Default Editors

For the third time in my life here on earth a band has given me multiple orgasms. Yeah OK it sounds like the cover of the Sun, but its true. Their first three singles have been jaw-droppers (if you look carefully there’s a jaw-groove on my bedroom carpet…If you look even closer you’ll see other stuff, so don’t) and Munich has to be one of the tracks of the century thus far. If I can get through the album without erupting from the inside out in a bizarre pleasure-induced implosion it will only to come back and write threads on every song decrying their brilliance.

So, anybody else having the same palpitations, or are these just another low-class Joy Division tea-leafers?


Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go keep Kleen-ex in business…

sorry to talk sour grapes but i think everything they havedone so far sounds exactly the same. i wouldnt say they rip off division as much as interpol but lets just say their hardly original.

The Editors are playing at the Oxfordshire Truck Festival lovie, along with The Magic Numbers and a few other decent bands. Gosh, I do hate people who don't like bands because they sound like other bands...

No, because it would be impossible for every single band to sound completely different. Anyway, if you like the sound of one band, why not like another because it sounds similar?

because sometimes i cant help thinking the band sounding like the other band have no creativity of their own. we all like music for different reasons and personally im a big fan of originality. that doesnt mean i dont like completely cloned bands- i dig interpol and the subways after all.

hmmmm..listening to them right now on nme.com ( and someone said it's a sucky-suck website...tisk tisk )....and i have to reluctantly say they sound exactly like interpol ( well their first album anyway )....interpol are being accused of sounding too much like joy division but i have to disagree, their sound is a lot different from joy division...but these guys rip off interpol in such a fashion it's criminal....
still it's descent stuff.....maybe it's a slow burner... like arcade fire....so far i wouldn't say i'm blown away like i was with interpol.....maybe that will change...

I'm bumping this thread to get opinions on the new album, In This Light And On This Evening. I was very skeptical when I heard the band was leaving their traditional sound to feature more synth/electronic influenced music, but after hearing the album I really can't complain. To me they went from sounding like Interpol to sounding similar to Depeche Mode, which I can't really complain with. I will say the title track on the new album is hands down my favorite song they've done, just that little plinking bass in the background with the deep vocals over it was great (at least for me).

This is the only Editors thread I could find (there were threads with discussion about Editors but this was the only thread devoted specifically to Editors).
