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.
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.

I have always been a fan of songs with really twisted lyrics so I was naturally in heaven when I heard "code blue". Read morePublished on June 8 2004 by Anne Carr
This album is a mix of basic LA hardcore with a touch of goth/gloom that seperated them with other hardcore bands of the time. Great album. Read morePublished on May 18 2003 by SidChimaera
