3.0 out of 5 stars Love and Hate 1 July 2013
By Adam Finn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
'The Weight Of Your Love' is the fourth studio album by Editors.

Prior to the release of their 2005 Mercury Prize nominated debut Tom Smith (lead vocalist) et al. had spent three years cultivating an identity to do justice to their bold and captivating sound. Spearheaded by Smith's grandiose vocals the final inception of 'Editors' was to be an anthemic runaway success for Kitchenware Records; follow up records two and three were both chart topping albums in the UK guaranteeing sell-out concerts and headline festival slots.

You can sense the collective sigh of relief in the opening track. Following their electronic departure In This Light And On This Evening (which is in itself an excellent detour) it seems they've been diverted back to their roots; 'Weight' is a blistering opener reminiscent of their earliest work, yet richer and fuller in sound. The beats are noticeably classical in form allowing Tom's voice to cascade alongside the strings. The synergy of love and and death is a sinister approach that is well suited to Tom's ominous brooding voice. And so to the lyrics are earth-shatteringly epic: "Strike down on me" resonates at the end of the track as the instrumentation is pulled abruptly.

Cue the waspy bassline and lush lead guitar of 'Sugar', a sweet offering, again generous in atmosphere and sufficient in a certain cursed inevitability of love. 'A Ton of Love' is happily enough well groomed for the stadium.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real grower 7 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
I agree so much with those reviews that say this album improves with listens. I have all their albums and this is definitely the most consistently good across all tracks- their first two albums had stand out songs but the odd song you would skip. Their third, IMO, was not my favourite - at it's best, stunning (You Dont Know Love/The Boxer) but the extra tracks being noisy horrible affairs in contrast. This 4th album is much better- just a pleasure to listen and every track a masterpiece. You can tell it's been we'll honed over a longer period. My favourites being Sugar, The Phone Book and the bristling pop song Formaldehyde. Least favourite probably the slightly plodding Bird of Prey- good song but the drum track is a bit monotonous - could do with more breaks and work. The extra tracks are well worth buying- three v good strong melodic tracks + two instrumentals which add to the originals. There have been some good new CDs this year and this is one of my favourites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing change of direction 18 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have listened with pleasure to all of Editors music over the last eight years and have always found them satisfyingly unpredictable, and yet always thoroughly enjoyable. And this latest album is no different. I've been somewhat surprised by some of the negative reviews of this album, although tellingly even those who have berated the band for doing something different are still scoring them an average 4 stars (yes, it really is that good). My first listen was tinged with a worry that after the awesome 'In this light . . .' there was a risk they would get stuck in a doom laden rut, but no; in an album of love songs they still touch on death and the complexities of life in an intelligent and melodious manner. Standout tracks include 'What is this thing called love' where the lead singer Tom Smith proves that he really can sing, the foot-tappingly addictive 'Formaldehyde' and the wonderful album closer 'Bird of Prey'.
I can recommend this to anyone who is looking for an excellently produced, well crafted and intelligent indie rock album by musicians at the top of their craft. And hey, a little change is not always a bad thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album yet. 8 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album takes a few listens and then it really sticks in your mind. Initially it is hard to get past the first three tracks which are excellent but then you discover the rest of the tracks. Favourites are Sugar, Formaldehyde and Bird of Prey. I have all of their albums and have seen them live in their early days and I am compelled to go and see them again on the strength of this album. One of my favourite releases of this year along with Frightened Rabbit and Daughter.

First off i have to say, i was worried this album was going to a disaster.However iam pleased to say its fantastic.One poor track, track four.What is going on there?.Without doubt every other track provides pleasure to the ear buds.Strings horns trumpets all adds to a polished body of work.Invest in the deluxe addition,worth the extra couple of pennys.Looking forward to see which direction editors take next.
