Lizzy Borden's "Visual Lies" is a great Metal album. Starting with the awesome "Me Against the World", it continues the whole way through with fantastic Heavy Metal songs. "Shock Treatment", "Lord of the Flies", "Voyeur", and the title track are just some of the great songs on this album.

Visual Lies (originally released in 1987) is my favorite Lizzy Borden album. It has some of their best material and is their most solid album Every track is amazing! My favorites are, coincidentally, every other track. "Me Against the World" flat out kicks! Killer power metal at its best with Lizzy's vocal dominance! The best track here, though, is "Outcast." This may be my all-time favorite Lizzy track. It is a slower track, but heavier than a ballad. It has a beauty to it, especially at the line "they're watching as I fall." It picks up the tempo at the chorus but does not explode into a rocker like some of Lizzy's other slower tracks. It stays consistent and, as it is such an amazing track, that is a good thing. In fact, all the tracks here stay pretty consistent in their sound and tempo. Skipping #4, the next stand-out is the title track. "Visual Lies" is another slower track. This may be closer to the perennial power ballad of the late 1980s, but Lizzy always kept an edge to their songs and never dived into the metal ballad realm. Like with Outcast, Visual Lies has a beauty to it especially at the vocal depth at the chorus. Skip the next song and you come to "Lord of the Flies" which is a powerful rocker. It is not as ferocious as Me Against the World, but still can kick. The verses before the chorus are amazing! The final stand-out is "Visions" which is another slower, power track. Lizzy demonstrates his incredible vocal range, singing low at the first part of the verses and then opening it up.

The other tracks, although not quite as stellar, are still excellent. Of the non-bonus songs, there is nothing weak here. "Shock" has some excellent guitar riffs at the verses. If it stayed that way, it would be another favorite of mine. I just do not like the chorus.

I have had Visual Lies for many years. This is a good album. It's not as heavy as their previous material, though. Most of the tunes are a little slower in tempo. This was the first release that I got from Lizzy Borden. I remember getting a kick out of the music video for "Me Against the World." That happens to be an energetic and cool song. The guitar playing throughout Visual Lies is skilled, too. Lizzy's vocals have always been very unique, also (he's a really good vocalist). The direction of Visual Lies is straight-ahead hard rock. My favorite songs are "Me Against the World," "Visual Lies," and "Outcast." The heaviest song of the disc is "Den of Thieves." Visual Lies is pretty enjoyable. Worth a listen.

I remember getting this album around October of 1987. Recently I had seen the video for "Me Against the World" on MTV, so interested, I went to pick it up. I wasn't disappointed. This is a good heavy hardrock album. Lizzy truly has a vocal style all his own. Nobody I've ever heard quite sound like him. "Outcast" is a good tune along with their ballad "Visual Lies." I remember that Lizzy Borden got a lot of flak from the media because some people considered it a sellout compared to their earlier stuff. I admit, it's a little more slower in places, but that's not a bad thing. It's still Lizzy Borden and it also has a good production. Good guitar playing also.
