Though its certainly not akin to any of OMD's earlier, vastly more experimental work, 'Liberator' is an album that holds many of its own charms.

For a start, the themes of the tracks themselves are incredibly diverse- 'Sunday Morning' is a cover of a Lou Reed song (originally included on the revered 1967 album 'The Velvet Underground & Nico'), 'Dream of Me' includes a sample from Barry White's 1973 instrumental 'Love's Theme', and 'Stand Above Me'- an original track- is a plea to an ignorantly stubborn lover ('you say you love me/but I know you won't).

'Heaven Is' is also a wonderfully updated version of a track shelved from OMD's 1984 'Junk Culture' album, whilst 'Love and Hate You' is a bittersweet, yet upbeat song full of cleverly-written contradictions- making these the obvious highlights.

Although last three tracks may prove a little similar in tempo for some people's liking, and perhaps would have fared better were they spaced throughout the album a little more, 'Liberator', as a whole, is a satisfactory set of songs- and whilst hardly edgy, it is definitely enjoyable.
