This was released shortly before So Far, So Good, So What?(If I'm not mistaken) and it's for sure one of the best songs on that album. Contrary to popular opinion, I think that SFSGSW is better than any of their other albums from the 80s. Well, that's another story. On to the song:
Liar is about Chris Poland, who stole Mustaine's guitars. Just take a look at they lyrics. HILARIOUS!
"Your sister's a junkie, get "it" anyway she can
Your brother's a gay singer in a stud leather band
Your girlfriend's got herpes to go with your help and aids"
Priceless! Mustaine has always written great lyrics and even though these lyrics sound rather childish, they are fun as hell! There's no chance that you won't scream along with Dave:"YOU, YOU FUCKING LIAR!"
The song itself is a thrashfest at it's best. From the neat intro riff to the last note, this is pure thrash mayhem. It might not be as fast, extreme or brutal as many other thrash bands at the time, but it's great nonetheless. Well executed solos just put the cream on top of the cake. My only complaint is(this happened on many songs before Rust In Peace) that the drums are just....there. They are not here for any originality or great playing, they just accompany the riffs, nothing more.
Mustaine's vocals are in top form and you can almost feel the venom he spits while ranting about Poland. Well, he had a reason to be pissed off.
If you want a fast, funny and extremely catchy thrash song, get this. For sure one of the best songs on So Far, So Good, So What? Recommended.
