Mute, 2007
Being a Liars fan, this album was initially kind of a letdown. Repeated listens have proven it to be as good as anything else Liars have done, but it does lose points for not being anywhere near as experimental as past releases. Those expecting the frantic sound of outings like DRUM’S NOT DEAD and THEY WERE WRONG SO WE DROWNED may also be disappointed at first, but as an off-kilter post-punk outing this is still solid gold. Recommended, but neophytes should really check out any of the past albums first.
