I bought this years ago when it first came out in 92 and I played it to death.
Listening to it now I can see what came before and came after. It's most obvious parentage lies in the fetile brain of Steve Albini, a mate of the band. It's like a more organic version of Big Black,fittingly as David Sims once played with Albini in Rapeman, with a similar sense of attack and contolled noise. Imagine a speed fuelled, concentrated version of Black Sabbath, minus the wizards and mystic tosh, more stone cold insane than stonehenge stoned.
It's finger prints are all over 'In Utero' by Nirvana. Kurt was a big fan, he even tried to piggy back them to fame with a split double A side single of Nirvana's "Oh the Guilt" with "Puss" from this album. Imagine, The Jesus Lizard nearly made it onto Top of the Pops, now that would have been something.
Like Big Black, David Yows lyrics and singing style continually returns to pick at scabs, horrid small town tales, the horrible things that people do.
Musically the band specialise in small, clipped pieces of musical information repeated over and over, like The Fall at their most rocking. the first three tracks 'Boilermaker', 'Gladiator' and 'The Art of Self Defence' rock harder then almost any album opening that I can think of, and, manage to sound only like themselves, an almost amazing feat even in those heady days of invention.
I recommend this album but find it hard to say why, just like recommending that someone watch 'Deliverence' or read 'Hiroshima'. It's definately something ugly, but there's something there that has to be seen, unpleasent or not.

As anyone familiar with this band well knows, Liar is a beast of a record. The Jesus Lizard were a blunt instrument of enormous power and on Liar they really reached a peak of sheer aural brutality. They should have called it Whiplash because that's what it feels like to listen to this at volume. Not recommended while operating heavy equipment or driving! I have long had a copy of this but got pretty excited when I saw that a remastered version was available. I have the other key JL records like Goat and Head/Pure and always thought that Liar sounded muddy by comparison, particularly David Yow's vocals, which sound like he's singing into a pillow half the time.

So I hastened to pick up a copy of this when I discovered it by chance a few years after its release. That said, I cannot distinguish a great deal of difference - if any - between the original recording and this 'remastered' version. Methinks Albini and co are taking the piss, given Albini's stated disdain for anything digital. So if you want it, buy it for the extra tracks - which includes a stonking alternate version of Gladiator - and the cool pics and content on the inserts. But 'remastered'? I don't think so... not to my ears anyway.

This, my favourite, Jesus Lizard album can be listened to all the way through easily and very enjoyably-every song is great, flawless instrumentation accompanied wih tales of sleaze and horror from a man who sounds like he's had too much to drink. I can't stress enough just how COOL Duane Denison's guitar sounds-the solo of "Boilermaker," the ending of "Gladiator," the nifty little touches on "Puss," and the main guitar line of "Whirl," are some of the highlights of what Denison produces on this record.
This is an exhilarating record that rocks with evil intent all the way through apart from the hazy and slow-paced, yet still decent, "Zachariah."
One of the best of the nineties.

Top Review from Mark Brown. I agree entirely. This band encapsulates the sound of a beautiful rage. This surpasses anything David Yow has done before, or since.

If you love this album - it will define you.
