Lies for the Liars, the third album from these L.A.-by-way-of-Utah screamo kings, is arguably the most artful distillation of their Agnostic Front-meets-the Cure trip yet. Even if producer John Feldmann (Good Charlotte) throws too many electronic bells and whistles on top of the proceedings for our taste, there’s no denying the galvanic power of singer Bert McCracken’s blowtorch vocals or the The Used’s rampaging attack on ace tracks like ”The Ripper” and ”Hospital.” We do, however, wish the generic ”Find a Way” had found its way onto someone else’s CD.
