    seriously, eh?!?! I was about 10 years late to the party on that one. Their entire catalogue is worth a listen. Every record literally evolves.

    A perfect album. Glad I saw them on the Neon Ballroom tour...at their peak.  Saw them in 97 for Freak Show and 2007 for Young Modern too, but those 1999 U.S. theater shows were incredible.

    I have nothing to compare, but man, they sounded tight and the one thing that really stood out was just how heavy they sounded for a 3 piece. Not seen one since that sounded that awesome. I felt bad for the acts that followed on that bill cos’ they left it all on the stage that ARVO.

    I have always regretted never seeing them live. Neon Ballroom and Diorama was their peak IMO, but I loved all the albums. Actually listened to Freak Show just recently and forgot how good that is too. Their live release (something Stables?) is quite incredible and makes me regret even more never catching them.

    saw them in 99 on the edgefest tour. just recalled that tour was headlined by Hole. I remember Courtney Love dissing Silverchair, daniel in particular, as copying Kurt. I wonder if that was after the tour or before?

    shit. I'm just listening to Neon Ballroom now based on what you guys said about it. I kind of dismissed it based on Anthem For The Year 2000 (I just found the lyrics so cheesy and eventually would be so dated, which they are). But man, this album is awesome.

    Yup, that Live From Faraway Stables box set is incredible.  Beautiful show and they included both audio and video.  Wish that tour had come to the U.S., but glad we have that release at least.

    The last time I saw them was a co headlining tour with Powderfinger. They played arenas here in Australia. Also saw them in smaller theatres too. That live album sure is sweet! Here in Melbourne I saw that tour and they played at the Palais Theatre where Ed did his solo shows a few years back. Such a great blend of what they could do and showcased all their albums (except for young modern which was yet to be released).

    Whoa, @Hugh Freaking Dillon Hole headlined the same festival I saw Silverchair at. Courtney flashed her vagina several times during the show. I actually don't mind their first few records.

    Daniel's been posting pics of him recording over the last 2 years, including a few with his Fugazi guitar. The drummer, Ben Gillies, has a solo EP or at least a few singles that he's put out in the last few months that are decent too. Not great, but better than that Dreams album Daniel did
    I am wired and fading...

    Yes, really like Ben's first single and the others are solid too. 
    Dreams was dreadful for me.....

    I didn't even know this existed! Going to start it after the next work meeting.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

  • The series was quite revealing and heartbreaking. It’s a miracle Johns is still alive honestly. Would love to hear the canned version of Young Modern, but doubt that will ever happen.
