#99/100 – Glassjaw – Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence

There was a time for a little while in the late 2000s where you could go into a mall and buy records that were very limited pressing and find some nuggets of gold for those artists and labels who were seeing the niche. This is one of those, among with a handful of others, that I picked up in a Hot Topic. I was well familiar with the album so it was an easy buy.

Side A is interesting because it starts out hyper aggressive and brutal, calms down a little, and by the third track it’s almost apologetic for the first two. When One Eight Becomes Two Zeroes is easily my favorite on this side, and maybe the album overall. It’s been years since I’ve heard it and I’d forgotten how much a relief in spirit and attitude that it was, especially contrasted against the violence of Pretty Lush.
