I didn't really enjoy it at first and you need to pull up the lyrics and really listen. One thing that will amaze you is Daniel Johns voice, who would have guessed this was the same singer of Tomorrow? Ten years after this album came out I am still listening to it on a daily basis because it is deep, multidimensional and beautiful. Even if you don't like it you have to admit Silverchair has talent--esp. Johns as he writes, composes pretty much everything and has a lovely, unique voice. He is a terribly underrated singer. Love this! BTW Silverchair is even more awesome live Full Review »

Even with the out of place "One Way Mule" its an exceptional album that has more than blew expectations and made me eager for album number 5. Full Review »
