Liars – No.1 Against The Rush.

Widely being touted as the ‘album of the year’ in certain circles for their 6th album WIXIW I decided to check out what all the fuss was about.

With a dark New Romantic feel the album is hard to place and benefits from moody imagery. Liars sound a lot like early 80’s outfit The Sound, even if no one else is mentioning this. That is a seal of approval rather than a knock. I have listened to the album just and feel it is a worthy contender for a year where I have, admittedly, not checked out much new music.

WIXIW is not album of the year for me though. That accolade I would give, wholeheartedly, to Swans – ‘The Seer’ which, as difficult as it is, is a real work of sprawling menacing beauty…
