"Silence to the Naysayers" (Ragin Grace; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

"Silence to the Naysayers," the second full-length album by Eight Days Gone, is too slow, too emotional and too cerebral. Throughout the entire CD there isn't nearly enough edge or originality for my taste.

I guess if you don't mind spongerock, then Eight Days Gone might whet your whistle. Like too many other CDs, "Silence to the Naysayers" has no personality of its own and, hence, is adequate but ultimately dull listening.

A subtitle on the CD cover proclaims, "Silence to the Naysayers" to be "A Stereophonic Sound Experience." Unfortunately, this CD is about as creative as that superfluous declaration.

Eight Days Gone: Neill Steinke (vocals, guitar); John Zadeh (drums); Gary Bonneau (bass); Steve Miceli (lead guitar).

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
