iTunes Review

On 2002’s Diorama, we find Silverchair’s meaty grunge riffs softening into beautiful piano ballads like “After All These Years.” “Across the Night” invites the listener into a luxurious expanse of sound, where Daniel Johns’ worn-in falsetto blends with layered horn and string arrangements by Van Dyke Parks. “Tuna in the Brine” and “Luv Your Life” ascend to dreamy, cascading pop tunes, but on the ferocious, churning riffs of “The Lever” and “The Greatest View,” the trio resurrects its hard rock roots.

Customer Reviews

Under rated

This is by far one of the most under rated albums. They have come a long way since Frogstomp. Everything about this album is genius. You have to give it a shot if you haven't heard it.

Awesome!

I love this album! I've listened to it many times, but don't get tired of it. Diorama goes from calm to hard guitar in One Way Mule, then calms down again, but gets hard yet again with The Lever. After that, My Favourite Thing and After All These Years soothe you and lay you down on a soft pillow. I can't get enough of this album!

the forgotten masterpiece

I was obsessed with Silverchair and Daniel Johns from the moment I heard "Tomorrow". I bought all their albums up through Neon Ballroom when I realized I wasn't digging the sound as much anymore. Then I got this (as a loyal fan) and was immediately and profoundly disappointed. So I listened to it again. Then again. And again. And one more time. And that's when I realized it might have been the most heart-wrenchingly BRILLIANT collection of songs I'd ever heard. I was 16 then and this album was my Rubber Soul. Diorama is a musical revelation, intimately capturing the progression of a young, bristling band into an intelligent, artistically motivated group of adults. This isn't commercial in the least...it's raw, gutteral and intense but it's also emotional and beautiful, a swirling orchestral carnival of pop. It pains me how it's been disregarded here in the US, and I agree with everyone else, it's been massively underrated. The other day, I played a few songs for a friend who hadn't heard any of their work since Freak Show and she was flabbergasted (in a good way). The people who don't understand this album are obviously coming from a dull, bull-headed musical background. In the comments section of Young Modern, someone who gave the album one star denounced it by saying, "This sounds like the Beatles." Right. The Beatles are TERRIBLE! Who would disagree?

Biography

Formed: 1992 in Newcastle, Australia

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Silverchair quickly rose to international stardom in 1995 by mining a mix of Nirvana and Pearl Jam on their debut album, Frogstomp. Buoyed by the angst-ridden single "Tomorrow," Frogstomp topped the Australian charts and cracked the Top Ten in America, making Silverchair the first Australian act since INXS to enjoy such success in the States. The three bandmates gained just as much recognition for their age; at the time Frogstomp was recorded, they were all 15 years old. Although grunge's popularity...
