The Editors' The Back Room is one of my favorite albums of the 2000s. Drawing heavily from the legendary Joy Division, the album is a post-punk masterpiece that had Editors being compared to the likes of Interpol and Bloc Party.
Since then, the Birmingham quintuplet have released two more albums that strayed from their indie blueprint, introducing synths and creating a broader scope to their sound. This leads us to new single "A Ton Of Love."
Similar to Kings Of Leon, Editors have come full circle, venturing into stadium rock territory with "A Ton Of Love." While the guitar riff could have been lifted from Echo & The Bunneymen's Porcupine record, the uplifting chorus is straight out of the U2 handbook, minus Bono's social commentary. A little too glossy for my liking, "A Ton Of Love" is still a well written tune that's a definite grower.
