5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 22 Jun 2007
This review is from: An End Has A Start [Special Edition Digipak] (Audio CD)
A big progression to bring mainstream appeal - and that's what this band deserve - compared with last album Back Room think of Rush of a Blood to the Head compared to X&Y - bigger, more powerful, more clarity, tighter production and most of all stronger melody.

Smokers is a predictable 1st single - very Snow Patrolly sounding but much stonger melody and depth - good time to release it just before July 1st England smoking ban (not that it's anything to do with that).

My pick of the tracks after a few listens....

Title track An End Has a Start is a great song - typical Editors and needs to be a future single. Cracking guitar.

Weight of the World is unbelievable - on first listen brought tears to my eyes for some reason - the chorus is fantastic - poignant and powerful - my favouite song of the year.

Racing Rats - great how this song moves along - stupendous!

Push Your Head Towards the Air - this is marvellous sounding very Coldplayesque...

Think mixture of Embrace/Coldplay/Snow Patrol with Divine Comedy vocal.

Great mix - this is the top album of 2007 for me so far.
