If I think back it was when I saw Freak on rage (aus music show), which would've been late 1996 or early 1997. I was too young to get into them during frogstomp (same as Nirvana at the time) as I would've been like 8 but I remember seeing the frog poster everywhere. I once heard that Daniel broke his nose in a stage diving incident (where everyone moved out of the way) and laughed because I wasn't a fan and had never heard their music.
I saw the Freak video with my sisters and we were like 'Whoa they grew up! This is the best thing I've ever seen!'
Anyway that is about 11 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. It was so exciting seeing their new videos each time after freak because we hadn't heard the songs yet, and we were always very impressed. When I bought Neon Ballroom in year 7 I was like in shock it was so good. The videos are always great to watch but the ones for Neon Ballroom always got audible gasps at how sick Daniel looked.

oh man, i had to wait for Diorama to arrive in the mail and it SUCKED! With YM, i just cheated and streamed it when i could. But with Diorama, i had really NO idea what to expect. i had heard a snippet of Greatest View (these were back in my dial-up days so i didn't bother with a full download) but otherwise I was in the dark.
I ripped open the package and stuck that bad boy in my player and I was nearly FLOORED. Loved it all from the very beginning! I remember just being shocked and overwhelmed by the fact that that sound was coming from silverchair! I remember my first impression was "wow, really Elliot Smith" but i think that was only because of the melodies and highly-evolved songwriting. Amazing.
And, about 29043398557943875 plays later, its still amazing
