Redux: Silverstein's "When Broken is Easily Fixed"

Just because a band is proficient at playing their instruments doesn't necessarily mean that their talent will translate well to wax. Case in point: Canada's Silverstein, whose 2003 album "When Broken is Easily Fixed" (Victory) is a shining example of how the screamo subgenre has ruined a band's potential.

The album's ballads, "Giving Up," "November," and "Forever and a Day," are really strong songs, but sadly, there's only eight listenable songs on the 12 track album. Anyway, I put this record on yesterday and after I removed four crappy songs, I found the rest of the album to be a little enjoyable.
