Biography

Wild Beasts’ Present Tense is a dramatic new album. Gleaming and sparkling with the most intense of 1980s and 1990s electronic sound rethought and retooled with exquisite detail for the 21st century, it doesn't sound like any boys-with-guitars band you've ever heard. And despite the coherence of its sweeping song structures, it wasn't wriIen so much as meticulously ... Read more in Amazon's Wild Beasts Store

Without doubt the british album of the year.
Quirky, Eccentric, Funny and above all an overdue antedote to the Indie Formulaic British Bands and Billie Holliday/Dusty Springfield wannabes.
SENSATIONAL!

When I heard Elbow's "The Seldom Seen Kid" I was convinced I wouldnt hear a better album all year. I may now have to revise that opinion because this album is simply breathtaking.

Swooping vocals, irresistable melodies, layered arrangements and (finally) a lyricist to match Morrisey for kitchen sink melodrama tinged with ambiguous sexual yearning. The falsetto vocals may not be to everyones taste but its not just this that stands this band head and shoulders above their contempories. Its the sheer bravado this band have, at points it sounds like the songs will collapse under the weight of disparate ideas. But, thrillingly, they have the talent to come back from the brink. Its a roller coaster ride that mocks tired guitar bands following the Coldplay blueprint. There are more ideas in the first track than Coldplay, Keane and Snow Patrol have mustered in their entire output to date.

I rarely get excited by new music nowadays but I cant praise this excellent album enough. Dive in.

The first Wild Beasts album I bought was Two Dancers, which I bought following their performance of All The Kings Men on Jools Holland. Two Dancers was not immediate (none of the best albums are) but soon became an all time favourite of mine. I approached Limbo Panto with trepidation, however, due to reviews suggesting it's was even more eccentric than Two Dancers. Boy am I glad I took the risk!!

I think the fact that I listened to the slightly less eccentric, less brash second album helped with getting to grips with Limbo Panto. Songs like The Club of Fathomless Love or Woebegone Wanderers would have been much less immediate if I hadn't been 'broken in' gently to the Wild Beasts sound with Two Dancers. The two abovementioned songs are excellent (eventually) but the standouts include The Devil's Crayon, His Grinning Skull, Please, Sir and She Purred, While I Grrred. In all honesty there isn't anything which comes close to a poor song.

The musicianship on show is phenomenal. There are so many layers to the Wild Beasts sound that you will discover something new with every listen. Vocally, both Tom and Hayden are on top form. Overall, I prefer Tom's voice to Hayden's (listen to The Devil's Crayon!) but that is my personal preference. Hayden's vocal during Please, Sir is as equally brilliant.

In summary, Limbo Panto is a brilliant album that has rendered the rest of my record collection pointless! It really is that good and will stay in your cd player for months after you've bought it.

There are two albums I've badly misjudged on first listen this year. One is the truly sumptous and incredibly 'Fed' by Plush, which I stuck on one evening when washing the dishes. And the other is 'Limbo Panto' by Wild Beasts, which I attempted to listen to while doing some work at the kitchen table.
Suffice it to say that both of these albums (but particularly Limbo) will REALLY hit the spot if you give them your undivided attention. The Wild Beasts simply don't work as background music - the singer's incredible, soaring falsetto (with a bit of gravel whisked in for extra effect) will simply grate unless you surrender yourself to it completely.

The arrangments are mostly stunning, with beautiful warm sounds on all the instruments, and the songs themselves are attractively put together and laden with hooks. Not quite sure what the lyrics are all about but it's all very mad and bubbly. And bombastic too, so if Sparks, 10CC and the more over-the-top early Queen albums don't press your buttons, it's probably best to stay well clear.

A distinctive, character-full album. Dive in and enjoy, but stay off the washing up!

I came to Wild Beasts first through Two Dancers then the sublime sensuousness of Smother [which has got to be 2011's album of the year.] So I thought I'd better give their debut album a go as I'd missed it first time round, and boy am I glad I did.

You can see now that the opening rack- Vigil for a Fuddy Duddy- with its effortless complexity and three cleverly synched movements, is probably one of the most confident calling cards any band has ever achieved. Then onto the music hall theatricals of Club of Fathomless Love, before falling headlong into the bonkers pop of The Devil's Crayon, and you very quickly realise this debut album is putting you in a very special place indeed.

The quality continues without any let up for the rest of the album and one is left utterly uplifted by the whole sequence of songs; not something that can be said for many of the new bands to have emerged over the past five years or so. An absolute tour de force.
