I just got this CD this morning, but it is like the greatest, or second greatest (to [I]Project 86/Truthless Heroes[/I])

I dont really have a favorite song. I actually enjoy them all.
Rock on Blindside!

I bought this cd after hearing Pittiful. When I heard it I was like "WOW!!" What I like most about this cd is tha fact that Christian can sing very softly and then go to screeming and back to soft. All in the same song! I also love the title track "Silence" it is a very soft and sweet love song. You gotta love it when a hard core band records a soft love song.
11 out of 10!

I thought this one was alright, but like all those other cool people said, it just doesn't have anything on the Great Depression. But I just have to say this...Pitiful is quite possibly the most awesomely craptacularific song ever. Has anyone here ever seen the super sweet video for it? They're all in this cube and they're going everywhere and it's crazed out to the max + 2.

Posted on 02-15-2007 by earlessdog
i decided this is their second most solid album, next to TGD, i mean i like AABF more i think, but with silence, pretty much every single song rocks and is listenable, on AABF, there are more songs that i don't listen to, but then again it has songs that are my all time fav songs, such as Eye Of The Storm, Fallow You Down, All Of Us, After You're Gone, About A Burning Fire.

but in the end i'll stick with the fact taht they get better with every album

but silence is still amazing

that video kicks butt, All Of Us is my fav video though

This is one of my Favorite Blindside albums, aside from About A Burning Fire

Posted on 02-15-2007 by zero91
I like this CD a lot. I like pretty much all the songs on here. Just a good, solid, CD. This is the only Blindside CD I have so I can't compare it to thier other CDs, but it is really good.

Posted on 02-15-2007 by akaukal
This album is amazing, but it has nothing on the other albums.

Posted on 02-15-2007 by Adam K
The Great Depression didn't impress me as much.

Posted on 02-15-2007 by akaukal
[QUOTE=Adam K;2805279]The Great Depression didn't impress me as much.[/QUOTE]

The Great Depression is probably the greatest album of all time. They actually did something original rather than staying in the niche they were in with AABF and Silence.

Posted on 02-15-2007 by Adam K
Just because it's original doesn't mean it sounds great.

I didn't say that. I said it was my favorite album [b]and[/b] it was the most original.

Silence kicks it's butt.

[QUOTE=earlessdog;2804653]that video kicks butt, All Of Us is my fav video though[/QUOTE]

I haven't seen that one in years. Is it the one where they're in the woods and he's chasing this chick and so on and so forth...?

Wow....freakin amazing!!!!...[size=+2]10[/size]

Posted on 03-27-2003 by OneWithTheMud
Pitiful is the best song ever! Caught A Glimpse and Sleepwalking are cool too.

Posted on 04-09-2003 by yeah_im_a_freak
This CD has a bunch of sweet songs...Pitiful..Sleepwalking...Caught a Glimpse. Definitely a 10!

Posted on 04-10-2003 by Jetrunner
yea tracks 1, 2, 3 were my favorite songs before i even got the cd, and what do you know! #'s 1,2,3!!! :D awesome cd!

Posted on 04-10-2003 by Dwight Schrute
I gave it a 9 - it is a solid album from start to finish, vocally diverse and mature in its message, musically tight and intricate. The 9 is for the production on Silence, which IMO was not done well and didn't seem to add to the overall sound of the album. I know it was meant to be produced the way it was, but with sucha powerful song the analog record sound and muffle was somewhat out of place for a title track of an album. They are awesome live, and the album is one of my all time favs. But the title track held the album back, I tend to skip that track due to its sound, which is a shame due to its awesome message.

Posted on 04-19-2003 by Juninho Afram
great CD!! i gave it a 10

Posted on 04-27-2006 by akaukal
the best songs on the cd are SLeepwalking, She Shuts Your Eyes, and Time Will Change Your Heart.

Posted on 04-28-2003 by guitar_girl1
hi =0) i read on a cd descriptor somewhere that silence was blindsides hardest cd yet...is this true? i've only heard two songs (pitiful and caught a glimpse), so i can't tell.:rofl:

Posted on 04-28-2003 by Gouge_Away
they were wrong, it is thier most soft and melodic cd yet.

Posted on 04-28-2006 by akaukal
i gave it a 10

Posted on 05-01-2006 by thyfunkispure
10 for me too, but I love Blindside so it will always be a ten unless Blinside turns Polka or something

[QUOTE=thyfunkispure]10 for me too, but I love Blindside so it will always be a ten unless Blinside turns Polka or something[/QUOTE]
haha polka! actually same thoughts here; Blindside is my favourite band, so I'd never vote any of their albums less than 10.

Just because there your favorite band doesn't mean all of their CDs are perfect

[QUOTE=ice_wiz]Just because there your favorite band doesn't mean all of their CDs are perfect[/QUOTE]
Maybe in his mind they are.

Posted on 05-01-2006 by earlessdog
the album is good, not as good as abouta burning fire, or the great depression though.

Posted on 05-02-2006 by akaukal
yeah good point. About A Burning Fire and The Great Depression are just unbeatable.

Posted on 05-02-2006 by akaukal
[QUOTE=ice_wiz]Just because there your favorite band doesn't mean all of their CDs are perfect[/QUOTE]I never said they were all perfect. I just meant I love Blindside enough to never stop liking their albums. Only, like thyfunkispure said, if they go Polka or something.

