England - Full Moon 71 - 07/24/02
Speed of life, part 2
Silverman are duo consisting of Martin Willimans and Anna Dennis. Their debut is a stunning
album. It opens with what sounds like an instant classic. "Ctrl Alt Del" is a duet between
Williams and Dennis. It's every bit as sad as it's beatiful, a perfect song of lost love.
Elsewhere Anna Dennis handles the vocals alone. The music is nver uptempo, but has enough allure
for this not to matter.
"Can I Have my Heart Back Please?" is an obvious highlight. Dennis' voice is at its most
expressive while the eclectronic background cracks and hisses with tension. "Nothing I do,
Nothing I say" is resigned but not defeated. It ends the album on a grand note.
Silverman have crafted an impeccable album of gorgeously dark songs.
