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!

Currently Help She Can't Swim could quite easily wear the crown of shoutiest band in Britain with ease and the arrival of their much delayed second album doesn't displace this, although there are signs of an evolution in both sound and writing.

The definitive Help She Can't Swim sound is boy/girl shouting over a frenticly paced guitars, drums, and keyboards all seemingly hell bent on reaching the end of the song first. Parts of the album keep to this formula and won't disappoint those familiar and requiring a new fix. "Midnight Garden", the single released last summer, and "All The Stars" are amoung the noisiest and provide the usual thrills. Elsewhere the pace simply isn't as manic as their first album and there definately seems to be tighter more focused playing and a few gentler moments - although that's relative in the world of Help She Can't Swim.

Overall the key ingredients are there and I have to say that one thing this album proves beyond doubt is that I wouldn't like to make an enemy of female vocalist Leesey Frances...
