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.
