Sound — 10
Silvertide has a fresh sound from the opening song of "I Ain't Coming Home" til the last track "Foxhole JC". The riffs are awesome. The solos are just flat out amazing. The whole cd has a rocking vibe that makes you want to get up and move.

The lyrics to me are the only let down of this cd. They're nothing great but they could be alot worse. He has a great unique voice and both the vocals and lyrics fit the music perfectly.
Overall Impression — 10
To me this is with out a doubt the best cd of 2004 so far. The standout tracks are "Ain't Coming Home", "Devil's Daughter", "Heart Strong" and "California Rain". I am in love with the album and have been listening to it non stop since I got it. It's very addicting. If it were lost or stolen I would cry all the way to the record store to buy another one!
