I looked at the CDs they had at the "listening station" (anyone besides me remember when they had those?) and I saw that strange little green frog on the cover. I had absolutely no idea who Silverchair was but something made me give it a go.
I listened to Israel's Son and that was it. I got it on the spot. I liked a few of those songs a lot, but didn't think it was a masterpiece or anything. I did however think that I should keep my eye on Dan's writing ability (as well as their musicianship.) By Freak Show, with songs like Cemetery and Petrol & Chlorine, I could tell Dan was headed in a much more compositional, artistic direction. But I still wasn't amazed. But when Neon Ballroom came out and I heard Emotion Sickness, I realized I was listening to a budding genius.
By the time Diorama came out, I knew what he could do, but still wasn't prepared for the brilliance of that album.
At this point, I've learned not to doubt Dan's writing talent and even though I think YM could have been better, I know what he is capable of - and I look forward to every album Silverchair comes out with from now on.
i just want to say that i'm in love with you that's all!
