Only in this day and age of Internet publications and indie bandwagoning can pretentious garbage like this be popular. Long live pretentious garbage like this!
I don't know why I feel compelled to review this, except that I love it and maybe this is an expression of said infatuation. This is cool, like, yes, early-middle Sonic Youth but with the obvious tribal vibe going on.
Yes, the critical references to post-apocalypse shards are pretty dead on, couldn't have said it better myself, near perfection, and all that.
I like this new direction, like the guys dug out their 80s alternative LPs and gave them a few spins before going into the studio. Narcotic, tribal, glorious.
As far from there being a concept, this album is so definitely, clearly about the individual songs, each one brilliantly provided with its own unique personality. Another thing this fluxing of sound brings to your attention is the band’s use of discordant guitars.
It’s an element that has been there quite some time for Liars, but here they display how happy they are to use guitars purely as a rhythm instrument. Always a good thing.
