We Can Take the Pain
Landofthesilverjets is the creation of one man. This collection of tracks is known as We Can Take The Pain. It actually has material off five different albums. All of these songs were written and performed by Salvatore Russo between 2001 and 2007. The self-titled debut Landofthesilverjets (volume one)has a very soothing feel , the songs are comforting to listen to and easy on the ear. The first six tracks are off of that album. I Crash Cars (volume two)covers tracks seven through eleven. There are a lot of loud drum and vocal tracks that may inspire you to break things, but that\'s when you know you\'re doing something right. This album is a lot angrier and the first and if you listen to the vocals, it almost has a nice anarchist theme. \'Considering that I\'ve been distributing these albums for free up until now, it all made sense.\' Silvernoise (volume three)is a very melodic album, there\'s a lot more electric guitar than there was on the prior albums and there are some really poignant love songs clearly inspired by the mighty Guided By Voices. This covers tracks twelve through sixteen. Tracks seventeen through twenty-two are off the last official album known as All The Dead Brunettes (volume four) which is the loudest, craziest album to date. There is so much raw emotion and power behind some of these tracks that it would blow your mind. The first and last track on that album are nine minutes long.There were a few guest musicians on this album, the melodies are beautiful and when it get really loud it\'s a beautiful thing. The last handful of songs are a collection of demos and unreleased material. The closing track with the organ known as The Sentiment was the appropriate way to end this twenty-six song compilation. The fierce sound of the guitar and organ together was a real achievement.
