Casting aside the shackles that accompany any band whose first flush of success comes when its members are still teens, Silverchair makes a fresh start on a new label with their fourth album DIORAMA. Teaming up with producer David Bottrill, this Aussie trio abandon their earlier grunge-fueled sound for a more complex and lush approach more Van Dyke Parks (who contributes orchestral arrangements) than Van Halen. Seemingly more settled in his skin, frontman Daniel Johns operates with a rich tone in his voice that cuts to the heart of the soaring "World Upon Your Shoulders" and equally enchanting "The Greatest View" (featuring Midnight Oil's Jim Moginie. Also noteworthy is "Tuna In The Brine," a cut overflowing with intriguing string arrangements. The DIORAMA created by these talented Aussies turns out to be one of delightful nuance.
