DaveNSep 22, 2006This is the best CD of the 21st century. Silverchair has always been 2 steps ahead of their musical peers in terms of song writing and Diorama just makes the competition that much worse in comparison. They improved drastically what they were aiming for in Neon Ballroom. 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 »
ManionApr 12, 2006Despite what has been said above, Diorama IS a masterpiece with few and minor flaws. Negative reviews of this album consistently stem from jaded whingers whose blind criticisms are a result of either being unable to move on from the early grunge (created by the then 15 year olds, of course you will hear their influences) or heavy sounds, or being unable to accept that this band has talent (which - god forbid - contradicts the perception of Silverchair they have so deeply branded onto their brains) and possibly more than their favourite band. Those drowning in their own self-satisfaction as they dismiss Diorama as soft, or boring, or who focus on the TWO heavier songs, and like sheep stupidly label them grunge or Nirvana rip-offs, should get down from wherever they are that so obviously elevates them above all those who appreciate the talent and efforts and growth of Silverchair. Any real fan of Nirvana, myself included, will tell you that Silverchair never sounded anything like Nirvana and certainly dont now. Its just a lazy comparison made by musically uneducated. Pearl Jam, Soundgarden with Sabbath and Zeppelin, but not Nirvana. Diorama has a distinct feel to it, as any good album should. Pop sensibility and melody link the styles of expression explored on Diorama. and as every great album does: it can have you jumping around your room singing along one minute and crying on your bed the next (all figures of speech lol). Diorama is well worth getting, and the only reason i didnt give it a 10 is because i've heard the songs live and theyre performed with even more skill and expertise of vocal expression. This is an album of pure beauty, theatrics, drama and (intentional) melodrama and rockin tunes that deserve any praise they get. Cant wait for the new album!!… Full Review »
