5.0 out of 5 stars A tough choice..., 2 Dec 2009
This review is from: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence [VINYL] (Vinyl)
This album pushed the boundaries of metal/rock/harcore or however else you want to classify this band. Along with Relationship of Command (also produced by Robinson) it blew apart the dying vessels of nu-metal with exemplary musicianship and Palumbo's standout vocals/lyrics - the likes of which had been absent from rock/metal for much of the previous decade. This album is a must have for any music fan, if you liked faith no more you can probably enjoy this, if you liked slipknot you probably NEED to listen to this.
The catch 22 is that glassjaw are a band with a dedicated fan base who respect their art and vision and this re-release is a record label cash in with no input from glassjaw. Personally I love having the vinyl copy of this album, my original CD is so battered it barely gets into Ry Ry's Song and Roadrunner are never going to hand over the rights to this record, so one way or another they're going to profit. In short if you have never heard this album GET IT, if you can, get it at a show.
This re-release adds next to nothing to the original recording, how could it? It is good to listen to it again and on a format I know will last until the next reissue.
Peace.
