Silverstein - Short Songs Cover

The last remaining emos pay tributes to their punk roots...

With five full-length albums under their belt, Silverstein have taken it upon themselves to throw a bit of a curve ball and piece together a 22-track release of err… short songs; some original, some covers and all under the 90-second mark. And you know what? It’s actually quite good. The original tracks here show a much more brutal side to the band than they’ve ever let on (see ‘Sick As Your Secrets’ and ‘Truth & Temptation’) and while the covers may make some punk purists vomit uncontrollably (Gorilla Biscuits, Descendents and Gob all receive nods), it’s a reasonably solid homage to their influences.
