Billy Talent (2003). Billy Talent takes its curious handle from a character name in the 1996 mock rockumentary Hard Core Logo, which traced the continuing adventures of an aging Vancouver punk band. The reference is probably more resonant in the Talent's home base of Toronto; everywhere else, it's a little awkward. Fortunately, the quartet's eponymous Atlantic release struggles mightily to make music matter more than moniker or stylized genre revivalism. Over a muscular, relentless, and viciously catchy 40 minutes, the band checks the wiry, melodic punk of the Buzzcocks while working Fugazi's dueling vocalist dynamic and searingly precise guitar breaks into its own three-minute anthems. The Buzzcocks' influence is immediate and easy; indeed, Billy Talent conveniently opened a clutch of dates on the reunited veterans' 2003 tour. Likewise, Talent benefits from production that tweaks its hooks for maximum sonic pugilism. But while Benjamin Kowalewicz's yowl and screech do bear some resemblance to countryman and somewhat melodramatic Our Lady Peace mouth Raine Maida, his sloganeering lyrics are laced with cynicism, and right-hand man guitarist Ian D'Sa favors tense, angular guitar tones over the enormous compression of the mall-punk boy bands that proliferated at the turn of the century. "Try Honesty" and "This Is How It Goes" certainly have the shout-along choruses. But the latter's "Hold my breath until my heart explodes" is darker than any of Good Charlotte's toothless challenges to authority. There are no nods to hip-hop or power balladry here; "Living in the Shadows" and "Line & Sinker" are roiling, throttling post-hardcore screeds field-stripped to basics, but rebuilt with melody. "The Ex" might be the most straightforward two-and-a-half minutes of punk revivalism on Billy Talent. But even here, the band tears at conventional spurned boyfriend lyrics with vindictive gang vocal interplay, and rushes headlong into the explosive chorus with a nervous energy that's hard to fake. Certainly, Atlantic would like to see Billy Talent hit a chord with the kids - the record's melodic accessibility bears that out - but the group wisely favors agitation and tension over cherry-picking from current musical fashion.

Dead Silence (2012). Having rounded out its trilogy of self-titled albums with 2009's Billy III, Toronto's Billy Talent starts fresh with 2012's Dead Silence. Although the band had already explored a mix of pop-punk, emo-rock, post-hardcore, and classic rock on Billy III, Dead Silence seems to further balance these sounds with a deft exuberance. Overall, the sound on Dead Silence isn't that different from the band's previous work, but is certainly some of the best work they've done. This is at least in part due to the strong social and political messages woven throughout the album. While the band has always espoused a kind of anti-authoritarian stance, on Dead Silence there is a bit more of a pointed socio-political angle, and cuts like the strident lead-off single "Viking Death March," "Surprise Surprise," and "Crooked Minds" find the band tackling such themes as religious extremism, corporate corruption, pollution, and the crass commercialization of culture; whether it be clothes, music, or political views. On “Surprise Surprise,” lead singer Ben Kowalewicz sneers, ”Oh you upper class daughters, and working class sons/It's hard to save a dollar the way the world runs/We got a counterculture you can buy off a shelf/If you're losing your identity, trust somebody else.” In fact, Kowalewicz has never sounded more the snotty and literate punk rock diva as he does here, and the album finds him making the most of his wicked vocal snarl, and gigantic, David Bowie-meets-Billie Joe Armstrong yawp. On a similarly impressive note, guitarist Ian D'Sa further reveals himself to be an adept hard rock guitarist, as songs like "Running Across the Tracks" and "Love Was Still Around" split the difference between the hard rock of AC/DC's Angus Young and the angular, metal-influenced style of Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello. And it’s not just the more propulsive rock moments that grab you here. The melodic, ‘60s pop-sounding "Stand Up and Run” proves the band has as much of a knack for pop craftsmanship as punk irreverence. Ultimately, if Billy Talent was working through its influences on Billy I , II, and III, then with Dead Silence, the band has finally figured out its own perfect blend.
