When I first heard "Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja" on Muchmusic (Now known as Fuse) I couldn't shake the sheer intensity and musicianship of the song. So three years later I track down the band's debut CD and couldn't get it out of my CD player. Every track was interesting and so unpredictable that the CD deserved repeated uninterrupted listens. Then, when I heard "Last train home" I was so psyched that I went out of my way to order that CD from Amazon before it was released, and was not disappointed at all with the new style because they still kept their originality and unpredictable edge. With the release of Liberation Transmission the songs are mildly predictable and sickeningly overproduced. I can count on one hand the number of songs that really reach out and grab you on this CD. In fact, if I didn't know any better I'd say this album sounds like Start Something impersonating the Fake Sound of Progress. I'll just run them down in a list.

Everyday Combat: This is a great song, one of the best songs that they've ever written. Definitely as good an opening as We Still Kill the Old Way and Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja.

A Town Called Hypocrisy: Despite the fact that the words on the chorus don't flow very good, the song is solid and very pleasing. One of the album's higher points.

The New Transmission: This song has traditional prophets dripping all over it, except for its overproduction which takes something away from it.

Rooftops: A little too reminiscent of Last Train Home for me, this is one song I feel they should have spent a little more time on writing, the lyrics are just a little too simplistic.

Can't Stop Gotta Date With Hate: I disagree with the people who say this sounds a lot like the All American Rejects song.

First off, the first guy's review is totally wrong. I laughed out loud when he said 4am compared to Goodbye Tonight on Start Someting. Please don't read that review. LP is not pop-punk. I'll write 2 quick reviews. One for fans of LP who've heard their other 2 cd's, the other for newcomers who saw the Rooftops video on TV or something of that sort.

Liberation Transmission. Hmm. First off, let's begin by stating that is would be near impossible to follow up with someting as spectacular as Start Something. Tough to match. I always personally thought Start Something made LP their own genre. Call it "nu-rock" or whatever. The number one thing I expected out of Liberation Transmission was a new style, due to the evolution of style from Fake Sound to Start Something. If not a new style, the same as SS, but with more advanced vocals and instrumentals. I kind of got that, but not as much as i anticipated. The songs in LT are not as catchy as SS, and not as creative. The one thing I remember about SS was that each song as a very creative, brilliant beat. I could hear 3 seconds of any song and know what it was. Though LT doesn't meet these exact specs, it does a good job.

I must address these accusations that LP have gone emo. No, they are not. People who accused it of being emo don't know what emo is. Emo is a style that concentrates on allowing the listener to hear exactly what the singer is saying, with hardly any instrumental ingeniuvity or such. Emo bands want listeners to know what they are thinking and feeling. This is not LP.

Unfortunately, I can understand the accusations that some of their songs are emo. On SS, they flirted a tad with emo, not that much though. On LT, I can clearly pick out several songs that are laced with emo characteristics.

Where are all of the people who reviewed this item when it comes to reviewing "Weapons", a truly superior album?

This is the the third LP CD I've picked it up after rediscovering this band with "Weapons". I expected that this album wasn't going to be as strong and it certainly wasn't. Not bad, just not great. It has the requisite energy, good beats, and good vocals but I think that especially for the first 2/3s of the album the focus is on fast-paced, energetic songs where the pacing and perhaps the mixing blended everything together too much. For my $$ the best songs come at the end of the album. Maybe this was just that I warmed up to the album only by the end? I don't know but I have listened to this several times before reviewing and have felt the same way for the last 2-3 listens. None of the earlier songs are bad in and of themselves but they just don't distinguish themselves well enough from one another and don't push certain elements of the music within each song (the vocals dominate and everything else, while mixed clearly, is also mixed at close to the same levels).

Best song on the album is track 10 ("For All These Times Son, For All These Times"), complete with handclaps of all things! Some shouting, some different traction over the song with the vocals especially, and a lot of energy. I've found myself returning to this song frequently. Track 11 ("Heaven For the Weather, Hell For the Company") is another strong tune and the instruments are allowed more of a showcase (minor as it is) but the singing is not as sharp; still, a good track. The album ends with track 12 ("Always All Ways [Apologies, Glances and Messed Up Chances]"), a slower ballad with sympathetic vocal tones.

3.5 stars overall.
