If you enjoyed Silversteins first album "When Broken is Easily Fixed", then you will be thrilled to hear that they have maintained their sound in this album yet adding depth and diversity. This is apparent in the lead singers voice (Shane Told), alternating from a gifted singing voice to a grinding scream throughout the album.
Discovering the Waterfront grabs your attention from the offset, with "Your Sword Vs My Dagger" offering a crunching riff, indeed there are many impressive riffs on this album in which you can dig your teeth into. The diversity comes through in songs such as "The Idles of March" and the albums namesake, "Discovering the Waterfront", sing along songs if you must, but songs that bring your attention to Shane Tolds excellent voice. The jewel in the crown of this album comes in "Smile In Your Sleep". From the very first listen, this song will engrain itself in your brain, infact its probably worth buying the album for this song alone. However, the reason this album would not get full marks for me is because there are a few songs which are abit lacking abit of good ole fashion quality, a quality that is the neccessary ingredient for a catchy song, nevertheless this album is a must for the songs which ooze quality, a must for fans of emo/rock!
