Album Review

Although this came out in late 2004, it wouldn't have had that hard of a time passing for a hard rock album of about 30 years earlier, other than for its use of some foul language that even the biggest hard rock acts had a hard time getting through the censors back in the 1970s. In places the sound is very much in the vein of Aerosmith (for whom they've opened on tour), and Nick Perri's vocals often ring with the influence of Robert Plant. Was it something that was really needed? No, and Show & Tell doesn't boast hooks on the order of the biggest '70s hard rock bands. But the enduring popularity of that sound has proved there will always be a market for new bands doing the same thing, even bands whose members weren't born when many of their influences were in their heyday. Silvertide have that sound down cold, along with much of the aggressive posturing that comes with it, including lyrical references to partying, sex, and telling the rest of the world where to get off (on "S.F.C.," which has F-words aplenty). "Foxhole J.C.," cautionary shorthand for "Foxhole Jesus Christ," indicates they have a few other things on their mind too, and a few more lightly executed slower numbers add some variety to this unexceptional retro exercise. [This is the "clean" version of this release.]

Customer Reviews

Great Album, iTunes needs new reviewers

This album rocks, I don't care what year you are living in. It has sounds from the 70s to the latest bands today. I like ever song on this album and so does my wife so it appeals a wide diversity. As for "Nick Perri's vocals" in the review I'm shocked. Uhhh Nick is the guitarist, Walt is lead vocals. Do your homework. Sadly Silvertide has split up. Nick is bouncing around and doing solo stuff. Automatic Fire is a new band just started in 2009 with remaining members of Silvertide.


There are very few rock albums you can listen to from beging to end. This is one. An underrated band that rocks. U will love the CD.

Black Crowes similarity anyone?

I can't believe no one has mentioned the likeness to Black Crowes? First time I heard Devil's Daughter, I thought their was a Black Crowes, or solo Chris Robinson song I hadn't heard before. Too bad this band broke up before I even heard them..


Formed: January, 2001 in Philadelphia, PA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

It isn't unheard of for a post-baby boomer rock band to have some baby boomer influences, either direct or indirect. For example, a post-grunge outfit might claim Creed, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Live as influences but also have traces of Led Zeppelin or the Beatles in its sound. But the post-baby boomers who comprise Silvertide aren't alternative rockers who have some baby boomer influences here and there — they're a post-boomer band with a totally retro hard rock sound that is firmly planted...
