    Daniel Tashian appears to be one of those songwriters from whom melodies simply pour, and there's barely a misplaced chord in this perfect miniature.

    Pleasant and pleasingly melodic, but lacking the risky edge that makes a band truly great, The Silver Seas are like the living equivalent of a guilty pleasure.

    Their hometown makes itself known--lots of songs are accented with steel guitar--but the instrumentation stays delicate throughout.

    Pretty but lightweight. [Sep 2013, p.96]
  5. It’s what The Feeling might sound like if they were American; endlessly “nice”, but with nothing to stir the soul.
