Never before have I been so moved by a cd. Glassjaw's "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence" is an epic journey into the depths of a human's innermost feelings. It will leave you reeling from an emotional rollercoaster of that through which we experience in life.
Musically, Glassjaw is emo-core at its best; a perfect blend of hard and fast, and melodic and beautiful, mixed with moments of punk/metal. The drums, bass, and guitars are all quite solid, no one instrument outperforms the others, as they play together in sync creating music that is defined and mature. Overall, the music is nothing that I have not heard before, fairly straightforward with little experimentation, but this is not really a problem as the music is merely a complement for the band's true talent: their emotional truthfulness.
Vocalist Daryl Palumbo exhibits something that very few singers today have; raw, heartfelt, emotion. The true essence of emo-core. On these twelve songs Palumbo pours out his innermost feelings through poetic lyrics expressing his anger, hate, love, pain, desire, and loneliness experienced through life, all of which will sweep the listener along to places they have never before been, awakening that which they tried so hard to keep hidden. It is this unbridled release of emotions that truly make this music so special.
There is no one song that shines above the others. Each song may speak a different tale but in reality they are all part of an epic ballad; at one point inciting such feelings where the listener just wants to fight the entire world, at other times evoking the listener to breakdown in a torrent of tears and unimaginable sadness. All I can truly say is that this cd is incredible, a masterpiece of human fragility.

And I thought Taproot was emo-metal....
This CD has touched me in a way I cannot even begin to describe. Ross Robinson pulls together another great production, again showing the world that he isn't a rap-core hack. The album artis bizarre, yet intriguing, and the music is f$3%ing beyond amazing. Daryl Palumbo's voice takes some getting used to (imagine Chino Moreno on a certain powdery-white stimulant), but once you're over that hurdle, it all falls into place. The guitars are heavy enough for Machine Head fans but diverse enough for non-metalheads. The bass is rumbly and earthy in tone, but also has a very independant feel. The music as a whole ranges from such angst-ridden screamers as "Siberian Kiss" and "Hurting And Shoving" to gorgeously melodic tunes like "Her Middle Name Was Boom and "Piano".
Lyrically, Mr. Palumbo turns anger and spite into something beautiful. "Staring at a Parisian sex flick where the characters don't meet, the characters don't speak, the characters are like mirrors facing mirrors - space always expanding". He confronts broken relationships, his unfortunate affliction of Crohn's Disease, and other weighty topics unflinchingly and with intensity unmatched by any other lyricist in the business. Many women have objected to Palumbo's supposedly misogynistic lyrics, although I strongly doubt he would have written them if there wasn't something behind it other than pure bigotry.
Overall, one of the most disturbing, compelling and honest records I've heard in a long time. Buy, beg, steal...

Glassjaw's debut CD, "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence," can't be described in words. Anything I say here won't do it justice, because this CD is nothing less than a soul-awakening experience from the most emotionally honest band I've ever heard. At times, Glassjaw can be blisteringly heavy and aggressive, but the next second they're playing the most melodically beautiful and heartbreaking chorus you've ever heard. The album is a rollar-coaster of emotions; I've never before been so moved by a CD.
People have compared Glassjaw to bands like the Deftones, Radiohead, and Far. There are slight sililarities to all those bands, but Glassjaw is really a band all their own.
The vocalist, Daryl, has said that if you can't relate to this music, you've never had your heart broken. I would certainly agree. For everyone out there who feels depressed, heartbroken, or alone, pick up a copy of this CD. You're not alone.

it is very seldom that in heavy, guitar laden music you happen upon a group of intelligent, emotionally mature, young men (boys?) that express themselves in an articulate, concise, meaningful manner. however, in this popular era of unoriginal clones, testosterone driven drivel, and (dear lord forbid) that completely talentless idiot ..., we have a true beacon. an oasis amid these foolish sands. glassjaw. i wouldn't dare to delve into a critique of this record, as i am sure it would do their creative bent no sort of justice. but i will say this: if ever you need to be bolstered by something that is entirely empathetic and knows exactly "how it feels", turn to this record. it speaks to the soul and heals.....

Even though he may hate to hear it, Daryl will be right up there with John Lennon one day when it comes to rock music. He really has shared his emotions with a lot of people, whether it be Glassjaw, or Head Automatica.

Starting off as a Long Island hardcore group, Glassjaw matured a lot by the time they released this album. Back during their hardcore day, they were still just an amazing band -- I really wish they would re-record 'Match Book, Black Book' for a new album.. It really deserves more attention!

Regardlessly, EYEWTKAS isn't an album that bashes women. Matter of fact, Daryl himself has proven himself to be very loving and compassionate about women. This album is about relationships, and one specific woman in his life.

Daryl claims every song he ever wrote was somehow based on a Godzilla movie, and that may just add a lot of charm to this album, because the sometimes disorienting lyrics do end up having an impact after a few listens.

But what can be said? This is my favorite album of all time. I still listen to it all the time. I even know many girls whom love this album! I believe anyone whom has been in love can relate with how Daryl feels.

Some of the songs also reflect on a time in Daryl's life where he was, well, alone. Or more specifically incredibly lonely. Which is understandable when you're stuck in the hospital for long amounts of time due to an uncommon sickness. (Crohn's disease.) Fortunately, it's not a deadly disease, and Daryl has finally gotten all the good things he deserves in life.

This is an intelligent album -- There's aggression, but it's not mindless. This is a brand new type of music no other band will ever come close to reproducing. It's even emotional enough to make you cry.
