Best Of 2011: #17

#17 - The Horrors - Skying

No original review.

The first Horrors album was pretty good at first, but didn't age particularly well. Their follow-up, the game-changing Primary Colours, on the other hand, remains great. This one falls short of its predecessor slightly. Although it retains some of the psychedelia, it doesn't seem quite as awe-inspiring. Nonetheless, it has some brilliant tracks - the baggy opener Changing The Rain, the 80s-pop style I Can See Through You and the eight-minute beast Moving Further Away are all absolutely magnificent. It's by no means a bad album, but when your last album was Primary Colours, it's quite hard to match up to expectations; at least, my expectations!
