Man! Do I want to like this album? No, I want to love this it like no other CD before it. The lyrics are pure spoken out of anger at the injustices and wrong doings of our government-controlled media, spoken for the advancement of the human race and trying to reach a better future. They are the type of guilt ridden, accountable songs that should be yelled from the mountaintops by every pop group in the world… but the music is just too miserably horrible to possibly consider such an act. It pains me worse than anything in the vacuous world of pop music to sit through an entire Liars song in one try. This is just so sad. Lyrically, it is like an hour-long interpretation of Lennon's "Gimme Some Truth," but the muzak synths and elevator production make Prince's new album sound cutting edge. "Mammon" brings out the worst of '80s rock, Survivor style, before "Future" ice creams out some low key drum & bass so silky smooth you may not even recognize it as DnB. I can't imagine my father listening to anything so cheesy, so my chances of getting him into hardcore electronics remain next to nil. The music is just too wretchedly terrible to try and absorb Todd fantastic messages. For the love of God, please read the liner notes, but never under any circumstances attempt to listen to Liars or you may end up in a pain-induced coma.
