    Editors are on a steady rate of decline, and The Weight of Your Love only solidifies that decline. Either figure out what sound works, or give it up guys.

    Boring, no inspiration, poor lyrics!!! People who like this album dont know what Editors were in the past. On this album, Editors pretend they are Coldplay... sadly! I can't stand this album at all!!! These guys need a break because everytime they release an album, since 2009, it seems they don't know what they are doing!!! One of the worst album of 2013.

    There are glimmers of the band that went before. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.130]

    There are a few thrilling moments here—notably the cinematic ballad “Nothing”--but the band mostly flounders as it seeks a new direction.

    No matter what mode they’re in, they manage to turn four-minute songs into small eternities.
