    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 toDead Silence is by far the most multifaceted album by Billy Talent. It is very interesting to listen to.

    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.

    More often than not, this is pop punk as it should be: direct, streamlined and raucous but of enough substance that preachy points are made within nagging, urgent choruses. [Oct 2012, p.93]

    Overall, the sound on Dead Silence isn't that different from the band's previous work, but is certainly some of the best work they've done.

    [Dead Silence] sounds exactly like what you'd expect from the maturing Mississauga pop-punk band: more middle-of-the-road radio-friendly guitar rock, with less punk energy and more classic rock than in their younger years.
