Review

Review Text This CD by the Brooklyn-based hardcore group Books Lie contains their first full-length album plus all of the single sides that had preceded it, making it an 18-track summation of the band's first few years. Books Lie sound on the surface like any number of other deathly earnest post-emo hardcore groups, but there's a sly sense of humor to much of Hall of Fame of Fire that makes it a much more entertaining listen than most. The tracks range from obvious jokes like the deliberately dated dance loops "Young MC5" and "Baby Mama Dharma" and the Gang Green-like up-yours anthem "Rhymes With Tiss by Sass" to more serious but still witty rave-ups like "Don't Converge on the Roof or It Might Cave In" and "That's Not God, That's Thunder," all delivered with enough amped-up intensity and vocal firepower to put even the small handful of relatively weak, seemingly half-finished songs over. ~ Stewart Mason
