LICE - Wasteland: What Ails Our People Is Clear
Jan 14, 2021
63
I was somewhat pleasantly surprised to hear that the vocals were much less huskier than I expected them to be, but this album's few selling points ultimately aren't enough to stand out from the crowd of new experimental post-punk. Honestly, this remind me a lot of Squid, but 90% in all areas. Having said that there are few highlights, although the quality notibly fluctuates from track to track. R.D.C and Arbiter are good fun, but Espontáneo and Serata have little pay off for their meandering build-ups. And bizarrely, the closer Clear is so divergent from what we opened with with Conveyer. Sure, the album progresses, but it's directionless. It's not a riveting climax, nor a harrowing descension. Just a few bumps and detours.
