4.0 excellentRudy K. STAFF | February 17th 12

Ditching the monochromatic cover of Primary Colours for the hazy water landscape on the front of Skying was
the best thing the Horrors ever did. I was never a huge fan of their Bauhaus image and My-Bloody-Valentine-
meets-Ian-Curtis shtick, but Skying takes all that and adds in a healthy dose of watercolors. The guitar tone
on this album is something Kevin Shields would be proud of, but it's their focus on thick, drug-friendly
grooves and a heavy dose of trippy atmospherics that make this a new shoegaze classic.

It's every band from the 80s that you loved, through the drug haze-laced spectacles of the Britpop movement, with a dash or two of classic punk thrown in for good measure. In other words, it's mesmerizing and a contender for album of the year.
