FOUR LETTER LIE
LET YOUR BODY TAKE OVER
VICTORY

Yet another innocuous rock band put out by Victory Records, the five guys from Minnesota which comprise Four Letter Lie do the Taking Back Sunday meets Hawthorne Heights act with dashes of Glassjaw and Coheed and Cambria peeking through the overwrought but not as annoying as normal pseudo tough guy/ angelic vocal tradeoffs heard on tracks like "Cowboys & Indians". Despite the fact that these dudes have rad haircuts and look more well-groomed than Paris Hilton's pooch, the versatile musicianship displayed on cuts like "Full Tilt Boogie" trumps their gone-tomorrow look tenfold, while impassioned tunes like the title track and the driving "Tell Me Everything" illuminate this 12 track release's genre-shifting style and overall strong dynamic switches. Four Letter Lie is an acquired taste, leaning heavy on the Warped Tour punk and screamo/ emo border, but there's enough good stuff inside LET YOUR BODY TAKE OVER to warrant repeated listens.
