding up? Still listening to it?

Saw Editors play in Philly over the weekend. Good show, nothing spectacular. I've had the cd for a few weeks and it's really growing on me.
