Silversun Pickups are at their best when letting their riffs do the talking for them—and when they do that talking loud. Singer/guitarist Brian Aubert's nasal, teeth-clenched vocals—along with the band's surging guitar work—have earned them some Smashing Pumpkins comparisons, but Aubert's dramatic turns don't quite have the nagging personality of Billy Corgan's whine. On opener "Skin Graph," his thin, reedy singing is all but drowned out by the guitar's persistent jet take-off roar—and it's one of the album's strongest moments. Ditto the jagged pre-chorus riff of "Mean Spirits." Elsewhere, the band hits happier mediums, as on "Simmer" or "Busy Bees," which begins with a skipping, slipping drum machine beat—typical of this album's electronic flourishes—and builds, snare drums snapping, to a singularly convincing climax.
