This has to be one of the most anticipated records of the year (for me anyway). Radioactivity’s self-titled debut left little doubt in the mad genius of Jeff Burke, and almost from the moment I heard that record, I was clamoring for more. Silent Kill delivers the goods and then some. The songwriting is on some kind of magical level that few can hope to attain. I have often (usually drunkenly) purported that Jeff Burke and Mark Ryan are America’s Lennon and McCartney and I will (mostly soberly) maintain that in writing right now. There is just something there that can be found nowhere else. The hair on the back of my neck stands up from start to finish of this album. Did my eyes water up a couple of times during the first listen? Maybe… I guess what I am getting at is this is an easy contender for album of the year. If you don’t have it, please get it. If I had the money, I would buy a copy for everyone I know.
