    Dead Silence is by far the most multifaceted album by Billy Talent. It is very interesting to listen to. Brilliant musical pieces with great lyrics, as we already know them from Billy Talent. The whole album is a little differnet from the previous albums, without losing the well-known Billy Talent sound. I can highly recommend this album to anybody who loves Billy Talent, but also to people that enjoy Bands like Rise Against, Sum 41... Overall Brilliant Full Review »

    I liked Billy Talent very much, I really did! But this album is just awful. The band has completely lost his soul. Every song has no power, no character. There are just tracks of guitar, bass passages and vocal lines but there's no Music here! Do you like five-minutes boring, tuneless songs? You're more than welcome to listen to Dead Silence! I feel very disappointed. I'm back to Saint Veronica, to Fallen Leaves or Rusted from the Rain. The title, Dead Silence, means something. Firstly it's Billy Talent's dead. Secondly, the band should really stop playing the crap like that. Full Review »

    All in all, not a bad album. It has a few standout tracks, notably the title track and the singles 'Viking Death March' and 'Surprise Surprise'. The rest of the tracks on the album are mostly filler and lack any real cohesiveness. Full Review »
