We've heard it all before of course. Doomy post-punk with epic production values and lots of echo. Birmingham's Editors recall, variously, Echo And The Bunnymen (on the swirling guitar shapes of 'Lights') and Interpol (just about everything else) but still add value on a splendid set of songs. This is largely because frontman Tom Smith is blessed with a voice that soars with heartfelt honesty and behind him are a group of well-drilled musicians driving the songs as far as they will go. They already have a couple of riveting, intense singles to their name courtesy of 'Munich' and 'Bullets' and these are backed up by the almost as good 'Fingers In The Factories' and 'Someone Says'. Yet Editors' real calling cards are their slower, more considered songs. The soul-baring is in evidence on 'Camera' and 'Fall' but by the final two songs they have mastered that art of richly textured atmosphere and songwriting which rivals not only Interpol but also comes near to emulating Joy Division's 'Closer' in terms of emotional power. And there aren't many recommendations which come higher than that.
