Amoeba Review

03/24/2014

Mess is a truly f-ed up party record. “TAKE MY PANTS OFF. SMELL MY SOCKS. EAT MY FACE OFF” Angus Andrew sings like a downtuned sexual robot over ravey opener “Mask Maker,” with weird noise breaks and touches that bring us back to Liars’ first, electroclash album. That song seamlessly moves into the nasty “Vox Tuned D.E.D.,” a slithering jam that should land anyone with a darkwave/EBM fetish in heaven. “I’m No Gold” sounds more like the kind of atonal headlong rockers found on Liars and Sisterworld, with synths in the place of guitars. Though the album doesn’t maintain that level of energy throughout, they thankfully continue to explore some of the more mature territory they embarked on with their last album, WIXIW, on songs like the spare “Can’t Hear Well” and grimy “Darkslide,” the latter a foray into British-style dubstep, while songs like “Boyzone” recall the noise experiments of earlier albums like the great Drum’s Not Dead. But it’s the party jams that stay with you the longest here, like the minimal wave-inspired “Mess On a Mission.” Without compromising an inch, Liars have made their most fun album in years.
