Editors - The Back Room - *A great gamble!*, 21 Sept. 2006
Living in Norway, I do not always get to see the biggest singers/bands live in concert. The Editors, however, were set to come to a small venue in Oslo. I had never heard of them, but gambled on buying the album.
The Editors took me a few listens to get the feel of the music, but it turned out to be a great gamble. The music, in my opinion, is a great mix of Coldplay, Keane, The Raconteurs, and Razorlight sounds. The music is a lot of loud guitar and drum sounds, accompanied by a mysterious dark voice of the lead singer.
The music is very catchy, especially live. It is full of life, and very energetic. If you need a taste, listen to 'Fingers In The Factories', and 'Bullets'. It seems impossible to listen to these tunes without singing along, or at least tapping your foot to the beat.
The Editors are quite unheard of outside of the UK, but are a band that could easily compete in the top 10 of the album charts in years to come.
Buy the album, and get hooked!
