Album: SILENCE IS EASY – the band’s second LP
Released: 15 September 2003 – 15 years ago
BBC MUSIC review: “In early 2000 Starsailor were the most hyped band in the UK.
They got top billing as the new Travis Coldplay. The soulful indie sounds of their debut
‘Love Is Here’, released the following year, won them critical acclaim and commercial
success. ‘Silence Is Easy’ is captivating. The group’s new found confidence and experimental
edge are evident throughout the album… If there is any expectation left to be met, it will be to wonder how Starsailor will manage to produce a third album to surpass this fantastic mix of tunes.” – Full review here.
TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Big ardour. Big sentiments. Big sound. Big pop.
Big record with the best ever Starsailor in ‘Silence Is Easy‘.
