iTunes Review

For its sixth studio album, the Ontario post-hardcore band Silverstein cuts to the quick, literally. With "SOS" clocking in as the album's longest track at one minute and 36 seconds and "See Ya Bill" and Good Clean Fun's "You Gotta Stay Positive" not even making it to the 10-second mark, Silverstein slams through 22 songs in just less than 20 minutes. The first 12 cuts are originals, with the remaining dozen being covers of tunes by Dead Kennedys ("Short Songs"), Descendents ("Coffee Mug"), NOFX ("It's My Job To Keep Punk Rock Elite"), Green Day ("The Ballad of Wilhelm Fink"), and The Promise Ring ("Scenes from Parisian Life") among the notable. The performances are sharp and often harsh; the Promise Ring cover is the most pleasing on the ears and relatively leisurely at one minute and 21 seconds. The brevity doesn't mean the band ignores harmonies or hooks; Chixdiggit's "Quit Your Job" is quite sweet. The Green Day cover even throws in acoustic guitar.

Customer Reviews

It has been 12 Years and 6 albums...

There's only a few bands that make it this long in their career with succesful albums. Silverstein is one of those few bands that remain. They have done so much and their work is greatly appreciated. But it seems to be they're only getting started.

Short Songs not only proves how talented Silverstein actually is but it shows how much they've grow up since day one. It is an amazing album to listen to. I just cannot get enough.

Silverstein is awesome and always will be!


Formed: 2000 in Burlington, Ontario, Canada

Originally formed in 2000 as a side project, Silverstein were launched by vocalist Shane Told, guitarist Josh Bradford, drummer Paul Koehler, guitarist Richard McWalter, and bassist Bill Hamilton in Ontario, Canada. After diving into Ontario's hardcore/emo scene -- which also included bands like Moneen and Grade -- Silverstein found an audience for their particular brand of shimmering emo and hot-blooded post-hardcore. Silverstein's self-released EP, Summer's Stellar Gaze, was quite well received...
