Silverchair Has A New Sound

One of my favorite bands (because of their ultra-hot lead vocalist) has recently released their fifth album entitled "Young Modern." Oh, the oxymoron in the title haha. Anyway, here are some facts from Wiki:

  • The album was released on March 31, 2007
  • The album debuted at number 1 on the Australian albums chart on April 9, 2007
  • It is the first album to ever chart as number 1 on iTunes through orders taken for albums prior to its release
  • The album made Silverchair the first Australian band to ever have five #1 albums

Here are the tracks:

  • Young Modern Station
  • Straight Lines
  • If You Keep Losing Sleep
  • Reflections of a Sound
  • Those Thieving Birds (Part 1) / Strange Behavior / Those Thieving Birds (Part 2)
  • The Man That Knew Too Much
  • Waiting All Day
  • Mind Reader
  • Low
  • Insomnia
  • All Across The World

Anyway, they sound kinda different in this new album. Daniel Johns still has that boyish tone in his voice, and that Silverchair attitude. But there are a lot of elements in the new album that weren't around in the previous ones. The rhythm, the over-all sound, the falseto notes. Hahaha. Listening to the entire album is ... fun. I don't know, it just gave me the feeling that I should be happy, hanging in the clouds, enjoying life. I think I'm gonna listen to it all over again. :)
