‘The Weight Of Your Love’, Editors fourth studio album and the first to feature new members Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams is, according to lead singer and songwriter Tom Smith, ‘a band record, a musical record, a rock record with a foot in that alt-rock / americana world’. Inspired by Scott Litt’s work with REM amongst others and built around a live ... Read more in Amazon's Editors Store

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unbelieveable Album 15 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
I cannot stop playing this CD - every song is a massive leap forward from The Back Room. The first thing you notice is the 'size' of the sound - more expansive and widescreen than the debut, with lots of piano and backing harmonies. Tom's voice, too, has developed into something really special.

1. Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors

A great opener. A big rush of drums is joined by piano & vocals which then develops into a massive sound - crashing hi-hats & guitars.

2. An End Has A Start

Begins with a keyboard & bass drum, developing into Editors' seminal sound. Tom sings 'There's a devil at your side but an angel on her way'. Great chorus and guitar riff.

3. The Weight Of The World

A quieter track, as showcased on the recent tour. Uplifting chorus.

4. Bones

Probably the most typically sounding Editors track on the album. Could easily have slotted onto The Back Room.

5. When Anger Shows

Another quieter track. Nice use of keyboards and the way the drums 'step' into the track. Uplifting chorus with great guitar riff.

6. The Racing Rats

Possibly my favourite track on the album. Piano & guitar with digital delay effects then develop into a full-on massive chorus 'If a plane were to fall from the sky, how big a hole would it leave in the surface of the earth?'.

7. Push Your Head Towards The Air

A delicate track with acoustic guitar, vocal harmonies & piano. Possibly Editors at their most intimate, with Tom's voice not as you've heard it before.

8. Escape The Nest

Stunning intro which develops into a massive guitar riff & drums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent 12 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely my favourite album for a long time.

Editors have been a bit of a slow burn for me, I didn't know whether to like them or not because they sounded like Joy Division, but eventually decided that wasn't a bad thing.

I found myself rushing out to buy this the day it came out and wasn't disappointed, I keep listening to it and still love it.

It's definitely a bigger sound that the first album, which I like, and there's a lot of emotion in it - some of the songs made me want to cry, but in a good way, and I can't think of any other album I could say that about.

Although about roughly eighty to ninety percent of my music collection is heavy metal/rock (I have said it before, I am no music elitist snob), I will always like the odd indie/alternative rock band here and there, Editors are definitely one of those bands.

Since I bought this on its release I haven't been able to stop listening to it and it has got better with each listen (although it is almost always this way with me), there is not one bad track on this and not one album filler, trust me when I say this is not one of those first half excellent and second half album fillers type, this is in my opinion indie/alternative rock at its very best. If you like their debut album THE BACK ROOM then you will know that it had plenty of those can't get out of your head tunes and lyrics and they have done it again with AN END HAS A START.

There is something about Editors that stand out from the most recent indie bands, they may not be the most popular but I predict that in about ten years from now, if Editors are no more then I will look back at their music with the same fondness as I did with one of the best and most underrated indie/alternative rock bands of the 1990's, the brilliant MANSUN. I will admit that a lot of the songs on this sound similar but when the tunes are this good I really couldn't give a flying circus. OUTSTANDING INDIE/ALTERNATIVE MUSIC.

Just one more thing, I agree with the person that said avoid this special edition version as I don't know what is supposed to be so special about it, don't be ripped off, get the original and cheaper version instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album - poor special edition 26 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
The music's great, the whole album has one great emotional track after the other. But stick to the normal price CD. The Special Edition is just a card sleeve. Rubbish, no lyrics, no artwork. Looks like they forgot to include something - like an extra cd or dvd!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost but not quite 26 Jun 2007
By David
Format:Audio CD
This album is easy to enjoy but has a few faults for me that stop it being truly exceptional.

Firstly it follows the common practice of being front loaded.

Why is it that so many artists producers and record companies feel the need to put all the best songs near the beginning or on side one if it is a vinyl record?

Secondly in an effort to make the lead singers voice even more massive than it already is the vocals have been turned up in the mix.The trade off however leaves the bass on the light side.

Considering it is the same producer who did the recent Bloc Party album and indeed the same studio too,I dont get this.

There the vocals were big but decent bass too.Not massive,just good weight to keep the balance right.

Here on An End Has A Start, apart from the track Bones, the bass is markedly noticeable by its absence.

The Back Room has more bass weight although the overall sound level is not so loud due to the boosted vocals on this album.(Do a comparison if you dont believe me and also listen to Bloc Party too)

And thirdly and finally,that last track Well Worn Hand.

Just cant get into it I`m afraid.It might mean alot to the singer about his friend getting killed etc,but it doesnt mean anything to me as a song.

So I now have to finish the album on Spiders which while not being bad is nowhere near as good as an album closer as Distance from the debut.

All in all then good album but it doesnt blow me away like the first one did.

On the other hand though maybe I`m being unfair in expecting any band or artist to do it to me twice!
