Liberator are a ska band from Sweden fronted by the menacing Robert Ylipaa. The EP Freedom Fighters (Burning Heart, 1995), the album This Is (Burning Heart, 1996) and the EP Carefully Blended (Burning Heart, 1997) established their credentials next to the British and American revivalists. Worldwide Delivery (Burning Heart, 1999 - Epitaph, 2000) offers a fairly conventional take on the genre. For a seven-man combo, Angel Of Death and Motor Animal sound mercilessly flat, the ska equivalent of a soul ballad. Crying, if nothing else, aims for a "progressive" ska with pastoral flute and doo-wop chorus. The band is far more successful when they bend to the Madness' joyful madness (Kick De Bucket, Mr Wright ). Hot Pot and Will There Be Someone add a bit of badly needed absurdism.

I Liberator sono una band ska svedese, guidata dal minaccioso Robert Ylipaa. L'EP Freedom Fighters (Burning Heart, 1995), l'album This Is (Burning Heart, 1996) e l'EP Carefully Blended (Burning Heart, 1997) stabilirono le loro credenziali accanto ai revivalisti britannici e americani. Worldwide Delivery (Burning Heart, 1999 - Epitaph, 2000) offre un approccio abbastanza convenzionale al genere. Per una combo di sette uomini, Angel Of Death e Motor Animal suonano senza pietą, l'equivalente ska di una ballata soul. Crying, se non altro, mira a uno ska "progressivo" con flauto pastorale e coro doo-wop. La band ha molto pił successo quando si aprono alla gioiosa follia dei Madness (Kick De Bucket, Mr Wright). Hot pot e Will There Be Someone aggiungono un po' di assurdismo, molto necessario.
