Editorial Reviews

After spending the last two years cemented to the Billboard New Artist Chart, Silverstein's debut album, When Broken Is Easily Fixed, was forcibly retired from the chart after selling over 150,000 copies. Now, with their follow up album, Discovering The Waterfront, Silverstein are ready to leave the New Artist Chart behind and spend the next two years in the Top 200! With comparisons ranging from The Get Up Kids to Thursday and My Chemical Romance, Silverstein is a melting pot of musical creativity that shines in every moment of Discovering The Waterfront. The powerful melodies and gut wrenching screams of vocalist Shane Told evoke the pain, struggle and emotion of the lyrics, expressing raw heartbreak and frustration. With Discovering The Waterfront, Silverstein delivers an album that is both musically intense and emotionally honest. Discovering The Waterfront is set to make Silverstein the future of rock music. 2005.

I would say that Silverstein is breaking even here. It's not quite at the level mediocrity, nor is it a sell-out record by any means, these guys did deliver...but I felt semi-short changed after the last track was said and done.

Vocally it's more medolic at times, and although the amount of screaming is reduced in comparison to "When Broken Is...", the abscence of that was balanced out with the instrumentals. The first half of the album is stunning, the rest kinda/sorta gives you a mesh of redundancy. I would've really liked to hear the entire thing push the envelope with the intricate sound that was written all over the first 5 tracks. Had they done that, "Discovering.." could've been the strongest piece of work to date for the band. I was very impressed, but not as impressed as I had anticipated to be.

Highlights:

My Sword Vs. Your Dagger -- A good opener, probably the most aggressive track. There really aren't many others that come close to the pace of 'My Sword' -- though, had it been put somewhere in the middle of the album, it would've stuck out as the remaining songs go on to be a little more indifferent.

Fist Wrapped in Blood -- Really complex. After hearing this on purevolume a while back I was definately blown away by how many change-ups ran through this song of only 2 minutes and 57 seconds.

The Ides of March -- A bit catchy and predictable at times. It shows how unique these guys can be on a song without screwing it up like most bands do while trying to be innovative. They nailed it.

Discovering The Waterfront -- Hands down the best thing to come out of this record. The only real ballad-esque track, the vocals alone are amazing/haunting, solid from start to finish.

I agree with the person below me on some points. I like the last album, but felt that the lyrics were a bit immature. I was hoping to find a change with the sophmore effort, but i did not. But on the other hand... i listen to a lot of emo/hardcore... so I'm used to lyrics like this. The first four or five songs on Discovering the Waterfront are really a lot heavier than When Broken Is Easily Fixed. There are actually a few attempted breakdowns! I really like the first half of this album. The last half is kind of up-beat and not as heavy... but those songs aren't bad. The SCREAMING IS WAAAAAYYYYY BETTER. That's what i'm most impressed with on this album. I think Silverstein gets my vote for most improved band... for now.

I Have listened to both Discovering the Water Front and When Broken is Easily Fixed but i have to say DTWF is much much better. Unlike many modern bands who enhance their voices to make them sound better SIlverstein dosent do it and they sound great. I saw them live in pittsburgh in october and it was amazing. All of their songs are good to listen to unlike some bands who have boring terrible songs just to fill space on the album. Currently my favorite song on the album is Call it Karma but i still think all the other songs are great too. Overall if you like emo/scremo music buy it see how you like it u might be supprised.

Lately, a lot of bands that I like have released sophomore albums that haven't really been up to par. EX- Emery's The secret.

At first I was skeptical about this one because I really liked when broken is easilly fixed but with all the bad 2nd tries happening lately, I assumed it would not be worth the money, that I should just wait an buy it used. Well, finally I broke and decided to get her...

Wow, good idea! This album is in no way a weak follow up to the band's debut. In fact it much improves on their sound. it's catchier, more technical, and just better. The one beef I had with Silverstien's debut was that for every awesome song on there, following it would be one after it that would be slow and sucky. That doesn't occur nearly as much on here. There's only like 2 slow songs and they aren't that bad either. So your getting a more band for your buck here.

I also must say that the dudes have really given themselves a tune up. Sure the same Silvertien song structure is here: the usual slow sad and catchy intro followed by the rest of the song that manages to pick you up and throw you across the room.

Not only that, but the guitar work is a lot more technical here. I admit at first listen, some of the riffs here sounded a bit trivial at times, but after you get used to it, things start to come together. Plus, the drumming on here is done a lot better than last time around. The fills aren't repetive as was the case sometimes on WBIEF.

However, I so have a few problems with this one. Remember when I said that this one was a lot catchier that WBIEF. Well, in the process of "popifying" the sound, they sacrifice a lot of the heaviness they used to have.

At first, I thought Silverstein was just some run-of-the-mill emo crap like Aiden, but after listening to 30-second clips of their songs it intrigued me to buy their CD.

The opening song, "Your Sword VS My Dagger" seemed to be an aggressive grab into the ambience of the bombardment of percussion and kick-in-the-throat-screaming seemed to start off well, giving you the feeling of being tossed into a hurricane. When you get sucked into this hurricane, you hear "Smile in Your Sleep" the hit single, but nothing like the rest of the CD. The track resembled some 80s dream pop song with a quick punk pace and occasional screaming of course--the track underscores the twisting and twirling of a hurricane when you enter the eye of the storm. You suddenly land on a dark island with dead trees in the middle of a drafty fall evening after being regurgitated out of the eye of the storm, walk the road and enter into an angsty rage at the sight of a wall of corpses. The next track, "A Fist Wrapped in Blood" takes a Beethoven-esque guitar intro--you set the island on fire, the ghastly aroma of burning corpses arouses all of your senses as you try to "anger the sky" by polluting it with the smells of dead the sky opens up, letting you in. "Discovering the Waterfront", one of the most emotional songs on the CD--the sky opens, letting the slightest wisp of light out, hitting your skin, feeling so secure, trying to make you forgive the sky, but you wake up from the reverie and immerses you into the raging ocean instead, which resembles hell on earth. "Defend You", a dynamic track--emulates the fight between you and the waves but you try to keep your guard up, struggling and being swallowed into hell.
