I usually love Ron Nevison, but I agree that Silent Scream isn't a gleaming example of prime production. I think that's the only album of theirs that he did. III Wishes was Kevin Elson, another talented guy. It seems like it's more of a Shooting Star thing in this case. I quite like them and they're definitely underrated, but maybe it's how they liked to record/be recorded or the fact that they weren't considered a top priority band. Also, how the recordings were preserved and transferred to CD is probably a factor here. Compare Survivor with Nevison on Vital Signs in 1984 to Shooting Star with Nevison on Silent Scream in 1985 to Survivor with Nevison on When Seconds Count in 1986. Silent Scream is definitely the odd man out. A lot muddier and missing those punchy drums. I was just listening to "When You're Young" on Silent Scream and thinking how "wrong" those beginning drum fills sound. They should have sounded something like the bridge in Backstreet Love Affair on When Seconds Count.
