From the opening second, Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence is a heartstopping piece of work. Produced by nu-metal overlord Ross Robinson, the sound is hot and cloying; instrumentation is reeled back, simply a sideshow for Palumbo's astonishing vocals. Like an emo Mike Patton, Palumbo's vocals never stay in the same place for more than a moment, moving between screams, yelps, roars and angelic melodicism usually within one line of one song. Lyrically, unfortunately, it's the same stuff about bullets and heartbreak which has since become the usual for this genre; it's easy to forget how early on Palumbo was doing it.
Even eight years on, the album remains musically thrilling, as affecting as it is heavy. The blunt production seems to only emphasise the music - the pop-punky 'Ry Ry's Song' is a punchy singalong (albeit one about hookers and motels); 'When One Eight Becomes Two Zeroes' is one of Palumbo's finest putdowns ('you're not the other woman/you're just another') and the outro of the brilliant 'Siberian Kiss' is probably the album's most perfectly crystallised moment.
What's even more surprising is that the follow up album was even better, but if you're just starting out with Glassjaw or Palumbo, this is excellent debut is where you need to start.
