I remember listening to classic tracks by Editors such as "All Sparks" a few years ago, but never really gave a try listening to full record. A few months ago I went back to Editors, only to discover more than expected.

This third album was very different indeed. At times you think it's a completely different band(this one is much more synthetic, while the last 2 albums were very guitar driven). I did enjoy some tracks at an instant, like the obvious single Papillon and the strangely cool Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool. But the more i listened to it the more I enjoyed it. It was a grower, now I think the entire record is a masterpiece.

Tracks:

1. In This Light and on This Evening - 7/10
A good way to start the album, amazing build up, lovely vocals. And then it releases with noise and guitars. Only complaint is that the climax could've been a bit shorter, or at least more evolving.

2. Bricks and Mortar - 6.5/10
Didn't enjoy this one that much at the start. It has some nice sounds, and some annoying(background beat). Now I think the track works. Some might like this one while other may not. I think it could've been shorter but it's still pretty cool.

3. Papillon - 9/10
Pure energy, it's a hell of track. Cool sounds, cool lyrics, deep voice. Hard not to love. Far more pop'ish than the other tracks, but still fits in very well.

4. You Don't Know Love - 9/10
Great song, an interesting observation of a character who grew out of love (would be my guess). Nice build up, catchy, amazing electronic and guitar sounds, perfect length.

5. The Big Exit - 8/10
This another track that had to grow on me. It's a dark tension builder were you need to be in the mood.

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.

I wasn't intending to buy this album, but at the price it was a steal and I had really enjoyed their first album with all the Joy Division influences. Okay, there is still very much a Joy Division influence on this but I guess if you are going to steal, steal from the best. And Editors have something uniquely their own too - they are much more upbeat than JD ever were. So don your Joy Division oven gloves and give this a listen. First track and title track "In This Light and On This Evening" is one of the standouts, impressive singing, great atmosphere and disturbing, vaguely threatening lyrics ("I heard the earth inhale..."). The next two songs are maybe not quite as good but maintain high standards. Fourth track "You Don't Know Love" builds in intensity with washes of synth and great harmonies, anthemic in a way that would not disgrace Depeche Mode. "The Big Exit", which follows, has powerful lead vocals, perhaps the best singing on the album. "The Boxer" is self-confident and insistent, like a track by Muse. "Like Treasure" builds and builds, slightly repetitive in an Arcade Fire vogue, I'll bury you like treasure sings Tom Smith as if singing a love song and this somehow makes it more scary than if he were doing an Ian Curtis impression. "Eat Raw Meat" sounds a bit out of place on the album and doesn't quite work, for the first time Editors begin to sound as if they are going through the motions and giving the fans what they think they expect. The final song on the album starts slowly, again with epic harmonies, we are back in atmospheric JD with a touch of DM territory, with swirling synthesisers and big drums. There may be nothing in the lyrics that demands such epic treatment but it ends the album on a high.

I first heard the Editors when watching their Glastonbury set this year and I was immediately impressed. So much so I went online and bought all three albums in one hit. This has some awesome tracks on it and shows the style of music perfectly. They have an almost grandiose, big electronic sound to them and have been compared to some bands of the eighties and there is definitely that element to their sound, but they also sound fresh and modern as well and the lead singers vocals are unique and fit the music well. The most well known track is probably `Papillon' which is also one of my favourites on offer here and the one that really caught my ear when I was watching them on TV. `Bricks and Mortar', as noted by other reviewers, is reminiscent of The Terminator theme music but I really enjoy it, maybe more so because of this! There is an energy about this album and I can't help but feel buoyed up after listening to it, even with the odd slower track in there as well. If you are a huge fan of the early albums then this may not appeal as much as there a lot of synths here compared to guitars, but if you enjoy this then you can go easily go back to those early albums and appreciate them all the more after knowing where they lead to. This is just an evolution of the bands sound and style. All in all this is a good album ,with some great tracks on it and a big sound to put a smile on your face. Well worth checking out.
