"It was 1994 when Jason Martin and Starflyer 59 burst onto the alternative music scene with their self-titled debut commonly referred to as "Silver" because of its stark silver cover. In the years following its release, "Silver" has become an underground classic and a favorite amongst fans of mood-driven alternative rock. Unfortunately, in recent years, the "Silver" album went out-of-print and was increasingly hard-to-find - that is, until now!!!
June of 2005 has seen a newly remastered and reissued edition of the "Silver" album. In addition to the proper album, the "Silver" deluxe edition also reissues the ultra-rare "She's The Queen" EP in its entirety as a bonus. The only downside to the deluxe edition is that the original artwork is not reproduced nor are there any additional liner notes. The stark-plain silver cover is also replaced by 'royal' looking artwork that looks almost like a parody of Queen's "A Night At The Opera".
All artwork gripes aside, it is truly the music that matters here and it's great to see Starflyer's classic "Silver" album available once again. For those who missed it the first time around, now's your chance. Additionally, there is the rare bonus EP tacked onto the end so, you get two rarities for the price of one on a single disc.
