Silverchair: Neon Ballroom

Sound — 10
This album, the third from ozzie rockers Silverchair, is a much more mature sound compared to Frogstomp and Freak Show. Grown up guitars and powerful drum beats make for a great listen. They also incorporated a lot of orchestral vibes on this album.

Lyrics — 8
Fantastic lyrics again by Daniel Johns, (Ana's Song) "Ana wrecks your life, like an anorexia life", Quality. Really heart-felt lyrics, something hurt Daniel pretty bad. His voice just gets better with age and I think this band will go the distance.

Overall Impression — 10
This is the most melodic album prior to Diorama. Excellent melodies and a few superb ballads. Standout tracks would be "Emotion Sickness", "Ana's Song", "Miss You Love", and Black Tangled Heart". I just love the emotion and feeling on this record. I'd reccomend this album and their others to anyone who likes grunge, and I would definetly buy it again if I lost it.
