4.0 out of 5 stars
I wouldn't normally write a review but..., 3 Mar. 2009
sometimes you really need to counter the hopeless idiocy of some people. This album is far from the tuneless dirge attested to by a previous reviewer, in fact it is full of relatively straightforward garage rock encassed within Western song structures of around 3 to 4 minutes in length, but complete with the sense of power and menace one associates with Liars output. This record is for anyone with an interest in music which demands proper listening and gives no quarter (see my pun Zeppelin boy) touching on not just garage, but krautrock, fuzz, noise and ambience. My advice to anyone is to start at the start with They Threw Us In A Trench... and work through the fantastic back catalogue of Liars always involving experiments in music, from the funk-punk Mr Your On Fire Mr to the understated rhythmic beauty of The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack. Most wholeheartedly recommended for fans of Deerhunter, No Age and Aninmal Collective, but maybe not those who think that Smoke On The Water is God's gift to man.
