5.0 out of 5 stars silvertide show and tell, 3 Nov. 2004
Show and Tell-Silvertide
This album is a breath of fresh air after many years of mediocre bands and the nu-metal explosion. the band make a welcome return to the usual layout of a rock band, 2 guitarists,1 bassist, 1 drummer and a lead singer. there are no crappy djs or keyboard players that have appeared in so many so called rock bands of late. The line up is Walt Lafty-a great vocalist with a voice not dissimilar to the lead singer of the black crows and at times is as unique as Axl Rose and as powerful and exciting as Robert plant. Lead guitarist Nick Perri- a powerfull, explosive guitarist with a style simmilar to slash and the talent and the youth to one day be the next guitar hero. He has created some quality riffs on this album eg, blue jeans, mary jayne but there is room for improvement, i have high hopes of him and look forward to an intresting career. Mark Melchiorre-a solid rhythm guitarist with a bluesy style, also provides piano solo for foxhole jesus christ, one of the more interesting tracks on the album. Brian Weaver- bassist and part of the very tight rhythm section, he adds another layer to the sound of the band as he doesn't just follow the guitarist like many bands eg AC/DC. Kevin Frank, the drummer of the band with a very classic sound, lots of cymbals and bass drums. A very competant drummer with a sound that fits the band perfectly unlike other drummers which don't seem to fit and detract from the bands sound. There is an interesting mix of songs on the album ranging from hard rock, bluesy rock and surprisingly to a slow ballad. The best songs on the album are; Mary Jayne- a hard, fast paced rock song with an excellent shredded solo and searing vocals. Devils Daughter- a bluesy song with a classic sounding solo, lyrics follow a simmilar theme to many of the songs-sex. Too See Where I Hide- this song has a thumping bass and guitar riff and a powerfull chorus. California rain- the most bluesy song on the album, a feel good song you want to blast out your car stereo with the windows down. Blue Jeans- another bluesy feel good song with lyrics to simmilar effect of Devils Daughter. Foxhole Jesus Christ- a song with a political message that shows the band isn't just balls but that they also have brains, a belter of a middle section with the repeated mantra of "war, war what is it for". this is particularilly effective as the whole band sings. Altogether this is the best rock album of the year and is a must have for any rockaholic, especially if you are bored of the mediocre music many bands are producing at the mo.
