Visual Lies was Lizzy Borden's third album, and the one where the . based glam metal band made the final leap into poodle-haired mediocrity. Their first studio album, Love You to Pieces, had its moments, and 1986's Menace to Society was an impressive blend of hard rock intensity and pop gloss. Unfortunately, on Visual Lies, the pop gloss starts to overwhelm the sound.

Lizzy Borden manage the creation of a warm, organic sound without falling into the trap of commercialism. Visual Lies" is definitely not over-produced and far away from sterility. I enjoy the absence of keyboards, although the guitars could be a bit sharper. However, that's a very good mix and so the stage is set for nine glorious compositions. Visual Lies is easily the best produced album of 1987, I don't hear many albums in the 21st century that come close to sounding this good. Every note is at the perfect level and no element of the music dominates another. With a vocalist this graceful and talented, that's not an easy feat.
