MikeLSep 28, 2006One of the best albums I've heard in quite a while. I really enjoy it.
SmithMay 23, 2007Probably the best debut by anyone since Arcade Fire's The Funeral.
EdgarApr 30, 2007Truly spectacular!
BertRAug 12, 2005A true grower. take your time. When In doubt: listen to 'munich' and 'fall'... a fine album.
GaboSMay 31, 2006INTERPOL INTERPOL INTERPOL! I'm tired of hearing the comparisons, Editors have a sound of their own and I hate those who say that Editors stole interpol's sound. Suddenly interpol created an already existing genre and sound? Every time a band comes out, it's likely that they will sound similar to someone else, what's original now anyway? When you compare more than simply listening to an artist, you can't appreciate the passion behind the artist's songwriting, lyrics and sound found in "The Back Room" in this case. "The Back Room" flows very well, almost every song in the album is succesful from start to finish. One of those albums you listen the whole way through...amazing. Only complaint is the ending track which seemed a "filler," other than that, great debut.… Expand
JorisSep 9, 2005J C I agree partly with Kreshnak, of course Interpol is what Joy Division would be in 2005, and echo and the bunnymen isn't a bad comparison at all too... but imho I can't deny that in a period that Interpol is a hype, a band that sounds exactly and I mean EXACTLY the same becomes a bit embarrasing. However you get over it eventually and when your open-minded enough you find a good cd with some very VERY strong songs like Bullets and Lights. Still Antics is better and Turn on the bright lights the best of Interpols trilogy ;-)… Expand
KreshnakKrakeAug 15, 2005It's a great pity that Editors try to copy Interpol this bad. I think a band should have it's own style. And i'm pretty sure Editors would be creative and inspiring if they would try to develop their own style. But they don't. Too bad. This band doesn't inspire me at all.… Expand
