Silhouette is for the most part very relaxing but it's also still danceable and if you're listening while chilling out on the couch, faster tunes like "Cyber Bully Boys" and "Reggae Music" will likely have you leaping to your feet to reggae dance around the room. "Fijian Sunset" has a bounce and lilt that recalls Bob Marley's "Stir it Up" while "Who Will Remember Them" is classic slow and smoky reggae; the guys even breathe new life into Bob Dylan's "I Want You" by adding echoing vocals to the chorus and spotlighting the horns.
Campbell's voice is understandably a little huskier than when he sang UB40 hits like "Red Red Wine" but he remains one of the best reggae/pop singers and interpreters and fans of his past work should find Silhouette equally satisfying.
