A Return to Form
After 2013's largely underwhelming Weight of Your Love and improving with 2015's In Dream, this is a return to form, and their best since 2009's In This Light... The change and lessons from the past two albums are still here, with more mid-tempo grandiosity. This feels a lot less adult contemporary than the others though, and reflects more of their post-punk and goth-synth roots. I feel with this album, they were able to match the best of 'Weight and 'Dream's best tracks (No Harm, Nothing, Honestly, Marching Orders) and combine it with what was good about early Editors.
Very average. You can do much better boys
They continue to impress
I have followed this band from the beginning and love the new album. Tom's voice is haunting and I've had the album on repeat for days. The album is electronic, dark, dance-y and lyrically great. Would love to see them live.
Love the new sound of the Editors

They are continuing from their last album and it’s great
What happened to this once inspired and vibrant group?
Not up to their historical standard

I loved this band since the first note of Munich. This spring, going to see them for the second time. Magazine isn't a bad advance single. But this release just doesn't do it for me. No stand-outs, nothing memorable. They've fully abandoned guitars for synths. Too bad.
I love this band. Most of their albums are not perfect the first listen, but have depth. This album is completely electronic and reminds me of Depeche Mode b-sides. Magazine was a tease. That was how I hoped the rest would sound. And it is pitiful that they put the track from the Twilight soundtrack on this. That song is too old to recycle especially on a 9 track album.
Surpised they have a new release coming so soon! Cannot wait to hear the full LP <3
Amazing first single!
Can't wait for full release! They have outdone themselves with evolving, yet keeping there signature indie vibes. I like the dabble in pop for them, even though I'm not a pop fan it is not bad at all.
