4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Covers Record for a Change. January 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
It wasn't that long ago that the prospect of an album offering an eclectic selection of cover versions would have sounded quite enticing to me if the participants in the project were known to me. However there has been such a deluge of such things in recent years (Joy Division in bossa nova style anyone? Anybody in hillbilly, bluegrass, reggae etc) that I now find I approach such concepts with caution. However, when I heard that Alela Diane was the singer on this album I couldn't resist as I'm a keen admirer of her "Pirate's Gospel" record.

Alela Diane(last name Menig), is usually described as a folk musician(although she has, prior to this, only recorded her own songs) and is supported by instrumentalists Josh Klinghoffer, Woody Jackson, Joey Waronker, Leo Abrahams and Gus Seyffert who have, apparently, worked with everyone from Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Beck to Smashing Pumpkins and REM. Headless Heroes, is the name she, dance auteur David Holmes, New York A&R; "guru" Eddie Bezalel (who worked on Mark Ronson's Versions) and Primal Scream producer Hugo Nicholson have chosen for the venture.

The Silence of Love doesn't sound particularly folky to me and(thank goodness)doesn't try force any particular style on the songs chosen. The song selection is certainly interesting and I found it a plus point that I knew only one of the songs here(`Just Like Honey')as it makes it feel more like a 'proper' album.
The album kicks off strongly, if quirkily, with Daniel Johnston's `True Love Will Find You in the End' but doesn't truly hit it's stride until the arrival of Jackson C.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get it out of my head. September 21, 2010
By DW
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I bought this CD last year but still can't get it out of my head. Every once in a while I happen upon the original version of a song from this CD. I keep thinking how hip is it to do covers of obscure, forgotten artists like Philamore Lincoln and Daniel Johnston. Maybe in my lifetime I'll eventually hear the original versions of all of these songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous... March 14, 2010
By Nik
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful album through and through from the cover illustrations to Alela Diane's gorgeous vocals. The songs (all covers) are soft, rolling, powerful, and, above all, thoroughly enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Headless Heroes - The Silence of Love November 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt The Silence of Love is one of the most eclectic selection of cover songs I've ever heard. Headless Heros shivers into the album with "True Love Will Find You In The End," a hypnotic cover of the Daniel Johnston song ... a number that's been timelessly covered by Spectrum, and alternative countrified by Wilco. From there they roll, or perhaps slither, through a host of obscure lost indy gems that will at times have you believing you're hearing the songs for the very first time. Alela Diane's presentation sounds as if she's accidentally found herself in some gothic cathedral where she's singing to a church of the bizarre, raising her vocals to the rafters, shimmering the candles and content within her loneliness. She's not afraid to render renditions of Jesus & Mary Chain's "Just Like Honey," Jackson Frank's "Blues Run The Game," or even Nick Cave's "Nobody's Baby Now." It will set you back a bit when you suddenly realize how she's taken on so many richly layered and musically dense songs, and stripped them to bare bones visions of moonlight dreams.
