The Great Silverchair Epiphany

A couple of friends of mine unwittingly reminded me of my love for Silverchair yesterday and I promptly searched for all of their songs that I could listen to online. :D

I don't get why some people are giving them such a hard time over their new sound (Young Modern). I think it's natural for musicians to progress into different genres of music. I still think they're geniuses.

And here's the epiphany.

Keeping in line with the whole "I can't accept the new you" thing, I'm sad to say that that's always the case with people. People change while growing up. It's naive to think that everybody going to stay exactly how they were when they were 5.

That said, I'll admit it isn't easy accepting changes. But who's to say that we ourselves haven't? Maybe the problem isn't that other people changed. It's the fact that they haven't changed and moved in the same direction we have. It's kind of selfish to expect everybody to, isn't it?

Then again, it all depends on the change. I think as long as we still recognize the other party's essence, it's all good. It may take time for us to find it in the ever so complicated personality of man (I use the term loosely here), but as long as you find it, things'll be easier to swallow. To refuse to even try is just mean.

Let me end with this:

I LOVE YOU DANIEL JOHNS!!!

I love Silverchair! I guess their new sound a bit more commercial sounding no? That's why maybe some of their fans aren't too happy with the shift.

I still think 'Cemetery' is their best song ever! Hehehe So the perfect for when I so the emo! :P
