FILTER Grade: 74%

With the departure of founding guitarist Chris Urbanowicz, Editors clearly felt the need for a reinvention. This new set still possesses the majesty and moodiness of earlier efforts, while finding new inspiration in late ’70s and early ’80s Springsteen, REM and The Cult. (If you don’t believe the latter, listen to “A Ton of Love” and Sonic Temple back-to-back.) There are a few thrilling moments here—notably the cinematic ballad “Nothing”—but the band mostly flounders as it seeks a new direction.
