5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best pop albums in years June 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I can't say enough about this album. I was introduced to this band while shopping at H&M and I found myself dancing and singing to "What's the Drawback" while browsing the racks by myself. Once I came to my senses and realized that I was making a fool of myself and why, I whipped out Shazam and ID'd this tune, then ran home and downloaded the whole album. It's rare that I assign high star ratings to nearly every single tune on an album, but this is one of those finds. Full of lush harmonies, easy, breezy guitars and pianos, and even a fiddle thrown in on occasion. Standout tracks are the road-trip tune "What's the Drawback", the reflective tone of "From My Windowsill", and perfectly capturing teenage melancholy with the lyrics of "Kid".

5.0 out of 5 stars Top stuff October 13, 2010
By Brim
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Top stuff indeed for those of us who like harmony and melody. Chateau Revenge! continues on the trajectory set on Hight Society. The production is fuller and the instrumentation is slightly less folky giving way to a slightly warmer, fuller and 'spacier' sound akin to the French group Phoenix.

If I had to make a guess as to where Tashien et al will sail The Silver Seas next, given the directions and sensibilities that the album hints at, I have in mind Birth's virtually ignored masterpiece 'Gotten Bold' which I guarantee any fan of The Silver Seas will love.

Anyway I'm already looking forward to the next album.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Only Sweet Revenge Would Be Making The Billboard 100 September 18, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
The editorial review does great justice to the indie/soft/country rock of The Silver Seas. After yet another solid release following the tremendously underrated High Society of a few years ago, yet again The Silver Seas put together another lush album of immediately catchy melodies and harmonies that rewards the listener who can't stand the majority of the junk of popular music today. However, I disagree with comments saying that this album would be better suited for the 1970s. The music is crisp and feels modern--it is just too "quality" for today's pathetic musical tastes and to meet the bubble-gum or R&B flavor of MTV.

With regards to the album, I presume the reader has heard of The Silver Seas' former two albums. As aforementioned, High Society is a must purchase. Nearly every track is brilliant, catchy, and single-worthy. I hope the band got paid nicely for providing the music to a popular Kenmore TV commercial because I figure the album didn't line the charts with Brittany or JT or Diddy. So once you buy High Society, Chateau Revenge is a proper follow up. Similar to past albums, Chateau Revenge is a breezy album that is like a great novel--immersing from the get go and hard to put down. Chateau Revenge could be on track 7 before you realize where the time went.

All that being said, I slightly prefer the tracks from High Society. Even though the makeup of tracks is similar--some bouncy, some melancholy, many reflecting lost or impossible-to-get loves--I somewhat prefer the actual songs of High Society. They just seem a bit more catchy than Chateau Revenge. Nevertheless, buy this album and support this great Nashville outlet. Let's teach Hollywood that good music can be highly popular if well promoted! BTW--if the band is reading this, how about getting a tour going? That, and please start promoting your wonderful music to the industry--you deserve the acclaim!

5.0 out of 5 stars Desrerves wider recognition July 18, 2010

Daniel Tashian is one of the most underrated songwriters and performers currently around - great pop/rock melodies with an equally quality production. Get it - you won't be disapointed. Their High Society album is also full of great songs!

By LarryA
Format:MP3 Music
The newest release by The Silver Seas(nee The Bees) is their best yet.Sounding in modern rock, yet harking back to the best of rock's past,Daniel Tashian and company have crafted an album that is the perfect soundtrack for the summer.Sing along choruses,multiple instrumentation and good old fashioned song writing make this album a joy to listen to from first track to last. Highly recommended!
