Completely overlooked as THE power pop gem

"I mean, what else is there? Presume that Weezer and Green Day have been commissioned to make a record, but somebody offs the lead singers, and thus the only thing left to do is fill their shoes with... the Beach Boys.
I have yet to hear anything top this in the category I can only nail down as "crunched out smooth guitars with thick harmonies on top"."
Silver Sun catches a bit of power pop rays

"The Cheap Trick comparisons seem to follow Silver Sun around, and generally that's not too far off, a marriage of chirpy 60's harmonies and crunchy guitars *cough* Matthew Sweet, New Pornographers. The catchiness of this album is infectious, fusing melodic vocals and buzzed-up riffs. Just think the bouncy power-pop of a Teenage Fanclub and Sugar (or perhaps even Suede's debut) meeting the silky melodies of Jellyfish or Sloan. Silver Sun's self-titled tends to be namedropped as an overlooked power-pop gem, unless you discover it for yourself of course.
