Two tracks into this disc, it strikes me that maybe Silverstein is upset about something. Somebody's shouting about somebody lying and, well, that's all you really need to know. Fucking emo. It's all hardcore, with heavy guitars, and sometimes shifts to a quiet, mellower tempo with moodier guitar work so they can bang back in again to, like, make a point or something. I hate the guttural screaming like a monster - why do emo bands have to do that? Don't they understand they sound just like every other fucking emo band? And it's all about girls girls girls. Lost love, etc, cuz emo boys think people are interested in their sad love lives. And, of course, emo fans are. So rock on, Silverstein. To each his or her own.
Silverstein hit Centre Island for Wakestock Saturday (August 13).
