In This Light and On This Evening is the third studio album from British band Editors. It is set to be released on 12 October 2009. The band have said that the material will have a more raw and anthemic sound compared to their previous work and they would be correct in a way.
This album definitely moves in a different direction to any of their previous work. As with any band who changes the sound of their music, the decision has polarised opinions from fans who have listened to the album already. “Disappointed doesn’t cover it. I’m all for a new direction but that’s no excuse for forgetting how to write a tune” says one listener while another states that “electronic suits them perfectly! Actually, i’d say without a doubt that this is the best electronic effort made by a post-punk revival band ever.”
As for me? It definitely is different (which doesn’t bother me in the slightest, not like some people) but it does sounds pretty good on first listen which generally is a good sign. After a few more listens to it I’m sure I will love it.
