    Dear world. On behalf of my fellow Australians, I would like to formally apologise for the complete loss of chutzpah displayed by our alleged rock royalty, Silverchair. We truly are very sorry indeed. We know Young Modern is our nation's "Have A Nice Day" (Bon Jovi) or "Heathen Chemistry" (Oasis) but may I remind you that we did give you The Avalanches "Since I Left You" so Dear world.

    The pretense of complexity makes for a zero. Silverchair are washed-up. If the band Bush made an album with songs that have more than four notes, would it be worth praising? No room for post-grunge redemption. Van Dyke's sweeping strings can't help. America has better music to absorb than this.

    Worst album I've bought so far this year. Have been a fan of these guys since day one but this piece of work is off to the pawnshop I'm afraid. I see nothing original or captivating in this album at all. I would give it a zero but the vocals are pretty good.

  1. Young Modern is a highly ambitious work that happily jumps from glam rock to sweeping orchestral pastiches and almost everywhere in between.
  2. The entire album is seamless and offers new facets with each listen.
  3. Young Modern is a polished glam-rock suite, boasting more ecstatic melodies and colorful riffs than their four previous efforts combined.
