5.0 out of 5 stars What Fun! Amazing Bass and Drums 29 Oct 2013
By Mark Shackelford TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album (or at least, the drummer) was recommended to me by the wonderful Drummer's Journal (check out their Facebook page) - and any magazine that likes Evelyn Glennie and Bill Bruford HAS to be a good bet, and so I splashed out on this album sound unheard.

Admission: I am a VERY old Van Der Graaf and King Crimson fan, who has also collected the works of Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins (amongst many others)... so what have we here?

Drums - Loud, Fierce, Crisp
Bass - Stunning, reminds me of the Stranglers - Cutting, Crunching, but very Clear
Guitar - Noise, Howls, Screeching above the tremendous rhythm section
Vocals - Perfectly suited to the above Holocaust

Not sure what genre (if any) this fits into... Heavy Rock, Metal, Punk - all sorts of echoes of music from the last 50 years... I am really enjoying this :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Stunning 7 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic debut album and it's great to hear from a band with such ferocious passion in an age where most artists seem rather indifferent to what they are doing. Silence Yourself even has the band's manifesto written on the covers and its message couldn't be anymore relevant in our age of constant distractions and babbling.

So they have the substance and thankfully, the talent to match it. Savages built their reputation on their ferocious live performances and it is only a minor quibble that the album doesn't live up to that. But again, bands that are stronger live than on album are another rarity and this album is excellently put together.

You can hear right away the influences behind the Savages music, but Jehnny Beth's wail is out of this world, completely original and surprisingly diverse; she has an excellent way of phrasing words that really separates her from the herd. For the most part she uses her voice like the music behind her, to confront the listener, to demand them to hear what she has to say, which brings me onto the lyrics, which are quite excellent and biting.

For the most part, the album does have a unified sound, which is deliberately confrontational and sparse, with no fancy showmanship to detract from the band's message. Most of the songs are lean, harsh, some, like Strife and Hit Me, even suggest an almost metal-head influence behind the band, which isn't that hard to believe. But even this album has its moodier pieces, the first coming right in the middle of the album with Waiting For A Sign and the Instrumental, Dead Nature.

Format:Audio CD
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Savages were the anti-Haim: an all-female post-punk band with little regard for pop credibility but wholeheartedly committed to espousing a fiery DIY punk attitude in everything they do. In a year which saw Pussy Riot languishing in a prison cell and proving that Vladimir Putin is almost certainly not a punk rocker, Savages’ Silence Yourself is Exhibit A in proving that there is nothing more rousing than a female front woman channeling Siouxsie Sioux, as the short-haired Jehnny Beth does here in a series of anguished yelps evocative of The Pop Group’s Y.

From the riot-inducing bassline to the shipwreck-summoning psiren of Jehnny Beth’s voice on ‘Shut Up’, Savages have a canny knack of creating the sort of music which feels completely familiar, sharing DNA with the likes of Public Image Ltd and even Joy Division in their love of ominous foreboding. The anthemic riffs on ‘She Will’ and ‘Husbands’ certainly sound like long-lost cousins to the Au Pairs and immediately give you the impression that Savages are musically far more capable of transcending post-punk, but this genre is clearly just a matter of providing uniformity for them.

Where Savages stand apart is that they feel utterly sincere in recalling the era of the ‘no wave’ movement, with Jehnny Beth in particular coming across like a quasi-feminist pariah who stands out starkly in today’s fickle musical landscape. Karen O is an obvious musical forebear, but Savages are anything but garage rock revivalists, especially since Silence Yourself makes many obvious overtures to atonality and dissosance in a way which the Yeah Yeah Yeahs never quite had the bravery to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Babylon's Burning 12 May 2013
By Rspbcpb
Format:MP3 Download
I don't have the benefit of seeing a live performance so I can't compare, I know that often the live experience is better. That aside as someone who has only listened to the this recorded material I can thoroughly recommend this album. It does have echos of Joy Division and Siouxsie and the Banshees and a little of the Ruts mixed in too, for me a definite 5 *

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new band 16 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm always listening out for new music and this female fronted troupe is a double-barrel blast of intrigue and joy.
I first heard single: She Will on the BBCs 6 Music and at the time had no idea who I was listening to, but digging around here on Amazon some months later yielded up this their début record.
I don't think there are enough women in music, so it is particularly satisfying to find that this band has an all female line up, who are themselves fans of the kind of spiky music they themselves have given us here, some of the influences certainly appeal to me and the ones that I don't know about all conspire to work in this recordings overall favour.
I certainly believe this collective have oodles of potential and this new fan looks forward to whatever these ladies come up with next.
So if you like some sharp spiky heartfelt melancholic music, my favourite kind, I would recommend acquiring. I wonder if Siouxsie Sioux is a fan....

Update. It is now early April and this CD has not been out of my portable player, the songs have grown and grown I just adore the vocalist and I wish I could get to see them live.

I like Siouxie and the Banshees, but this is far too like them, more like a really good tribute band who are bored with playing the known standards. Read more

Of course this is all a matter of opinion, but I didn't think there was a lot to this album. Droning guitar just strumming open strings with reverb didn't catch my attention. Read more

I suggest you ignore the derivative of this and that type review and enjoy a classic album. It's fierce and fine for it. Side B is my favourite.

5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air!
In an age of trivial mass-produced plastic pop, it is a real pleasure to come across something born out of real passion and belief. Do yourself a favour and buy it.

'Silence Yourself' is an absolutely brilliant post punk album which taps into the same raw cathartic energy as 'Unknown Pleasures'. Read more
