No sign of "difficult second album" syndrome here,
This review is from: Primary Colours (Audio CD)
Rarely do I get an album and then play it all the way through several times a day for days on end, which is what I'm doing with The Horrors follow-up album. From start to finish this is a top album. Yes the influences are there for everyone to see, but so what? I like the fact that there's a song which sounds a bit like David Gedge from the Wedding Present singing for My Bloody Valentine (Three Decades) and that the final song (Sea Within A Sea) has a keyboard style influenced by 70's German music. These two tracks are my favourites on the entire album. There are traces of the old Horrors style left, most noticeably on New Ice Age, but the guys should be congratulated for not producing Strange House MKII. Unless someone else comes up with an absolute stormer of a record in the next three months, I can see Primary Colours easily being my album of the year.

Spot on with that "Gedge sings MBV" comment. Thanks for the chuckle! And I agree, it's a very good album (though I do get a Proustian feeling of being back in the moshpit of the Liverpool Royal Court, sometime in the 1980s...).
