#994 Liars – They Were Wrong, So We Drowned

Liars? I know many of them. I have never heard of the band. They Were Wrong, So We Drowned is their second album of noise rock. As of 2014, they have only one remaining original member, Angus Andrew. The album is loosely based on the Brocken legends. Rolling Stone magazine hated this album so much that they gave it 1 star. Spin magazine gave it an F. Harsh! I am not sure I want to hear it.

I liked almost all of the songs to various degrees. I really liked “They Don’t Want Your Corn, They Want Your Kids”, “Read the Book That Wrote Itself”, and “Hold Hands and It Will Happen Anyway”.

Overall, I think this album is amazing. I thought it was incredible. I can see why it is not for everyone, but I like noise and experimental rock from time to time. It you think you might like those genres or a bit of punk, then give it a listen. 9/10.
