Editors: The Back Room (Fader)
release: March 21, 2006
rating: ****1/2

When I went looking for the press sheet for this disc, I realized it only came with the tour dates for the Editors and Stellastarr*. I could have went online and easily found the background info on this hyped band, but at that point I was like, you know what, screw it. This is going to be one of those new bands where I really don't care or need to know anything. I'm going in with an open mind, not even knowing what they sound like yet. Maybe the Editors are from New York City. Whatever, I don't care. Let the music speak for itself. So guess what. This is the first great record of 2006. I hope I haven't said that yet about another record. Cause this one really is. And if I did say that, then this is the first great record of 2006 that can compete with Kitchens of Distinction and Interpol. ps...Editors are from England. -Kenyon
