The Back Room
Label: Play It Again Sam
The Editors' debut is very much a product of these post-punk revival times; it's also a rich CD whose "Munich" and "Lights" just may prove to be timeless themselves. Tom Smith's resonating vocals cozy up to a frenzied, atmospheric musical backdrop, creating a swirling, chaotic sound not unlike the Chameleons' or Adorable's. Contains the exclusive non-album track "Release."
