Deeply rich in dark atmospheres and raw aggression. An experimental journey into the minds of the lonely and wandering.

BEST TRACKS: It Fit When I Was a Kid, The Other Side of Mt. Heat Attack, A Visit from Drum, Hold You Drum, Drum and the Uncomfortable Can, Be Quiet Mt. Heart Attack!

Super percussion heavy and mellow production that features some of the most punchy and crisp drums I have heard in an album. This was definitely the Liars album, I was most excited about. It relies very much on its super mystical atmosphere created by the high-pitched vocals and repetitive drumming patterns. It is a hard swallow, but ultimately a super rewarding listening experience.
