Go and get yourselves Strange House, Primary Colours and Skying by this band, these are their 3 albums and are distinctly different in genre and get progressively better. I went to see the horrors a few weeks ago with a couple of friends and we walked out of the place amazed (Nottingham Rock City UK). Give em a listen and let everyone know what you think!

    huge fan of them. Seen them 3 times (once for each album). First time I saw them was in a very tiny bar and there were maybe about 100 people there. It was probably the weirdest/craziest show i've been to. Faris took someone's camera and started taking pics with it, went into someone's purse and took some gum out and ate it. He also took off my Phillies hat and then placed it on a chair and started singing to it :lol: He also went into the crowd and wrapping the mic cord around people and "shoving" people. some pics from that show.

    I was shocked out how much Primary Colours was different than Strange House, but it worked out well. The next time i saw them their act was completely different, more mellow. They played pretty much the whole album and then their encore was some stuff from Strange House.

    Love Skying and just saw them a few months back in philly :D Only thing that kinda sucked from that show was that they only played stuff from their last two albms. Was hoping for at least one or two from Strange House. I'm sure Skying will be in my top 10 albums this year. Love the song Endless Blue :)

    Same show in the UK, no Strange House stuff at all. But Changing The Rain is my fave from Skying. I need another album from them soon, especially the way they went with Primary Colours and Skying.
