Saliva – “Love, Lies & Therapy” [Album Review]

Hard rockers Saliva are back with a new energy on their ninth studio album, Love, Lies And Therapy. Read our review here…



Love, Lies & Therapy is the ninth studio album from Saliva and latest to feature lead vocalist Bobby Amaru. This re-energized line up features their newest members, bassist Brad Steward and has brought with it a resurgence of energy that has allowed them to expand their anthemic choruses, riffs and power ballads notable on “The Loneliest Know”.

The album’s sound is carried through from their two previous releases – 2013’s In It To Win It and 2014’s Rise Up – in part due to the arrival of vocalist Bobby Amaru and departure of founding vocalist Josey Scott. Amaru brings a Saliva 2.0 version with a heavy, melody-laced sound that leads me to believe this band really has been underrated. The album encompasses everything from a beautiful acoustic guitar opening on “Unshatter Me”, to a hard driven riff on “Go Big Or Go Home”. Interestingly enough is the bands choice to cover Michael Jackson’s hit “They Don’t Care About Us”, which is a dramatic departure from the original yet making it current and fresh.

The band has joined the “Make America Rock Again” tour this Fall so get down early because, as Love, Lies & Therapy shows, you won’t want to miss out on what will surely be a great set.
