*****
diese site scheint kein spezialist für diese gruppe zu sein..einer ihrer "singlehits" 1997 #34 in GB..
****
Good
***
ok, von freak her hätte ich gerne mehr abgefahrenes erwartet. so gelangweilt wie er "i'm a freak" singt. bischen will er denke ich wie cobain nachmachen. versucht mörderisch nach nirvana zu klingen.

vergleiche "Come As You Are"
*****
One of their best
******
Awesome.
**
Horrible! Incredibly stupid lyrics and plodding guitar 'riff', sounds like a pre-Nickelback song

the structure isn't so bad though which makes it a bit less formulaic

An ok song. UK#34.
******
wicked silverchair track.


YEAAAAAAAAAAAA I'M A FREAKKKKK
**
Metallica or Motorhead could have sung this.
****
anständiges Post-Grunge-Stück der Australier, das sich tatsächlich schwer nach Nirvana anhört – 3.75...
****
Nikki Webster, Hanson or Puff Daddy could also have sung this.

Great track, very cool.

#13 TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100 (1997)

Spent two weeks atop of my personal chart.

A classic by Silverchair!
**
Very dumb lyrics I agree. They have so many songs that are waaay better than this.
*****
Not as good as 'Tomorrow' and some of their later stuff, but it's still a damn fine rock track! The video is a bit off-putting though.
***
The guitar is quite impressive, but the droning vocals and ordinary lyrics drag it down.
****
4 stars
***
Average.
**
Crap actually. Hate the vocals and the lyrics are pretty stupid as well. Really quite a dire listening experience. Every time I hear it I think of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which is another song I don't like. Hate that it got to #1, "Break My Stride" is a million times better and deserved to be there instead of this.

Awesome track!

Krasse Mucke, erinnert an Nirvana.

I'd rather listen to the Spice Girls in 1997, at least they were some what original. Silver Chair got the best push Australian music has ever seen, only reason they had success. Their music was all lifted from other bands, lyrics rubbish.
