are just in time for a cycle of throwback in vogue, filling the need of late eighties futuristic Brit-rock and John Hughes smoke-filled flashback montages. From the somber pastoral rock of the 60's, to acid-wash, to disco-infused, it seems time that one band should emerge to take the naughties spin on this specific slice of the twentieth century. Problem is, it's been done already many times... White Lies, for example. Good news is, Editors take the lessons of alternative rock between 1982 and now and tie them all together in a cohesive, compressed snapshot of the past thirty years. The trick is they do it like they are still in the eighties, subtle and undetected but ever-present, through the choices of synth to the arrangement of tracking.
