"On the subject of the influence that setting has on art, Charles Bukowski once snarled "air and light and time and space have nothing to do with it, and don't create anything," however, Liars have illustrated in 2014 that they can't escape the burden of their surroundings. And uniquely with Mess, they've instead dealt with the most colossal environment, making a grander statement about the aphotic bleakness of society in the process. Toward the end of the record, Andrew asks the question "is there no better place to die?" and doesn't receive a response but rather a command: "say the word die."

That's what we thought of Liars' new album, Mess, but what do you think? Listen to the the album below courtesy of NPR and let us know!
