Tout est dit ds ce 1er album des Silecieux (silencers): guitare claire ds pratiquement ts les morceaux, 3 tubes monstruex que st painted moon, i see red et surtout l'incroyable " letter from st paul" avec une voix féminine qui vous donne la chair de poule et un harmonica qui vient se méler à un riff de basse absolument somptuex.Un morceau digne des plus grands tubes me rappelle que c'est ce morceau qui m'a donné envie d'acheter le vynil à cette époque;
franchement au risque de m'aliéner une partie des fans des Silencers leur meilleur album à ce jour;
Ils auraient du se séparer juste après car tous leurs autres albums sont vraiment un cran en dessous.
En tout cas pour le profane qui désire faire connaissance avec ce groupe préferez ce cd à touls autres et meme aux best of qui n'ajoutent rien d'autre à ce cd parfait de bout en bout.
La pochette est également géniale avec la photo du groupe en noir et blanc;
Lachez-vous: disque d'enfer

Un premier album très réussi. Tous les morceaux donnent envie de danser, de chanter. Les paroles sont soignées. La musique bien mixée. La guitare planante. Album culte!

HASH(0x95443d20) étoiles sur 5 An Impressive Debut 3 décembre 2004
Par S. E. Shepherd - Publié sur
Format: CD
The Silencers are a great, yet relatively unknown pop/rock band from Scotland. Their debut album, "A Letter From St. Paul" made a bit of a splash, with the minor hits "Painted Moon" and "I See Red," but for some reason they never caught on. Their sound is similar to their Scottish peers of the time, such as the Simple Minds and Big Country, though they don't necessarily sound like either one. The Silencers have subdued yet driving sound that sticks with you once you've heard it.

Other standout songs are "God's Gift" and the title track, a trippy "instrumental" with an American girl (from St. Paul?) reading a "letter." The whole album is an excellent example of late 80's pop/rock. This is a really good overlooked gem. It's a shame the CD is out of print.

HASH(0x95443d74) étoiles sur 5 An overlooked 80's Classic 11 mai 2008
Par Toscano Barga - Publié sur
Format: CD
Buy this now ! Every song is great, a truly great 80's classic album, unfortunately they never really capitalized on their embry of success with Painted moon, not sure whose fault that is but it's unfortunate. Better late than never, buy it now !

HASH(0x954481c8) étoiles sur 5 sublime songs 28 juin 2012
Par Donald E. Gilliland - Publié sur
Format: CD
Ah, what a jewel this one was ... and still is. The Silencers were a very underrated 80s "alternative" band that used keyboards to create sublime tunes that I think would qualify as "dream pop" nowadays. Lead singer Jimme O'Neill was also with the late 70s band Fingerprintz (please, please, please, someone release those early albums on CD!), and then went on to form this fine band. Anyone who liked the Blue Nile albums, or perhaps some early Tears For Fears and Simple Minds (before they adopted their "stadium rock" style) will find this album, and other recordings by the Silencers, to be most impressive. Melodic songs that shimmer and shine.

HASH(0x95448594) étoiles sur 5 One of the greatest debuts I've ever heard--from anyone! 23 juillet 2015
Par Mogulmeister - Publié sur
Format: CD
This is one of the greatest debut CDs I've ever heard from anyone. I've been listening to this CD pretty regularly since it came out in 1987, and quite simply, it achieves greatness. And just as importantly, it holds up exceptionally well 28 years down the line.

"A Letter From St. Paul" is a very dark yet powerful first release from this great band. Opening with "Painted Moon," a song about the Falklands War which got fairly strong play on alternative radio at the time (and is the song that brought me to this band), the CD takes us on a tour of a very dark universe, with psycho ex-girlfriends, abortion, war, dysfunctional romance, addiction struggles, and household economic collapse. All light subjects, of course. The bright, rhythmic and often driving music is often in contrast to the dark lyrics, creating a powerful, dissociative effect. More than that, the music is tightly controlled in a distinct way, while the lyrics paint a picture of a world spiraling out of control. The contrast is pretty mesmerizing.

While this CD might have been the band's debut, it was obvious to me (long before I knew the history) that the creative minds behind it had to be far from newbies. And in fact, Jimme O'Neill and Cha Burns are seasoned pros. It shows. But what makes this CD stand out are the excellent songs, the vocals of Jimme O'Neill, and the often impressive lead and rhythm guitar work. However, the bassist Joe Donnelly is all but incompetent (he was gone by the third CD).

One of the things that has always amazed me about The Silencers is how much they love the key of B for their songs, whether b-major or b-minor. Six of the nine songs on "A Letter From St. Paul" are in the key of b (the only exceptions being "I Can't Cry", "Bullets and Blue Eyes" (the one weak track on the CD), and "Possessed" (which, as the best and last song of the CD, caps off this magnificent recording so brilliantly with such an over-the-top song). And yet even with so many songs being in the same key, it doesn't produce any sort of "sameness" or become musically boring.

The Silencers, from Scotland, may have never achieved the recognition they deserved, but they truly were a great band that produced a tremendous body of work (7 studio CDs, and one not very good live CD). Their very best CD is the one that followed this one, "A Blues For Buddha," which came out in 1989. "A Letter From St. Paul" is truly great, but "A Blues For Buddha" is a timeless masterpiece. Both made it onto my list of the "10 Best Rock CDs of the 1980s."

HASH(0x95448678) étoiles sur 5 5 for the shimmery sound 29 avril 2011
Par Jared Jennings - Publié sur
Format: CD
I would not compare them to simple minds, though a group that rightfully comes to mind as I hear them is lloyd cole and the commotions, the guitar sound of the smiths, though much more of a slick 80s sound than them, and that is not an insult. They should of been bigger with a sound like this, fits in with other well-knowns of the time. if you love jangle pop (the smiths, rem, let's active) and the 80s wouldn't hurt either (a love of), then you'll dig it, thanks pirate bay
