That is such a quality tune! Noit really into the first album but I'll be buying the second one on the basis of that tune! It's whopper!

Its a psychedelic Joy Division meets Suicide by way of Jesus & Mary Chain


The quite awesome Sea Within a Sea

That song does nothing for me, and it's usually not a particularly good sign when you can pinpoint the band's sound to a T by citing their influences.

You're missing out, it's a great album. Very rewarding.

Why? There's nothing wrong with having influences, most of the bands in the indie scene, including some of your favourites, have brazenly obvious influences.

Anyway, i knew this wouldn't receive too many responses; it's the horrors, too fad for the mature listener. Shame, it's a fine album.

I just saw these guys live tonight. Utterly boring. They had no variety or personality. Next.

I just listened to "Sea Within A Sea" and I'm completely taken aback by the sheer idiocy of the early fandom of this band, and the tremendous improvement they've achieved. I gave "Gloves" a listen and the look of the band in their early days made me want to punch them all in the face. Seriously, I don't think I've seen such a change for the better.

Seriously.

Yeah during their early years they were very much style over substance. But going from that to Primary Colours is one of the biggest improvements I've seen any band make, it's hard to believe it's the same band. Skying was an improvement again on Primary Colours and was one of my favourite albums of 2011. They're actually making the music they want to make now rather playing up to an image.

They basically went from this


To this


To this

So they went from a slightly interesting noisy sound to a completely boring mainstream load of nothing.

Well done Horrors.
