Needless to say the music press love them. And Liars know the music press will love them, because they're just designed that way. Their reviews sound enticing, and evoke haywire acts like Suicide, the Minutemen and early Sonic Youth. Shame that all the songs put together haven't got a fraction of the appeal of the records those bands will be making when their members are in old peoples' homes. Now what shall we call our song? I know! 'If You're A Wizard Then Why Do You Wear Glasses?' And then the next one 'We Fenced The Gardens With The Bones Of Our Own'! And the next one 'They Don't Want Your Corn They Want Your Kids'! Need I go on? You get the idea. Its unbelievably pompous and self-important.
Of course, there's worse stuff out there. Generally, though, this is an mess of broken-up beats, bleeps and guitars. It does have appeal sometimes, but it drags and they frequently descend into simply boring, endless, empty beat-type noise. It could be brilliant if they learned how to edit and lost their pomposity. But now its the wrong side of the genius/irritant line.
