EDITORS – Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors (CD & 2x 7″ Singles)

Kitchenware Records SKCD93 / SKX93 / SKX932: 18th June 2007
1. Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors
“I can’t shake this feeling I’ve got, my dirty hands, have I been in the wars, the saddest thing that I’d ever seen, was smokers outside the hospital doors”
2. An Eye For An Eye
“Sing to me one more time, touch this tired face of mine”
3. The Picture
“You look back at the picture, and realise things then were different, it’s not who you know, it’s why you know”
4. Some Kind Of Spark
“Run to the hills, live somewhere else, what kind of storm could flood a town, from where we are here, we can only look down”

‘Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors’ has got all the usual Editors elements, the shimmering Guitars, the Ian-Curtis-but-with-warmth vocals and of course a menacing Bass line. It’s perhaps nothing startlingly new but it is the best single that Editors have released to date.

The reason I’ve always loved Editors is for the quality of their B-sides (The two below are a couple of the best songs ever). Previous B-sides were so good that the selection of songs for the last album seemed insane. These three aren’t quite in the same league but they are still well worth having. ‘An Eye For An Eye’ features dark brooding Guitars and builds almost imperceptibly towards a dramatic conclusion while Tom Smith’s rich Baritone sounds almost operatic. ‘The Picture’ is a beautiful, echoing, and hymnal piece, while ‘Some Kind Of Spark’ is good but a little too close to Coldplay‘s ‘Talk’.
