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.
Quirky, Eccentric, Funny and above all an overdue antedote to the Indie Formulaic British Bands and Billie Holliday/Dusty Springfield wannabes.
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.
At first it was the weirdest music I was not sure of but my God! I am so happy I found them and I will be buying all their albums from now on, I even had to replace this album as I lost my disk from taking everywhere.
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!
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.
