  1. Oddly for an album so big in scope... it's very intimate and confessional. [3 Jul 2004, p.64]
  2. Stunningly impressive... It's something that demands to exist beyond iPods, something that should be bought rather than downloaded, and played from start to finish. [Aug 2004, p.108]
  3. Ultimately, The Silent Hours is muscular, conservative rock music.
  4. At its best “The Silent Hours” is a robust, reasonably straight ahead rock record and at its worst, a lumpen, forgettable distraction.
  5. 40
    Such earnestness makes for a terrifically hard slog. [Aug 2004, p.93]
  6. With each track they descend further into the mire.
