Liberation Transmission begins with Everyday Combat. The album is mainly about "break the way/ make a change". The guitar riffs at the beginning of Everyday Combat fits the whole album prefectly. It's just like "bringing you into a new generation". I have to admit that the Lostprophets do go a little "poppy" this time. But don't get me wrong, they still rock! The guitar in Everyday Combat, 4am Forever, Heaven For The Weather, Hell For The Company are totally worth-listening. If you still go for those heavier ones, I suggest you to listen Heaven For The Weather, Hell For The Company or Everybodys Screaming. If you like Sway in Start Something, I bet you would also like 4am Forever.

Overall, the whole album is about the negative side of people. They tried to write about different "situations" instead of only saying "change the old way, hate this or hate that, etc". Lyrically, A Town Called Hypocrisy is my favourite. It's about a person who was fooled, but now he/she is moving on. "Save Your Sympathy" is just the best part of the whole song. Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters And The Story Of A Lonely Girl, another song I like very much. I think most people can relate to it 'cause everyone must have been hurt before.
Overall Impression — 9
Liberation Transmition is Lostprophets' third album. As a Lostprophets fan, I've been waiting it for a long time. It doesn't let me disappointed. I like most of the songs in it. There are more songs about love than the past 2 albums. besides that, this album has similar theme with the old ones. Everyday Combat, Town Called Hypocrisy, Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters And The Story Of A Lonely Girl, Heaven For The Weather, Hell For The Company, 4 AM Forever are must-listen. This CD is still in my CD player since the first day I bought it, so if it was stolen, I would definitely go to buy a new one and put it back to my Lostprophets CD collection.
