You will find many obvious highlights to the album, but each song has its own greatness within it. Give this album a few. Silent Steeples was released in 1996. It was originally released by Dispatch when the name of the band was "One Fell Swoop.

Wicked acoustic guitars, playful bongos, and resplendent harmonies proliferate Silent Steeples. The consistency of the album is its greatest attribute, which also makes it difficult to pick one song over another as a standout track. Hey Hey" exemplifies the band's ability to harmonize for emotional emphasis. Flying Horses" serves as a vehicle for intricate time changes and a catchy chorus. Elias" opens with Zimbabwean lyrics and then goes on to showcase Chad Urmston's mastery on the bongos. Dispatch has developed a loyal underground following through.

If anyone has this pressing and is looking to part with it, I would love to buy it from you!

I'm in the process of collecting all of the Dispatch LPs on vinyl, and this is the best-sounding of the two that I have so far! In my review of Bang Bang, I mentioned how some of the louder or more crowded sections of that LP have a fuzzy distortion going on; not so with Silent Steeples! This one sounds crisp throughout, no problems that I can remember.If I had to rank them, this would probably be my least favorite Dispatch album (full disclosure: I haven't really given their newest album a fair shake, so I didn't count it). However, that doesn't mean it's bad. My favorite Dispatch songs are the ones that have a rockier "edge" ("Mission," "Lightning," "Time Served," etc.), and I don't think they'd really mastered it on this record yet. But it's definitely worth a listen!
