Why do we like this?

Certainly the falsetto crooning of Wild Beasts is not for everyone. But myself being a pretty big fan of the band Volcano!, I've taken quite a liking to this album. Packed with punch, It'll take you whirling all over the place.

I'm not usually one to pay attention to the lyrics of a band, but one can't help but notice the often crude words used throughout this album. Full of references to booty-calls

, puckered lips, and dim-lit streets, lead singer hayden thorpe has a knack for dueling with the guitar in a manner oft reminscent of the aforementioned band, Volcano!

If you like the track above, you'll no doubt get some small pleasure out of listening to this album full-way through. I can't say there are any stand-out-gems on it, but when all the tracks are brought together, it's rather quite fun.

"...those who like their pop arch, odd and romantically heightened will find two dancers a treasure trove. [it] reeks of well-read, middle-class lads gone bad, out on the lash and on the pull." - guardian.co.uk

"for many wild beasts are a (to use an ugly phrase) wtf? type band. their liberal use of falsetto twinned with a general demeanour not suited to the ruthless decade we live in made them an easy target for the haters and even easier for those looking for a band to fall deeply and madly in love with." - itsgettingboringbythesea.com
