A Good Follow Up Album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An End Has a Start (Audio CD)
The Editors were a surprise discovery a couple of years ago - It was like finding some lost Joy Division material (a good thing). Their debut album was fantastic and I had high hopes for this one. On first listen I was a little disappointed as the songs here are not as accessible as on the first album, it is hard to pick out obvious singles.
On further listening, however, you discover some powerful songs with more depth than before. The two singles that start the album - the bizarrely named 'Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors' and 'An End Has a Start' - are both very good (and indicative of the album's style). Other highlights are 'The Racing Rats' and 'The Weight of the World', which sounds like it should be at the end of the album, but comes in at track three.
I feel that the best is yet to come with the Editors, but this album shows that they are certainly on the right tracks.