Posted on 05-02-2006 by earlessdog
i love so many bands, but i think it is safe to say that i think blindside is [I]the[/I] greatest band that ever lived. Next to that i can't decide, there are to many, but blindside just takes the cake.

Posted on 05-03-2006 by ice_wiz
Okay, I gotcha.

Posted on 05-23-2006 by Disciple Freak
I love this CD! The best songs are Caught a Glimpse, Pitiful, Sleep Walking and The Endings! 10!!!!!!!

my favorite Blindside album. awesome CD. The First three songs kick but

[QUOTE=Keimo]Although I truly am not a friend of Blindside's older stuff, I really did enjoy Silence (no pun intended ;)). Compared to their previous albums, Silence is totally different: it's calm, melodic and satisfyingly enjoyable. Harmonic vocals and powerful guitar riffs give a good punch to this one. Awesome![/QUOTE]
It's much better to hear a vocalist use his voice in a range of ways instead of seeing how loud he can scream. I [I]hated[/I] their first two albums.

Silence is awesome. can't wait to get the Great Depression.

Posted on 06-30-2005 by Inked in Blood
i thought this was a good cd.

Posted on 07-02-2003 by Asax217
A great cd. The best blindside cd by far. Great songs and a great video for Pitiful.

Posted on 07-04-2003 by Gott ist kühl
awesome cd!!! 10 all the way! blindside freakin rocks!!!!

i agree with everything u said except that....only because its not a love song. unless we're speaking of love songs to God...
but anyway, i agree with the rest of what u said, thats its a great CD :D

although i must say, a thought crushed my mind and there self titled i think are still better :yep: ...they got a little soft on this album.
but o well, it's still one of my fave's overall, awesome CD, awesome band, awesome lyrics, and awesome vocals :)

Posted on 08-01-2004 by Mathaytace ><>
Although I said earlier how it wasn't as hard as "A thought Crushed my Mind" it is a Far Better Album!

This is actually my fave Blindside Album.

Posted on 08-11-2003 by AllTheWayLive86
good cd. These guys are talented. a solid album, good vocals, good guitar. The drumming was very good, as well. A well blended cd. Can't wait til their next in December. 9

Posted on 08-13-2003 by JMessenjah17
Dude, I LOVE Blindside! The music, the high use of emotion, the lyrics, EVERYTHING. I give this cd 3 THUMBS UP, even though I only have 2, lol! Best songs are: Caught A Glimpse, Pitiful, The Endings, Time Will Change Your Heart, Painting, and Midnight. I hope their new album will be just as good! PEACE!!!

Posted on 08-26-2003 by candycorn
I love this cd, I first heard blindside before I was into christian music when they were on mmusa, before it was the fuse, but yea I absolutely love them and I gave them a 10

yeah i listened to blindside before i really listened to any Christian music, they made me realize there's good stuff out there..although they still stand as the best. (Christian or secular) :)

Posted on 09-05-2005 by Andrew
This is one of the very few CDs I have heard that I give a ten. I don't even like hard music, and hate almost any music with screaming. But this CD really strikes a chord with me. I love it. It is absolutely perfect.

10.

Posted on 09-10-2005 by HolyRockJfreak
Pitiful and Sleepwalking are sweet!

Posted on 09-11-2005 by DKelly
Yes, "Pitiful" is an awesome song. I am wanting to get this CD.

Posted on 10-10-2004 by blindsided888
Great cd! Best one i have. I gave it a ten becuase of there passion and emotion that was put into the cd. My favs were 1,2,3,and 6. Best one i've ever heard.

Posted on 10-12-2003 by Mathaytace ><>
A thought Crushed my Mind is WAYYY harder.

Posted on 10-17-2003 by sorefingers
Very good cd. I gave a 9. My favorites are Pitiful, Sleepwalking, Cute Boring Love, Time Will Change Your Heart, and Coming Back to Life. All the other songs are good, too. The cd flows very well from one song to another, with good guitar parts and vocals. I have to say I really like their style.

Posted on 10-17-2004 by Unregisted
this is one of the most emotional c.d.s of all time you not only hear the song you feel it it is the best. i give it a 10 out of even though there is no compitition

10!!! Truely a great cd!

Posted on 12-01-2003 by Choppa™
ABSOLUTELY FEROCIOUS. This album brings new meaning to the term "Hit the ground running." I love it.

Posted on 12-02-2003 by Dwight Schrute
Have you checked out their new album, About a Burning Fire yet? They have a track from it on their website [url="http://www.blindside-silence.com"]www.blindside-silence.com[/url] it is slated to be released early 2004. Billy Corigan (from Smashing Pumpkins fame) is on the track Hooray, It's L.A., it should be interesting. The style of their latest single off the new album is a bit... agressive... so I'm looking forward to checking out the full album in 2004. They also have some video of their Cornerstone performance on the site. Cool stuff.

Posted on 12-03-2002 by Gouge_Away
yes it is a very good cd, as a stand alone record. I gave it an 8 simply because i know what they are capeable of and they just didn't get up to their full potential on this cd. still quite good
