Green To Think: Liar Like Me

Genre: Rock
Label: Independent

From the cover of Green To Think's Liar Like Me, you might expect straight up emo. Liar Like Me is emotional, but not in a whiny, immature way. Green To Think's excellent songwriting and good lyrics make this album the sort of emotional music that you're not embarrassed to be caught listening to.

The first two tracks, "Dear Urgency" and "Blonde," are truly great tracks that you'll go back to for years to come. "Dear Urgency" has a good riff/hook and better lyrics, ending the track with a great parody of traditional emo/punks who yell "oh" over and over at the end of their songs. "Blonde" sounds emo at first, but again turns the genre on its head with lyrics about NOT missing a girl.

The remainder of the album is also solid. For twelve tracks, song writer and singer Steven Piperno puts up good acoustic licks, good, identifiable vocals, and excellent production. He duets on "Prisoner of War" with a southern girl with a honey-twinge voice. This keeps with the album's somewhat southern theme, which is something of a change for the genre.

Liar Like Me closes with "Can I Call You?" featuring a classic aching piano progression. It's a phenomenal way to close a damn good album. Liar Like Me is a solid singer/songwriter rock album, paying tribute to greats of the same ilk like Elliott Smith or Jack Johnson. Definitely worth a listen.
