Following the success of their EP, TSOL released Dance With Me, a dark but fun record that introduced the world to Goth Punk. With influences ranging from Black Flag, The Damned, and Misfits, TSOL made punk a black and bleak statement of rebellion all over again.
One of the best examples on this disc is "Code Blue", a creepy and fun semi-anthem about necrophilia. The track remains one of TSOL's definitive tracks and is well loved by punk fans world over.
The production on the album is way ahead of its time. The vocals are harsh but melodic and painful at the same time. The guitars give unmistakable punk speed to the mix, and the bass gives it that definitive goth sounds. Songs like "80 Times" "Sounds of Laughter" and "Code Blue" are probably some of the most amazing punk anthems ever recorded. The power and emotion in the songs sends chills down my spine.
The album is great because it features the explosive vocals of original frontman John Grisham, who left the band much later. Not sounding like anything else at that time, TSOL gave influence to millions of bands including The Offspring, AFI, and Danzig, and their songs have been covered by the likes of Slayer and Anthrax. Combining disturbing lyrics with haunting but undeniably catchy hooks, this is a must own for anyone who loves punk rock.

You know with a cover that looks like it came from an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons undead monster manual that this album is gonna smoke. In fact, this is great So. Cal., early 80's hardcore punk, sped up and with a sound similar to the Germs ("What We Do is Secret"), the first (and classic) Bad Religion LP, etc.
TSOL's lyrics focus more on the dark side, however, and because of this they're considered to be one of the most important L.A. death rock bands, too, along with 45 Grave and early Christian Death. "Dance with Me" was TSOL's first full length album, and every track is a rocker. At its slowest, the album is mid-tempo; at its fastest it is about as fast as anything else coming out of the punk underground in the early 80's. The drumming really shines through on the album opener, "Screams of Laughter," and the closing track, "Dance With Me," which are two of the best songs on the album. This LP also contains the classic necrophile's anthem, "Code Blue," covered by so many since.

TSOL are tragically overlooked in the glut of early California punk bands. They never stayed with one style for long and some of their experiments just didn't work, but their best records are truly great. On the surface, this comes off as a california hardcore record in the tradition of the Adolescents, DI and Circle Jerks. All the characteristic youth, nihilism, and roughly melodic atonality are here. Closer inspection, however, reveals a starkly ambitious, gothic psychedelia struggling up through the primitive framework. Starting with the paranoia of 'Sounds of Laughter', through the necrophiliac 'Code Blue' and ending in the incantatory 'Dance with me', the whole record exudes a certain undead palor. They would pursue this sound even further on their next album, the equally brilliant (but much less 'punk') 'Beneath the Shadows', before sullying their names with mediocre glam metal. But this album still stands as a perfect middle ground between hardcore and death rock and should appeal to fans of the Misfits, 45 Grave and early Christian Death as well as classic california punk heads.
