5.0 out of 5 stars Mess not really, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mess [VINYL] (Vinyl)
WIXIW can certainly be seen as the Lairs getting to grips with electronics as this release sees another shift in gear to a totally electronic album.

Samples, synths and electronic drum sounds are at the heart of Mess and experimentation with sound. Whereas the first six tracks are pure electronic ‘Boyzone’ and ‘Dress Walker’ show Lairs have not lost their experimental side and this continues into the longest track ‘Perpetual Village’.

Guitars! Mess, does not have any! But Mess, is also not your standard electronic pop or rock. So what is it? It’s a Lairs take on what electronic music should be… and for those who morn the demise of the guitar it’s most likely that Angus, Aaron and Julian will pop them back in on the next album so we just don’t get too comfortable.

Mess has the best of both worlds, some instant gratification with the likes of ‘Mess on a Mission’ but also endless depth in the likes of ‘Left Speaker Blown’. I highly recommend this release if you are looking for something a little different.
