Well done Horrors.
Judging by a lot of your recent posts you seem to be shamelessly labelling every band boring or some other variation. Just an observation by the way.

Their debut album was poor and most people who have actually listened to them seem to have the same view. Their last two albums were a significant improvement and most people who have actually listened to them would certainly agree. So yes well done Horrors.

I have said three bands are boring, not really my fault you guys at discussing them.

Well if you don't like the band then why bother posting in the thread? No point posting if you have nothing to contribute. It would be more worth your while to post about bands you do like and respect other people's opinions.

Doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of this site...?

A sentence long, snarky jab? Not really much a critical observation, and certainly not much of a counterpoint to the overall general opinion about this band.

Well, I kind of dig "Sheena Is A Parasite", but other than that the early stuff doesn't really grab me.

I was obviously not trying to critique them as a band. However, if I want to come on my favourite music forum and call an artist "boring" I think I should be able to do so without being asked to post elsewhere.

Also, I agree that their first album is poor, but it was slightly interesting for a semi-mainstream act, whereas their newest album is pretty much ready for radio Indie Pop that most of us must surely be completely bored of by now?

Maybe the second album is their best, we will see.

Their first album was terrible. If Skying is your idea of vapid mainstream music, then you should be bloody grateful for it, because my idea of vapid mainstream music is something much more egregious.

I did say mainstream indie music. Radio friendly nothingness.

It isn't terrible by any means, and whilst I am slightly thankful that bands like The Horrors and Foster The People are mainstream, I could do without.

Ah, see, where I live, the words "radio" and "mainstream" mean ultimately the same thing, as there are no listening options. Nothing like 6Music, for example.

Yeah, they are interchangeable words where I am as well, but we have Pop/Dance/RnB stations and Alternative Indie Rock stations, that parade bands like The Killers and new Kings of Leon as the kings of anti-pop... Pretty depressing.

The Horrors may sound reasonably cool to some, but they are basically part of the force fed indie radio diet.
