CDs light scratched - .Label: Pias.Published: 2001
Seafood are the archetypal indie band: chaotic, dysfunctional and frantic. One minute they're breathing new vigour and life into punk with gut wrenching guitars and some neat, Nine Inch Nails-styled technological wizardry (such as the smashing and crashing "Guntrip"), the next they're turning all melodic (as on the jaunty "Easy Path"--a sweet little melody edged with lo-fi beats and the odd jagged guitar). Then, as if their flitting from nasty to polite rock from song to song wasn't hectic enough, they start doing it within the same track, as "Belt" cuts from savage distortion outbursts to delicate vocals and wobbly melodies. Sounding like it was recorded in a garage with cheap guitars, lots of energy, mixed emotions and the occasional countrified guitar ("Dear Leap The Ride"), Surviving The Quiet isn't exactly revolutionary, and it's not going to change your life. But its therapeutic rock assaults and heartwarming laments might just make your world a nicer place. --Dan Gennoe

Seafood are potentially every bit as good as a Pavement, yet not being originators on the scene people may knock that against them. The anxious Gun-Trip starts off the album like a steam-roller, destroying everything in its path (like all good album openers should, which beats why they swapped this track down to track 6 on the U.S release) then they follow it up with the sparkling melodic yet explosive one, two punch of Easy Path and Belt, should be commended not bemoaned about. Dear Leap The Ride, shows of their acoustic arm and though a come down from the first too tracks it is another winner with some really nicely pulled off intricate guitar lines.
This Is Not An Exit, actually manages to put the first 3 tracks in the shade, no mean feat, it is their most direct and infectious song yet, with the guitar and bass working in tight unison with each other, yet also having the room to show individual flair and a song with a lyric as good as ' a twist of a knife, can only bring us closer' is pretty much off to be a winner anyway. Do they come down after it? ...Read more ›
It turned out to be the best impulse buy I've ever made. The album starts with a huge rush of energy combined with brutal guitar assault and aggressive vocals. It gives way to the lilting, indie buzz of Easy Path with its floaty guitar. I cannot stress how fantastic each song is here. Many songs have whirling instrumental parts with delicate guitar wanderings thrown in for good measure, just the sort of thing I love. The perfect pop tune of This Is Not An Exit, with its opening line "you know, like the last person alive you can't complain" is an amazing jump around feel-good song, whilst always retaining meaningful lyrics and interesting musicianship.
Beware Design is just drummer Caroline accompanied by the gentle strum of a guitar. This song is touching and really demonstrates the diversity of a band that is concerned with making good music, not just bashing their guitars around to make noise.
One of my top five albums ever, if you enjoy Smashing Pumpkins I would advise you to get this album.
