Album Review
Lead single ‘Magazine’ twitches and struts with Depeche Mode electro-rock bravado, clearly assisted with the brutal edge of collaborator Blanck Mass. ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’ takes things one step further to an almighty industrial stomping climax that you’d expect to hear on a record from Nine Inch Nails, Muse or Lockey’s former band Yourcodenameis:milo.
While the title track and ‘Belong’ also simmer with a caustic but expansive electro pulse, it’s not all dark and mechanical – there’s equally as much humanity and light. ‘Cold’ is a U2-worthy triumph, begging for fields of swaying arms and lighters aloft, while ‘Darkness At The Door’ is the closest Editors have and probably will ever come to an ‘80s power ballad – and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
‘No Sound But The Wind’ is a re-worked version of a fan favourite, having previously been on the soundtrack to ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ in 2010 and curiously becoming a No.1 single in Belgium, but never released elsewhere. It’s an aching but hopeful lament to marching on against the odds. It seems only too fitting then that in this incarnation, it’s part of the record that could well bring Editors back home.
