First Editors purchase - and a little disappoining
on 12 July 2013
This is the first "Editors" album I have bought, though I have been meaning to check them out for a while. While there are tracks that I think are great, there are a few too many other tracks that are a disappointing. This leaves me wondering whether or not it is worth checking out the earlier records.
Perhaps I should have been warned off by existing reviews that said this was not as good as the previous records. But I couldn't get "A ton of love" out of my head after watching their performance at Glastonbury (on the TV - unfortunately). So I ignored the reviews and shelled out close to £10 for the CD.
There was one big warning sign about this album: two CDs, the second with just a handful of tracks. It's nearly always a bad sign when a band can't make up its mind what tracks aren't up to scratch and has to put out a 2CD pack with the second CD less than half full.
