In an era marked by highly-mediocre pap that passes for "rock", "Fins To Make Us More Fish-Like" is the curb-stomping mainstream radio deserves. If you are lucky enough to own "They Threw Us In A Trench..."
, then this follow-up EP will surprise you a small take. IF you do NOT own "They Threw...", then you may wake up in the emergency room following your first listen of "Everyday Is A Child With Teeth", the record's full-on, head-trauma inducing middle track.
The proliferation of this aural masterpiece may lead to an epidemic of fractured limbs, lacerated carpets and general electro-shock dance tunnel syndrome.
The first salvo has been fired at the "Friends"-age of cheese rock. If Creed is Chandler, Muddle of Pudd is Joey, Avril Lavigne is Monica, then this band, Liars, are a South Boston Street Gang intent on not being there for you, leaving "Central Perk" with smashed coffee mugs, broken baby pictures, and melted soap-opera tapes in its wake.
