**** Ein schönes, abwechslungsreiches Rockalbum. Zum Teil sehr spezielle, eingängige Melodien. Meist melancholisch. Oft etwas mettallisch, aber auch grungig. Der blutjunge Sänger hat ne geile Stimme und scheint in Sachen lyrics ein kleines Genie zu sein. Nicht gerade mein Geschmack, aber meistens überwiegt das starke Handwerk. 4.5.
*** Honestly for an album that endures as popular as this one, it's really underwhelming. I mean, I get why it can be someone's favourite Silverchair album, but in that case why not listen to a band from the era who actually had songwriting chops, and realise how flat this can come across.
It just seems so utterly unfair for Silverchair that no matter how far they came in the ensuing years, this still appears to be held as their crowning statement, seemingly still running off its initial hype. It's just so mindbogglingly average that I don't understand it. I'd rather listen to pretty much any other Silverchair album over this one. 2.9 Last edited: 29.01.2015 08:06
