Liars - Liars

After three very concept-heavy records, Liars seem to have a very simple goal with their fourth album: playing and doing what they damm well please. Of course that, coming from a band known for the many twists presented throughout their short but immaculate career, this means touching so many different genres and things to the point of near-schizophrenia. From hard-rock to shoegazing, punk to pop, late 1980's Manchester-inspired sounds, trip-hop experiments, new wave tricks, industrial atmospheres, garage rock and a lot of Sonic Youth influences, "Liars" gives us an effective tour throughout their limitless musical tastes. The main point that takes it all to a higher level being that everything is done with a very personal/Liars point of view, a mutant approach to song-writing and production and, most of all, an unique and visceral energy that sounds like it couldn't come from anyone else. (7,5/10)
