4.0 out of 5 stars Swim or Sink?, 27 May 2007
This review is from: The Death Of Nightlife (Audio CD)
If you've listened to Help She Can't Swim's previous album, "Fashionista Super Dance Troupe", you know what to expect; sharp, angular songs accompanied with boy/girl singing/shouting. Humorous and urgent the debut LP is a record that forces you to dance and conveys HSCS's amazing live presence as well as a studio album can. "The Death of Nightlife" has been a long time coming (although they have released a couple of EPs in the meantime) and doesn't disapoint. When they could have altered their sound to fit in more easily with all your other indie outfits, they have stayed true to the raw, edgy songs that attracted their fans in the first place. Of course the final product is slightly more polished but this isn't a bad thing and the album is full of great songs, stand out tracks for me being the pulsating "Hospital Drama" and opening track "Pass the Hat Around" which pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the album.

If you haven't heard the band before, you might as well try this album as your introduction, you won't be disappointed!
