I think it's a bit of both. Guitars replaced with synths. It sounds very close to Depeche Mode. "Papillon" is a
sonic example of this area. "Bricks and Mortar" melody reminds me something of Joy Division. The ghost of Ian Curtis sings "You were the truth when you lied..." on "You Don't Know Love". I'm not trying to say that I'm not
happy it sounds like it sounds. Guys did really good record here. I like it very much.

I'll be honest - A End Has a Start left me just a little underwhelmed after loving The Back Room, as it felt like a coda to the first album ('Smokers' notwithstanding) rather than a step forward.

Having heard the majority of these new tracks live more than once now, I'm pleased to say that this time Tom Smith and his merry (ok, maybe not so merry) men have taken two steps forward in one go. Analogue type synths everywhere giving recognisable song structures a fresh new twist.

There's no substitute for seeing this band 'live', as CD never seems to quite capture that indefinable something that makes them great in that environment, but this new album will be the next best thing. You might have already heard the lead off single, Papillon. If you haven't make every effort to do so - it's one hell of a song.

No doubt the usual 'sounds like Joy Division' knockers will be out again, and fresh accusations of jumping on the retro-80's bandwagon with the new layer of sound. So what? I'm old enough to have loved Joy Divison, Gary Numan et al first time around. EVERY band sounds like someone else one way or another - just accept these as a damn fine set of songs from a band who genuinely look like they might be able to adapt and stay around for the long term, which is a rarity these days.

Buy the album, play it loud, and if you can, make every effort to see them live.

Two years ago Editors delivered on the promise of their debut album with the phenomenal `An End Has a Start'. It was filled with a combination of Joy Division inspired atmosphere and tom Smith's brand of snarling vocals. It was a triumph. Now two years on the band returns with third album `In This Night and On This Evening' and the sound has developed again. This time around Tom Smith and company have taken their old Joy Division influence, put it through the blender added a seasoning of synths and gothic harmonies and branded the result with seven big shiny new letters E D I T O R S.

So this brand new monster starts in ominous form with the title track. It's all pulsing synth and gentle piano lines. Smith's vocals are like those of a witness at a trial all monotone and almost spoken. It builds gently for almost three minutes before a menacing distorted riff kicks in with a pounding drum line that compels you to pay attention to the chaos swirling around it that eventually returns to that pulsing synth. The second track then feels open and charming in comparison. It is lead by gently rising synths accompanied by a bouncing drum line. For the first time on this track you also hear the new addition of choir like harmonies on the chorus. Again as this track progresses it seems to build towards the end.

When you reach track three you are greeted by the familiar sound first single `Papillon'. Only one thing sums this track up and it's Smith's own lyric of "It kicks like a sleep twitch". This lyric seems to conduct the song as it develops from simple synths in the first verse into the chorus with its more intense sound and simple harmonies. This is a beautifully crafted song which even though six minutes long is demanding of your attention throughout. It's a fantastic listen.

I never got it before. I have often thought that I should like Editors but it never quite happened. I'd see them on coverage of the festivals and not quite connect. I just didn't get it. Now I do. This album is immediately involving and utterly likeable. It reeks of the 80's in the vocals and musically but it's of today. The Boxer is the standout track for me but the strengths of the melodies and hooks are evident throughout. I have now hastened back to "An end has a start", a brilliant album, and their solid debut "The back room". I'm hooked.

Got the album on the 12th October and had tickets to see them live on the 16th October so knew I had to play it over and over.

First impression was I liked it, after a few plays wasn't so sure, after listening to it for the 10th or so time I love it and hearing the tracks performed live just adds to it.

The new material stands up with the previous 2 albums and does sit well when intermingled in a live set.

Yes it is different and yes some of it is maybe a bit darker than usual. I applaud them for trying a new direction and as a big fan I am pleased to say I really love the new stuff.

And Papillon goes down an absolute storm live !!

i'l keep this review short ,editors have ditched the guitars that dominated their first two (very good) albums and embraced synths.smart move.sounds like violator era depeche mode with added new order.a new fresh sound and one of the years best albums.

In my opinion this can only be described as a triumphant return!

Its a departure from the Editors old stuff - but that doesn't make it any less impressive - Papillon is a great track and others on this are just as good.

A lot of bands are going down the synth path - Snow Patrols new one uses it in spades - for me this can't be a bad thing!

Loved it!
