It is nowhere near as good as the first two albums! It's as simple as that really!
The Horrors ditched the rock/punk type awfulness that was their first album! I was a bit apprehensive when it came to Primary Colours but my friend insisted that I give it a listen and I'm glad I did as I was very pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed it... Indie with hints of electronica! This is definitely a step forward for the band! Loved it!
