indie rock, the songs are all quite good but it is nowhere near as good as Skying, their previous album, disappointing

The Horrors made a very solid album. This isn't one that I will call a masterpiece but it is a rewarding listen.

I was close-but-not-quite on board with Skying, but I think they've finally gotten through to me with this one. Truth be told, nothing yet this year has really blown me away, but this is pretty good. Not Tame Impala good, but good nonetheless.

Gothically groovy and psychedelically hazy, this is how mainstream rock music should sound: squarelly produced to conquer the world!

Diferente, una buena banda se caracteriza por poder manejar y cambiar su sonido sin quitarles su escencia, Como las tradicionales intros que le ponen a sus canciones (Chasing Shadows),poco de shoegazing (Jealous Sun) y mucha Neo-Psychedelia (Falling Star, First Day of Spring)y un tema medio mainstream (So Now your know) De los mejores discos del año
best tracks: Chasing Shadows/ I See You / Sleepwalk

Less strange and peculiar, but far more touchable and cerebral than the records they´ve already made. Good job!

Absolutely breath-taking record. The intro is beautiful and one of my favorite tracks of the year.

Beautiful vocals and beautiful music. "Luminous" is a radio-friendly album with elements of indie rock,electronica,posp-punk and other genres!

Maybe the best album Echo & The Bunnymen/Simple Minds/Psychedelic Furs never made. This is a sound that's been mined constantly over the last ten years or so, but there aren't many other examples that do better.

Faultless. A revelation for British music

They're still horrible. Get it? Get it? What I don't get is the critic score.
