5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT CD February 18, 2000
By The Bas
Format:Audio CD
I have had 'Frogstomp' since it was released in Australia (where I lived for most of the 90's), and I was VERY skeptical of these lads at first (and all the Nirvana in Pajamas jokes that were going around). However, I must say that these kids put out one hell of a good album that brings me back to some of my rock roots of the 70's as well as the 'flannel/grunge' sound of the time. They had a lot of competitition, but in spite of that put out a rather impressive debut CD that still gets regular rotation amidst my collection. They pull off the heavy as well as the mellow, and the funny thing about this CD is that I really can't put a GRUNGE stamp on it like most of the public is just a great collection of rockers (a few duds, but I almost expect that of the best of the best these days).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, Especially Coming From Teens August 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The guys of Silverchair where still in their thrird year of High School when they won a contest ad got an Epic records record deal. Although they are mis-represented as Nirvana/Pearl Jam rip-offs, these guys manage to have their own sound. From the first track, the loud, grinding bass will cach your attention. And this onslaught doesn't end there, by the time u get to "Undecided" you'll think you've heard what they can do, but it doesn't even compare to these two tracks: "Undecided" and "Cicada". "Undecided" has the coolest base line I've heard in a long time, and "Cicada" is an neat song with a strong message.
These guys have talents and they continue to evolve through their career. Good buy

4.0 out of 5 stars Im confused... January 31, 2004
By Cancer
Format:Audio CD
I have heard far too many people compare this band to Nirvana. I personally cannot believe Nirvana fans would stoop so low as to compare this band to (possibly) their own personal favourite artists. Silverchair is like Nirvana...probably in content times...other than that...NADA!
There is this other little known band, you might have heard of them, called Stone Temple Pilots which Silverchair sounds a lot like in my mind. Think about it (the vocals especially) and I think you will agree. The depressing metal-ish songs are also somewhat reminicent of another little known (sarcasm) grunge band known as Alice in Chains.
To put it bluntly, it seems like some Nirvana fans thought Silver sounded remotely like Nirvana and jumped on them for "biting" their style. My opinion is that Silverchair was comprised of young kids who loved the grunge sound and, as many artists have had occasion to do so in the past, emulated bands they may have been influenced by. Most bands dont develop their own sound for at least a few albums. Take the vines for instance (please!), they sound like everything from the Beatles to (ironically...or maybe not) Nirvana. Yet I have faith in the Vines, as I did with Silverchair, that they would develop their own sound and ween themselves from the days of playing air guitar to their favourite group. To assume a band could (especially at such a young age)completely sever themselves from their influences is a ridiculous expectation and rarely ever happens.
Yep...thats basically what I was thinking...

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer genius post grunge album August 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
i was in the second grade and reeling after the loss of mr. cobain and wondering where i could turn for a grungy sound in wake of nirvana.enter silverchair, whose debut "frogstomp" crept into my life in 1995 and hasn't left it since.i ALWAYS come back to this album, which says alot because i buy cds at a rabid's my breakdown:

1. israel's son: 10/10 outstanding song the bass intro is sick and the extremely heavy ending is out of this world

2. tomorrow: 10/10 the song that put silverchair over the top forever and a favorite track of my life-brilliant song

3. faultline: 10/10 very emotional track about daniel losing a freind in an earthquake-the breakdown in the middle towards the end is very groove heavy

4. pure massacre: 10/10 raw and brutal this one just doesn't stop from second number one

5. shade: 10/10 silverchair decides to mellow out for this one and it comes off as very heartfelt and and extremely well laid out grungy mellow rock track-superb

6. leave me out: 10/10 it took awhile for this song to kick in but now that it has it has become on of my favorites

7. suicidal dream: 7/10 this song just doesnt seemt o fit in witht he rest of the disc-i mean its decent but there is something missing

8. madman: 10/10 a crazy instrumental which has a very punk vibe to it-the vocal version rocks too

9. undecided: 8/10 this song is pretty good but it tends to drag along at parts

10. cicada: 20/10: my favorite song on this cd it is the most grunge heavy and pure sounding song on here-simply incredible

11. findaway: 8/10 decent ending fairly heavy with another punk beat-couldve been better but good nonetheless

this album is just pure of my all time favorites.i bow down to these 15 year olds (at thte time) for their mature work.brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some very cool parts. September 4, 2004
By matt07
Format:Audio CD
I think it is absolutely REDICULOUS that any time a long, blonde haired male being opens his mouth and sings, he is compared to Kurt Cobain and considered a rip off. Nirvana is the main reason I even started playing music and I'm a musician myself and I know that, yes, you can hear grunge in Silverchair, but if anything, it's more Pearl Jam-ish, not NIRVANA! It's rediculous. For 15/16 year olds, there is some AWESOME stuff on this album. Some of the lyrics, I find cheesy and could have been better written but if you say this band doesn't have talent, I think there very well could be a slight hint of, oh, I don't know, JEALOUSY? I rate this album 4 stars because some of the lyrics weren't very great and I don't particularly care for 1 or 2 songs, but this album is still just awesome. It shouldn't just be Daniel Johns who always gets all the credit, though. Theres a drummer and bassist in this band, you know...Chris and Ben...yeah, those guys, they deserve some credit for their talent, too. Nirvana rip-offs...what a joke. Anybody who knows a good bit about music knows this band isn't a Nirvana rip-off. Yes they sounded a lot like other bands at that time, yet they still somehow pulled off a halfway original sound, but every bands first CD at least sounds a little bit like someone else, because everyone has their of Silverchair's members admitted that HIMSELF...I'm not sure which one it was but I saw where one of them had said it. Bottom line, pretty good album, they're better than a lot of bands out there. They could kick Simple Plan and Good Charlotte and all that pop-punk mess ANYDAY.
