This album takes the best elements from hardcore, nu-metal and emocore and the combination is some of the most aggressive yet uplifting music you will ever hear. This album takes a couple of listens to 'get into', as the anger and hate makes some of the most extreme music around, but perseverance pays off as this is a highly addictive album. 'Pretty Lush' and 'Ry Ry's Song' are the most accessible tracks present, but Glassjaw don't do hit singles and the real highlights reveal themselves after a couple of listens. 'Siberian Kiss', 'Piano', 'Hurting and Shoving' and 'Lovebites and Razorlines' are personal favourites, which mix some of the heaviest abrasive hardcore with sublime and tender melodies. Lyric wise, this album deals with vocalist Daryl Palumbo's troubled love life, and is highly recommended to anyone going through similar relationship problems or anyone who has had their heart broken (basically all of us). Unmissable.

If you take the metal-core stylings of Vision Of Disorder and mix with the beauty and melody of Far, add a dash of the Deftones and a pinch of Quicksand you will be nearing the thrill-ride that is Glassjaw's debut album. Considerably more intense than they're earlier work, EYEWTKAS is the work of a band that are destined for classic status. Musically the album takes you from violent thrashings to introspective murmur, while lyrically frontman Daryl Palumbo would put many a poet to shame with his intensely personal reflections. But, rather than being downbeat and lurid the band have created 50 minutes of the most life-affirming music I have ever heard. If the least you have is only a passing interest in fresh and exciting talent then this is more than vital. While anyone with more than a passing interest should already have this masterpiece. Buy it yesterday.

This album is a 100%, bona fide classic. The main thing that hits you right from the crazy discordant opening of "Pretty Lush" is the sheer amount of emotion that these guys put into their music. Frontman and lyricist Daryl Palumbo is startlingly honest and it feels like you can feel his soul bleeding through the speakers each time you listen to songs like "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence" (about Crohn's disease) and the brilliant "Motel Of The White Locust". The interplay between the guitarists Justin Beck and Todd Weinstock is also fresh sounding, managing to add to the songs whilst remaining completely interesting musically as single entities. The production, by Ross Robinson, who is perhaps best known for producing the debut Korn album, also reflects the mood of the music - ragged and raw, at times grating like gravel in a fresh wound. It must be said that this album IS NOT an easy listen, by any stretch of the imagination, but it IS a VITAL one. In a world where music is ruled by plastic rock and pop acts with fake angst and no soul, we need bands like Glassjaw even more.

About 6 months ago, I went to Virgin with my friend Bob. 'Check this out!', he said, pointing to a pale album cover in the 'Metal' section. I was perplexed. Bob likes punk rock and mogwai. In spite of this, he bought EYEWTKAS, and I thought no more of it. Two days later, Bob rang me up. 'You know that album?' he said. 'Yes?'. 'I think it might be the best album in the world. I think it might actually be the best album I have ever heard in my life.' (bob owns 'blood on the tracks' and 'come on die young'). Duly impressed, I borrowed it... There is no more passionate, explosive, frank, self-destructive, insane, excellent-record-but-maybe-with-the-occasional-bad-metal-riff-affair album in the world. The lead singer declaims like his life depended on it. The guitars fuzz and clang. It is merciless, relentless, unhinged, tragic, lovely and intensely, intensely heartfelt. 5 f'cking stars.

From the opening few seconds of 'pretty lush' you know this is going to be an cracking listen. Over three years old, 'Everything you ever wanted to know about silence', was what bought Glassjaw their fame and (mis)fortune. Definetly better than their new album, 'Worship and Tribute', its more intense and more honest. Highlighting lead singer, Daryl Palambo's struggle with Crohn's disease and a relationship gone wrong. I think it's one of the most inspiring,thoughtful and intense albums to date, not to mention that very few ''emocore'' albums since its release have equalled it in it's honesty and power.

In the wake of the new emo zeitgeist, it's often hard to remember just how powerful the work of some of the previous post-hardcore bands was. Bands like Rival Schools have more emotional weight behind their one album than Fall Out Boy have in their entire career; and then there's Glassjaw. Fronted by the prolific, if troubled, Daryl Palumbo, Glassjaw have released two albums in their decade-plus career and yet still managed to sell out a handful of gigs this time last year in days. Their third album is still hotly anticipated, even after all this time - and it's because of just how good their first two records are.

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.
