Customer Review

on 18 August 2013
I have listened with pleasure to all of Editors music over the last eight years and have always found them satisfyingly unpredictable, and yet always thoroughly enjoyable. And this latest album is no different. I've been somewhat surprised by some of the negative reviews of this album, although tellingly even those who have berated the band for doing something different are still scoring them an average 4 stars (yes, it really is that good). My first listen was tinged with a worry that after the awesome 'In this light . . .' there was a risk they would get stuck in a doom laden rut, but no; in an album of love songs they still touch on death and the complexities of life in an intelligent and melodious manner. Standout tracks include 'What is this thing called love' where the lead singer Tom Smith proves that he really can sing, the foot-tappingly addictive 'Formaldehyde' and the wonderful album closer 'Bird of Prey'.
I can recommend this to anyone who is looking for an excellently produced, well crafted and intelligent indie rock album by musicians at the top of their craft. And hey, a little change is not always a bad thing!
