Remastered for 2009 by Steve Albini and Bob Weston. the heavyweight virgin lps are packaged in deluxe gatefold album jackets with 12" x24" double sided colour inserts. the vinyl formats include a digital download coupon for the entire lp and the bonus tracks (the bonus tracks themselves do not appear on the vinyl). 

From the first few seconds, in which "Boilermaker" leaps out of the speakers, Liar captures the Jesus Lizard in gloriously manic and muscular form, and if it sounds a bit less grimy and psychotic than the album that preceded it, Goat, this is still the musical equivalent of a ranting lunatic you would never dream of sitting next to on the subway.  same time. While the crashing force of cuts like "Gladiator" and "The Art of Self-Defense" is what folks commonly associate with the Jesus Lizard, the spaghetti Western nightmare of "Zachariah" shows they can slow down without losing any of their impact in the process. Liar isn't quite the wildest or weirdest album the Jesus Lizard ever made, but it may well be the strongest, and perhaps the best.
