Against the rush,
This review is from: WIXIW (Audio CD)
A transitional album I think? Personally, I think it's a little late for Liars to begin pursing an electronica-based direction, & I get the impression that, for the first time, they're following well established trends rather than carving their own uinque swathe through the musical chaff? Though their abrupt change of direction is rather brave, much of WIXIW sounds like a first draft. Given another few months' hard graft, it might've become a bona fide classic. An interesting diversion - albeit by one of the finest bands in the world. An intriguing listen, though not an entirely successful one.
