Blood runs through your veins. That's where our similarity ends

As I mentioned yesterday, I bought 'The Back Room' by Editors when I was out shopping. Flash asked what it was like as he'd heard a lot about them....

Let me put it this way: if you like Interpol, then you will like the Editors. They sound exactly the same. Well alright, maybe not exactly the same - perhaps the singers sound a bit different: Interpol have a guy who sounds like an undertaker and the Editors have a guy who sounds like a pathologist.

Don't get me wrong: I love Interpol and this album sounds pretty good as well. It's just that the similarity is really striking. Still, as Interpol nicked their whole act from Joy Division, the Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen and the like, I suppose they can't complain too much.
