Eight Days Gone - Silence to the Naysayers 
By Zane Ewton

Silence to the Naysayers is the second full length release from the Pennsylvanian band Eight Days Gone.  It can easily be described as 13 tracks of emotional guitar-driven rock.  

“We’re just really nice guys who have different influences and a different musical maturity than the teenage angst-ridden rock being shoved down the public’s throat,” said lead vocalist, Neill Steinke.  Just like the slew of other “modern rock” bands you will find scattered upon VH-1’s Top Twenty Countdown, Silence is finely crafted but relies heavily on formulas.

The songs are built around Steinke’s vocals, which are straightforward and emotive.  He is the kind of singer to claim to have “a different musical maturity”, which means he can also border on boring.  

The rest of the band, John Zadeh (drums), Gary Bonneau (bass) and Steve Miceli (lead guitar), are competent players but often fade into the background as Steinke’s vocals take center stage.

The lyrics are melodramatic and forgettable.  Steinke’s folk sensibilities don’t translate as well as his influences, Cat Stevens and Van Morrison.  The albums ballads would fit comfortably into any Junior High dance play list.  

None of the tracks stand out amongst the others, as each song could have a chance on modern rock radio right now.  This is a very safe and competent album.  Your mom would love these really nice guys.  If you like something with a harder edge, it would be best to steer clear from Silence for the Naysayers.

Eight Days Gone remind me of Collective Soul, particularly in Steinke’s vocals, as a band that could get a lot of airplay but nobody will remember their name.
