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.
