    In "An End has a start" e soprattutto in "The Back Room" è la chitarra lo strumento più in risalto, mentre in questo album viene relegata in un ruolo marginale, sovrastata da synth danzerecci e/o cupi. Il risultato è un album molto diverso rispetto ai 2 precedenti, in cui il genere dominante è un synth/rock in pieno stile Depeche.

    I love this album. The synths add to their dark sound and I think that this is a good balance of guitars and keyboards. The first time I listened this record, I was a bit disappointed, it's completely different from The Back Room and An End Has A Start, but time after time I discovered that this album is really great.

    IDK why on earth this record has been met with poor reviews and fan recption. This is their best album and Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool is easily the most epic and worthwhile thing the band has ever produced. i for one recommend this album.

    Cambiaron varias cosas, como las guitarras por sintetizadores, Tom Smith siguió cantando con sentimiento y comprobaron que no necesitan ser una copia de Interpol (como muchos los llamaban) para hacer buenas canciones, aunque pueden mejorar aun...

    Definitely a change in direction for the band on this record and this has to be admired even if it doesn't go all their own way. Overall, it's got good solid tracks on it without too many stand outs. The song writing by the band is very good and the production is done very well. It feels like it was recorded in a factory and reminds me of the Terminator soundtrack in parts.

The problem with this record is it's probably turned a lot of people off them and it will remain to be seen if anyone will still be listening when they resurface. Expand

  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.
