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 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.

Great balance of electric and rock and an album worth getting even if they have changed a little bit from there first 2 albums. The delexe edition is better as the second disc contains songs similar to their past albums

I'll update this in a weeks time as I can already tell after a couple of listens that this one needs more time, but I do feel it will become my favourite Editors album over An End Has A Start and even more so over The Back Room. The first track builds in a gorgeous way, really outstanding and by the second listen i was hooked. 3rd track the single, stands out above the rest currently only because of the airplay so i've heard it maybe 40 times already including the awesome Tiesto remix which I think does something superb with the song. Check it out on here Papillon (Tiësto Remix) There is another track on the album later on, could be track 8 which sounds awesome, maybe slightly numan or nin sounding. Great chorus hook which I could see as being the next single. Ok I'll leave that for now, but this is a great album so far, brilliant in fact, off to listen to it again and I'll update in more detail after the weekend.

Editors are a great band. While they at first seemed to be a British answer to New York's own Interpol, through their debut and followup albums, they became so much more.
And they turn out to be a band that can not only sound good through the hifi circuits, but can also deliver from front of house.
While there have been a spate of bands that have tried to redefine themselves on their third album with a new direction, that is often going to be a troublesome step.
I instantly recall Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Interpol. (or even Howling Bells and Noisettes with their 2nd albums!)
I'm no stranger to appreciating electronica based material. Some alt bands such as Idiot Pilot, Radiohead and White Lies seem to embrace newer technologies within the alternative music genre with aplomb.
However, this album to me sounded like it was made by a group of musicians that had just finished touring, had some time off to play with their cash, went straight down to Turnkey and bought a few Apple Macs, and started playing around with synths. The synth patches sound crude, obvious and underworked. This in itself is quite surprising, seeing as the album was produced by none other than Flood, the producer responsible for some of the best alternative electronica albums around including work by Nine Inch Nails, Erasure, Depeche Mode, The Killers and even U2.
I hope that the band members can spend a bit more time playing with synths and learning how to design some more clever sounds, as this album sounds like a half-baked learning project.
I'm still a big fan of Editors, I just know that they can do better than this. If they are going to flirt with electronica, I only hope that next time they've worked out how to use their new toys!
