Two of these (the banjo-and-mandolin-contrasted "Killing Suite" and the droning "Help Yourself") feature former Mazzy Star crooner Hope Sandoval, and your appreciation of such is probably directly proportional to your nostalgia for "Fade Into You"-type atmospheric noir.

Freedman and Jimmy DeKnight) and "Whitewater" by Tortoise (written by Dan Bitney, Bundy Kien Brown, John Herndon, Doug McCombs, and John McEntire).It's familiar, right down to the awful lyrics ("I wanna go to heaven, never been there before"), but refreshingly direct-- closer to Definitely Maybe form than the pretentious bloat of recent Oasis.

Lies" includes a sample from "Goin' Back" by The Byrds, written and composed by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. It may be no more embarrassing than any of the rock-band-in-electronic-clothes attempts sure to be thrust upon us in the coming months, but it's clear Death in Vegas don't have the recipe to the magic rock/electronic stew we've all been told to save our dancefloor moves for.It was released on 16 September 2002 in the United Kingdom via Concrete Records, and on 17 June 2003 in the United States via Sanctuary Records.
