UK release, another buzz band from there in the vein of Joy Division,
Echo and The Bunnymen. "4 stars..stunning debut. Classy Stuff"-MOJO.
"Editors are a Birmingham based band for the here and now. If you`re a fan of Coldplay block your ears and look away now, you`re not going to like this record. The snarling aggressive vocals, edgy high pitched guitar action and violent drumming will be too much for you.Stand out tracks "Fall", "Camera" and "Bullets" are full of dark harmonies and haunting melodies, the latter being particularly reminiscent of Interpol. There are some wonderfully menacing choruses: "Blood runs through your veins, that`s where our similarity ends" (Blood), "You`ll speak when you`re spoken to" (Munich).. The excitement, energy and passion on display here dismisses any lazy comparisons to Joy Division and Echo And The Bunnymen. This album grabs you by the scruff of the neck and demands your attention. This widescreen rock will soon be filling the biggest venues in the land"-BBC. "The Back Room is characterised by thick, prominent basslines, insistent drums, twinkling guitar and a baritone voice - hardly a new idea, but when done right, is also one that never seems to get old. Editors have got it right every step of the way.. it`s an album of consistently high quality from start to finish.. The Back Room is up there with the best of this year`s debut albums, and that`s no mean feat in 2005."-MusicOMH.com.
