THALIA ZEDEK - LIARS AND PRAYERS
21 APRIL 2008
Thalia Zedek has notable musical credentials from a number of bands including Uzi, Live Skull and Come, before her solo work. The tour for her debut album on Thrill Jockey 'Trust Not Those in Whom Without Some Touch of Madness' earned a spot on The Wire magazine's top 60 Greatest Shows Ever.
But it doesn't matter what she's done, this album is awful. Unlistenable. She sounds like a moody adolescent whining about depression. The songs are too long, unstructured, meandering and devoid of a melody. Listen to it at your peril.
For fans of: apparently Nick Cave and PJ Harvey
