    While I do admire Editors for experimenting and trying something different, this is probably a too drastic change for my liking. There are a few good songs like "papillon" and "like treasure" but overall the change of directions has not paid dividends.

    This album is the third from rock band Editors, and for me, despite being decent, is my least favourite. "Papillon" is a fantastic and catchy anthem, which is possibly the best song ever produced by this four piece. However, there isn't enough on this album to support it, which is why to me, you would only buy the single as opposed to the album. Overall though, not too shabby.

  1. Editors have crafted a bold statement of intent, one that hopefully suggests a continuingly bold future.
  2. Their sonic departure won't be radical enough to put off fans, but the ultimate feel is familiar enough not to persuade any detractors. They may have taken a step forward, but they're still on the same street.
  3. They’ve possibly succeeded in alienating the casual fan with the brief moments of nastiness that are here.
