Designed to capture a positive new energy and explore a broad spectrum of emotion, 2002’s Diorama was an album that featured some of the most ambitious songs of the band’s career. Although it went triple platinum in Australia and won five ARIA awards, the album was never as successful as it should have been. The band was unable to tour the album due to Daniel developing reactive arthritis, stagnating their momentum overseas. Despite that, it remains a milestone in not just Silverchair’s career but in Australian music overall, a true masterwork.
