This is EXACTLY what the youth of today need - escapist fun from Southend's finest gothabilly misfits. Forget all your regular indie kid nonsense - it's time for The Horrors to 'stake' their claim right through the heart of the listening teenagers out there. Referencing 'alternative' (as it used to be called) bands that should have disbanded years before this band was even born, they bring a malevolent sense of fun back into pop - and a long-missed overdose of make up and hair products. Think The Cramps meets The Damned meets John Cooper Clarke meets Eighties Matchbox B Line Disaster meets Bauhaus meets L'Oreal. And why? Because they are worth it.

this is a fantastic album.
after the first listen you may dissmiss it as a gothic mess, but after a couple of listens and closer inspection of the lyrics you'll find that even the most fickle indie or pop purists will find somethind appealing in the cackling guitars or stabbed organ.

a great fun album.

not genius, but if you thought it would be you're looking at the wrong band altogther

I was really hoping they'd be as good as they look and in fact they are better. Great obscure cover version of Screaming Lord Sutch track. Ace keyoards and guitar. Vocals a bit Vanian-like but all the better for it. They sound raw enough to be 60s Garage Band, and yet (also like 60s garage bands) you know they are well brought up lads who love their mums! I'd recommend this album - thoroughly enjoyable.

So what if they are taking the piss with the black clothes, dyed hair and all that? I bought this album and listened to about 3 songs before putting it in a draw for about a year, like many people will have done, because it sounded really emo-ish to me. About 6 months ago I started listening to it properly, and now Count In Fives and Thunderclaps are two of my favourite songs. A first brilliant album.

What makes this record so amazing isn't so much its total non conformity with everything else currently going on in British music (although that is pretty brilliant), but the fact that it's a great album on its own terms. Menacing, deranged and utterly thrilling throughout, it's a record that stands up to other great debuts such as 'Songs The Lord Taught Us', 'Psychocandy' etc. Anyone who references an also ran like Eighties Matchbox simply doesn't understand The Horrors on any level.

Dirty rotten speed addled pop tones that need a different vocal style to make them as truly great as the 60's garage pysche bands they look up to. I bought this the second day after it's release after much deliberation. It's definately a kick in the teeth to all things safe and indie these days - bloc party dullards and all that - and the music does sound good, all nerve shredding psychotic guitar and organ, rumbling bass and manic drumming but then the singer pops up and does his thing all over it. Live I can imagine it makes more sense whereas on record you long for a cooler yet still reckless voice like Jeffrey Lee Pierce of the Gun Club or like Nick Cave. Really grates after a while and I had unwanted images of the Damned popping up. As a debut album from a much hyped fashionista band (the seeds sown at Southends very own Junk club where you could spot many a pretentious fashion victim prancing like a self conscious thing) it's not half bad and I was expecting it to be a lot worse. Count In Fives appears to be the best track as well as the slower She Is The New Thing. Good sounds on A Train Roars and nice nod to VU's The Gift on Excellent Choice. There's a lull towards the end what with the too long Gil Sleeping (he must've been as someone forgot to halt it just after the 2 min mark)and goth by numbers Thunderclaps. It'll be interesting to see where they go from here - cult obscurity or bigger things.

Damn shame it came out the same day as the far superior Grinderman album. Well past middle aged men showing the skinny boys how it should be done. You gotta be more sexy and primal with your scuzzy grooves!

6 out of 10.

best live band ive seen in a while, just full of so much energy and amazing stage presence, its hard to capture there chaotic live sound and get it on disc but i think theyve managed it, ignore the nme reader who gave them 1 star, its nice to see a band doing something different thats not like all the other "nme bands"

Now THIS is what I call music! Alt-rock with a sense of humour if it has to be categorised. Recommended
