Liberation Transmission is the new album by the Lostprophets. They are an alternative band and the new album is slightly more poppy but still has the same heavy riffs and screaming from previous albums. The guitar in the songs has gotten better and there are now impressive solos in the songs which were not frequently seen in the previous records. The drums have changed significantly as well since the arrival of their new drummer.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are catchy and can connect to most people. The singer, Ian Watkins is very talented and the new record shows it very well. The lyrics mix with the music perfectly and they make you rock out, sometimes without even knowing it. They are similar to lyrics from previous songs and can relate to teenage people's problems and how they react. Overall, very good lyrics.
Overall Impression — 10
This album is more pop-oriented than previous albums so some old school fans may miss the heavy down-tuned riffs and screaming. The most impressive songs from the album are "Everyday Combat", which is similar to previous songs and has a catchy, heavy riff, and "For All These Times Son, For All These Times", as it has lyrics that make you sing along and clapping that mixes perfectly with the drums. If it was stolen, I would definitely buy it again.
