    They lied... This album is like a really bad sandwitch. The first two tracks are really good, and the last two tracks are ok... The whole middle is just noise. Not all that impressive.

  1. Far more accessible than anything the act have produced in recent years, Liars shifts perceptions in the way most have come to expect, but with the dense conceptual themes and boundaries limited it is as if they have met most listeners halfway only to lure them back into their own sordid comfort zone, littered with the contents of a fifteen-year-old's bedroom.
  2. They have built up a group of songs so restless and unsatisfying that a group of teenagers with the proper training could have made them, or likely something better.
  3. You could accuse Liars of abandoning all of their high-art concepts and otherworldly thoughts so they could secure their place on a tour of America's enormodomes with Interpol. Well, you could if this album wasn't so perfect.
