    Time that could have been spent on cultivating studied cool, a la The Bravery, appears to have been wisely invested in memorable songs. [Jul 2006, p.101]
  2. Lostprophets are big and brash and brilliant. And this is rock'n'roll radio.
  3. Essential listening for mall rats everywhere. [Aug 2006, p.113]
  4. While Liberation Transmission may be a lyrical vacuum, it is also a musical masterclass in how to create 12 tracks of killer with almost no filler.
  5. Around the world, 15-year-olds will fall for this band. Then they will turn 16 and move on. [30 Jun 2006, p.161]
  6. Lyrically absurd, musically turbo-fuelled.
  7. If they're going to ascend to big-name status, this third release, their most punkily accessible yet, will be the one that does it.

    Overall a great album, something very unexpected was the change in tone n pace of the album in comparrison to SS. SS had great fast-oaced, heavier tracks such as We are godzilla, you are japan n start something. yet this album slows the pace down a bit n brings it down a notch in terms of heaviness. I found that a pleasant change but still a bit dissappointing as I have always loved the heavy prophets. best track is deffinately rooftops, its like the next installment to possibly their best n most famous hit, last train home, n so it means great success. loses points for loss in pace n heaviness but gains points for lyrics and overall music. "prophet fans will love. Expand

    After Start something and The Fake Sound of Progress this album seems like a major step down. I used to go to LProphets to get pumped but they've changed both their look and their sound and I don't like the change Expand

    What happened to the fist-pumping explosion of pure energy that was the fake sound of progress? What happened to the orchestrated hard rock balladry of Start Something? Its disgusting to think about what these guys might do for another hour of airtime on MTV or mainstream radio stations. When I listen to the highlights of their first album, the fake sound of progress, I just think, yes! This is what metal is all about. And to think, with proper production and a little time they could have made the best nu-metal album to date. Instead they changed, some argue for the better, they certainly sold more. The new sound wasn't all that bad again. It was refined and crisp. But now they have taken another step into the abyssmal pit of pop-rock. To me, it sounded like avril lavigne, but instead a guy was singing. And that's fine if you're 14 and like to sing in front of the mirror. Expand
