|i m a very big fan of gotthard ,so i have the habit to buy their cd s closed eyes ,always in japan import.receive yesterday silver from cd japan.silver is the more bad album of all their discography.stay with me is a super song ,a hit.this song desserve to be played ten time by day at radio.tequila symphony is a very great song inspired by mr bethoven himself.the rest ?it s always the same ,the intro is excellent,very catchy,very exciting but after one minute you have a little doubt,after two minutes you say 'what s this shit'?and when arrive the guitar solo it s a nightmare.hey leo ,wake up,stop drinking jack daniels.i can add that one more time the production is not very good.the guitars are a little drown with the others instruments.the three bonus tracks starts well but like for the others songs ,the songs are slaughterred by an horrible guitar solo.this record is the first very deception of 2017.nevertheless if they come back in lyon i ll run to their concert.

|Okay album. Does have some good rockers like Silver River, Tequila Symphony No. 5 and the bonus tracks. But too many generic and dull ballads drag the album down a bit. I think the biggest difference between the Steve Lee-era and Nic Maeder-era lies in the ballads. Gotthard have done some strong ballads in the past, but they haven't quite been able to do that with Nic Maeder, apart from the epic Thank You on the Bang-album. A shame they didn't skip two of them on this album and had the bonus tracks as ordinary tracks.

|the biggest difference between the steve lee era and the nic maeder era is the production and the quality of the songs not only the ballads.nic maeder have not the class and the charism of steve lee ok, but he is an excellent singer and a very nice guy who speak perfectly french.the day they will be find inspiration and the day they will take a real professional producter they will realise a top class record.like in the glory days.

|Gotthard has IMO, struggled to stay musically relevant since the passing of Steve Lee. With that said, their 3rd release with new vocalist Nic Maeder, offers us the same 'ol same old style of mediocre music. Every now and then there is a track or two on these last three releases that stand out - whether it is a ballad or hard hitting rocker (e.g. Tequila Symphony No. 5) - but they are just not enough to save the entire album from a boring and dry listen. I have struggled with Goatherds last three releases with Nic Maeder, and have given it a fair and honest chance. But these album, while providing a couple of standout tracks, are swallowed up underneath the dismal lackluster tracks on the remaining of the albums. I am really not sure if Gotthard will survive much longer before either changing vocalists, or calling it a day. HIGHLIGHT TRACKS: #3,6,9,14. MY RATING: 65/100

|the problem is not the changing of vocalist ,the problem is when you loose your inspiration and when you re not able in 2017 to make a better production than in your debut album in 1992.........................................

|Gotthard? There's no such thing anymore. If ''bang!'' and ''Firebirth'' had their few good moments, this is by all means totally unbearable modern crap! Time proved clearly the continuation of the band after Steve's tragic loss was not the wisest thing on their part. Not only Lee was a one-of-a-kind singer but his songwriting is also irreplaceable and missed from the band's recent works. If only they had chosen another singer (Tommy Heart maybe?) or at least had continued under a different name/ moniker...However, history does not form on an ''if'' basis and facts are those that matter. Again, this is not Gotthard. This is just SAD. A band who abase Gotthard heritage, that is.

|I think "Silver" is an album you have to give a few spins to really appreciate. I wasn't that excited the first couple times I listened to it, and I can see the other comments about "too many mid tempo songs/ballads". But once I gave the CD a little time, I think I actually like it more than the last 2. IMO there are some standout tracks (Silver River, Stay With Me, Beautiful, Miss Me, Tequila #5) and I actually think Silver comes closer to capturing the "spirit" of "classic Gotthard" than the last 2 albums. Overall I think it's the most consistent of the "new" Gotthard albums. Only complaint is that I do think the guitars are mixed a little to low, they could stand out more to give the sound a little more edge. And as far as Nic Maeder, yes nobody is going to "replace" Steve Lee, but Nic was absolutely the right choice as the new vocalist.
