Rescue was so underwhelming to me, I thought the band was surely in decline. Man, I was wrong.

1. A Shipwreck In The Sand
2. This Is How The Wind Shifts
3. Arrivals & Departures
4. When Broken Is Easily Fixed
5. Discovering The Waterfront

I've been listening to Silverstein for awhile, and have been lucky enough to see the band on a handful of occasions. Personally, I'd rank the albums as such:

1) Arrivals & Departures
2) Discovering The Waterfront
3) A Shipwreck In The Sand
4) This Is How The Wind Shifts
5) Rescue
Sweet. Someone else who loves Arrivals & Departures.

Discovering the Waterfront is by far their best imo, don't get the love for Shipwreck at all, that album is bland as fuck.

I just can't believe Rescue isn't on here. That record is so mature and well produced. I think it's #1 for me, honestly.

1 - Short Songs
2 - Rescue
3 - When Broken
4 - A Shipwreck
5 - Discovering

Can't put the new one anywhere yet, it's too young, but it will probably end up in the top 3. Great band, great discography, and, as pointed out, quite under-rated. Their Victory-stint didn't do much for outside impressions.

Killer live band.

When broken is easily fixed will always be my favorite.
Agreed. Sad to see it didn't make the list, although I understand that, objectively, it's far from their best.

Been a fan of these guys since I was 12 years old, them and Underoath pretty much single handedly got me into the music I listen to today. I wasn't too big on Rescue but the new album is truly killer. I'd have to go like this..

1. Discovering the Waterfront
2. Arrivals and Departures
3. A Shipwreck in the Sand
4. When Broken Is Easily Fixed

I'm undecided where I'll place This Is How The Wind Shifts.. I'm thinking it'll eventually take 3rd, not sure if I can place it above A&D though.

I've only been a casual fan of this band over the years, but the new record is seriously good... and the more I think about their past releases, the more I realize how good this band truly is. Very underrated band

Personally i'd say Shipwreck>Discovering>Wind>Arrivals >Rescue>Broken>Short Songs.
I know Short Songs has been greatly appreciated around here, but I could never get into it, except for some songs. I also love concept albums, so Shipwreck, which got me into Silverstein, and Wind, which could end up getting over Discovering with time, are at the top of the list.

For Me:

1. DTW
2. ASITS
3. Short Songs
3 and 1/2 (I need more listens). TIHTWS
4. Rescue
5. WBIEF
6. AAD.

Discovering the Waterfront is just so fucking dynamic. Just look at the time signature changes they throw around in Your Sword Versus My Dagger and Always and Never. Besides the 3/4 time signatures they use occasionally they haven't done anything as complex in that regard as the songs on DTW (except maybe the End). The bridge on Three Hours Back, the riff to Smile in Your Sleep, the breakdown to The Ides of March, the brutality of Defend You just cannot be rivaled. They pulled out all the stops.

That being said, ASITS is a CLOSE second. Shane's vocals improved even more from the DTW days, and the concept of the album is a great aspect. The End is one fucking hell of a closer, featuring just about everything Silverstein can possibly do in one song, topped off with Lights accompaniment. I Am the Arsonist is maybe their best heavy song, Born Dead is a stellar more punk track, Vices has even more brutality and songs like I Knew I Couldn't Trust You and You're All I have are the hidden gems that old the album together.

I just can barely listen to it anymore because of the vocals.
