4.0 out of 5 stars A strong record, 21 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Skying (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the strength of reviews in magazines like Mojo and Uncut and I have to say, the good reviews are entirely justified. The sound of the record is huge, expansive and just 'grooves' in a way few other band do in 2011. The influences span across the decades, you're able to pick out The Doors one moment, Stones Roses or Primal Scream the next and maybe even a bit of Teardrop Explodes. But through all this The Horrors still manage to have a fresh and exciting sound. Favourite track has to be 'Still Life' - that base part is infectious and I love the line 'the moment that you want is coming if you give it time'. Other standout tracks include 'Endless Blue' (which has an amazing breakout after a beautiful intro) 'You said' (Pure Euphoria) and 'Moving Further Away'. For me, the only other British band that come close at the moment are Kendal's 'Wild Beasts' with their album Smother - two strong contenders for album of the year. But if you like music to warm your ears and make you feel like you've just taken something, listen to this and let yourself go. Excellent.
