EDITORS’ NOTES

Silverchair used their last few albums to oscillate boldly around new sounds. Now that they're on indefinite hiatus, frontman Daniel Johns' debut solo album completes the departure from their wildly successful post-Nirvana grunge blueprint. Talk unveils a swaggering R&B crooner reboot, complete with crisp falsetto, staccato beats, and pristine production from Joel Little (responsible for Lorde’s Pure Heroine). “Cool on Fire” and “By Your Side” showcase the transformation perfectly—they're slithery, bleepy master classes in robo-soul.
