    Ugh. More pretentious art rock crap from one of the goofiest bands in existence. You say it's a difficult listen, I say it's a laughable put on.

    What is this awful noise? Oh, it's three dudes who don't know how to play their instruments trying to make pretentious art pop crap. How this passes for commendable indie rock is beyond me.

    There's a subtle beauty amid the madness. [24 Mar 2006, p.70]
  2. Perhaps it took a grueling creative journey and a battle with self-doubt to get there, but the end result is a band that has retained its brash experimental flare while discovering its heart.
  3. It is clear that Liars are, just now, coming into their own musically, making music that ebbs and flows and might actually invite emotion as much as it does analysis.
