As if they never went away, Birmingham's Editors return in double quick time to remind us just why they are THE singles band of 2005.
Whilst not being as immediate as 'Munich' was, 'Blood' follows in the footsteps of both its predecessors in that sure enough, the musos out there have something to moan about. No doubt spotting the odd Peter Hook bassline here or an Edge (U2) bottom stringed A# there, but regardless of any reference points from bygone days, the Editors' sound is distinctive and instantly recognisable.
Surely if that isn't the sign of a potentially great artist, then what is?
