Wild Beasts have made a record of earthly pleasures that sounds thrillingly widescreen, open and in awe of life; equally intoxicated and disturbed by the possibilities of pleasure.
'Two Dancers' is a streamlined, minimalist and user friendly Wild Beasts, moving as God had designed them to, with equal grace and gusto, equally elegant and ugly.

The thing that's so compelling about 'Two Dancers' is that it really is a cohesive album. Many pay lip service to the idea of the album in an age of downloading, but here is one where to skip a track feels like sacrilege. From the propulsive, Blue Nile-ish beauty of 'The Fun Powder Plot', a deft exploration of the rage of fathers denied custody, to the almost Panda Bear-like lullaby 'Empty Nest', each feels like a dream-like, disconnected scene in an abstract play you don't quite understand but that touches you in strange ways - NME 9/10
It's another gorgeous album, which seems to be the work of a band maturing in a sensitive and uncompromising way rather than feeling obliged to banish their quirks in pursuit of greater success - Uncut
it's difficult indeed to not sing the praises of 'Two Dancers' as loudly and proudly as possible. It's a massive step forward from their debut, and a record to remind all that Britain is capable of producing musical mavericks like no other nation - Clash 9/10
