WIXIW - Rolling Stone
Home Music Album Reviews


Maybe it was only a matter of time before these former Radiohead tourmates took a shot at their own Kid A. The unpredictable noise rockers come pretty close on their sixth album, although WIXIW packs too many weird twists to feel derivative. Liars build a haunted palace of smeared synths and dysfunctional drum machines around Angus Andrew's echo-cloaked incantations. "This spiral down, no coming back/ A dead end, again and again and again," Andrew moans on "No. 1 Against the Rush," one of several tracks that sound like they would kill at a dance club populated by moody goths from Mars. It's an album that creeps you out even as it sucks you in.
