Liars (2004)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Apr 06, 2004; Lead Performance: Todd Rundgren

Rundgren has been woodshedding it with high technology for too long. On his latest, a state-of-the-world address (guess what state it's in), he drowns decent melodies in a miasma of digitized keyboards and electronic drum sounds that are as strident as his screeds. It sounds hermetic, as if Rundgren's a crank who locked himself into his home studio and threw away the key.
