I would say I'm a fan of Editors. I have the albums, I've seen them live a few times and they have made it onto my (rather limited capacity) iPhone. However, I think the trouble with Editors is that you have to be in the right mood to listen to them, singles such as "Munich" get by on their own but straightforward Editors album tracks have a time and a place. 

"You Don't Know Love" has the feel of an album track. It fits in perfectly on the fantastic "In This Light And On This Evening", the latest long play offering from Editors, but as a single it struggles to find it's place. It's use of synth has an oddly Killers feel to it, although with Tom Smith on vocals it's impossible to not know who made this track.

In short don't buy this single. It doesn't bring anything new to table as far as Editors songs go. It's a decent track, there is nothing wrong with it, but you might as well get is as part of the album.
