The Wild Beasts debut Limbo,Panto was my album of last year by a country mile. It was just so refreshingly vibrant and different. As a result I had sky high hopes for this album and could so easily been disapointed. I wasnt.

This second album is just incredible. It takes everything that was good about the first album (the swooping falsetto, the mournful baritone, woven guitar textures, intricate arrangements) and overlays them onto a set of songs that are, well, out of this world both lyrically and musically.

More relaxed and considered than the more frenetic pace of parts of Limbo, Panto this album just grows with every listen. Hayden has, if anything, increased his vocal range and Tom sings lead on four tracks. The guitar is part Marr, part The Edge and always melodic and moody as required.

I can tell you now no other album will come anywhere near this in 2009. Peerless as far as I'm concerned.

Two Dancers, follows quickly from Wild Beats' debut last year. The sign of a class act is a band that delivers on promise and believe me the promise of debut Limo Panto has been kept - with ribbons, kisses, bells, whistles and the incredible sound of a band soaring: Two Dancers.

Hayden Thorpe's falsetto is now an instrument of great emotive strength. Lyrically there seems to be a theme of excitement and despair at the possibilities at the heart of the night. How two dancers (the name of 2 tracks as well as the LP) can meet, get togther, and tear each other apart.
Tom Fleming sings 2 or 3 songs (sorry I heard it three times last night and am using my memory) one of which listed a run of provincial British towns and the girls that can be found there. Think the polar opposite to laddism though, this is Queen Is Dead territory, v late adolescence turning into adulthood, beauty and despair and music to match.

Musically Two Dancers confirms Wild Beats as the boldest band in the UK.
You might well hear it on the radio, you might well not, whatever you categorically should hear it asap.

Just when you thought indie music had nowhere to go along comes an avant garde band from Kendal to kick new life into the genre. The music is imaginative with some excellent guitar work, especially on We Still Got the Taste Dancing on Our Tongues, which along with All the King's Men and Hooting & Howling mark the stand out tracks on the album, or at least the ones that are the most obvious singles. The catchiest ones if you like. But the lesser known tracks such as The Fun Powder Plot, This Is Our Lot and Empty Nest are also worth visiting again and again for their musical complexity and imagination.

The lyrics are ploughing the same social commentary furrow as the early Arctic Monkeys but with makes them stand out is the way they are delivered by lead singer Hayden Thorpe. His soaring falsetto is a thing of beauty and makes a nice change from the laddish sneer of Alex Turner. Secondary singer Tom Fleming also provides vocals on a few tracks (most notably All The King's Men) and his rich grounded baritone makes a nice contrast to Hayden's vocal flights.

The way the music is arranged in each song perfectly complements Hayden's amazing voice - never overwhelming it (could that be possible?)

The album concentrates on young trouble makers trapped in the smothering desperation of small town life, the joyless mating game, the bragging male who views women as birthing machines and dads without their kids. That doesn't sound like a barrel of laughs (and there isn't much if any humour in the songs I'll admit) but Hayden's and Tom's ghostly voices makes them unforgettable and haunting.

Equally elegant (the voice, the music) and ugly (the subject matter of their lyrics) as the say in Hooting and Howling just about sums this album up perfectly.

Like others I was pointed towards this album by the ecstatic review in the Sunday Times where Dan Cairns described it as a masterpiece - "A Mephistophelean melodrama, a night on the tiles, a lawless rabble of marauding ne'er-do-wells painting the town red with real blood and Kensington Gore". I went on holidays a few days later and the whole of this album now makes up the bulk of the "25 most played" songs on my I Pod.

Not that I was immediately drawn in by its charms. Indeed I badly misjudged this album for a fair number of listens. It all seemed rather eccentric, fey and ambiguous. A bit too much Anthony Blanche and not enough Charles Ryder. Was this yet another Smiths obsessed band spending far too much time reading Byron and Shelley? Is that the sound of Sparks that echoes through "Woebegone Wanderers" on their previous album which was the first song I ever listened to by the band? Again on the new album "We still got the taste dancing on our tongues" was another culprit that I detested (but now recognise as one the best on the album). The reason was probably Hayden Thorpe's voice and it certainly it will not be to everyone's tastes. The more you listen however to Thorpe's voice you note that it is not that much different from the great Billy McKenzie of the Associates albeit at a higher falsetto level, you can also throw Jeff Buckley into this mix and even Bono circa Achtung Baby ( a compliment as its the one U2 record that should be in every collection) . Listen to his vocal on "This is out lot" an outstanding performance which is simultaneously restrained and wild.
