The Silver Gymnasium ends with two of the best Okkervil River songs ever. All The Time Every Day" is a freewheeling, arguably boozy pub rock song, with doo-wop inspired piano underscoring it; more importantly, Sheff's lyrics are like a warm blanket, extending comfort to anyone who thinks, quite commonly, that they're all alone in whatever they're going through. When I hear this album I can totally understand Sheff's choice to make this secret visit home, where he sits on the edge of town, lounging on a car that so isn't a cutlass cruiser, wondering why his town is so ingrained in who he is. When it comes down to it, The Silver Gymnasium is about not quite knowing how you felt. It's the past as a blur, with the glorious moments – and the painful ones – extenuated. And that is so Hardin.

The Silver Gymnasium. Released September 3, 2013. The Silver Gymnasium Tracklist. 1. It Was My Season Lyrics. The Silver Gymnasium is a loose concept album centered around singer Will Sheff’s hometown, Meriden, New Hampshire. Here’s how Sheff described it in an interview: I feel like most of what I wanted to say about my childhood is there in the album. Furthermore, I’m not sure I made this record because I wanted to say anything about my childhood so much as I made it because I wanted to talk about nostalgia and about childhood in general, and it felt more productive to use my own childhood as the model. The Silver Gymnasium Q&A.

Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff has never shied away from dipping his pen into the seemingly bottomless inkwell of nostalgia that seems to permeate much of 21st century indie pop and rock, but on The Silver Gymnasium, the Lone Star State band’s seventh long-player, Sheff goes all in with a of his hometown of Meridian, New Hampshire, crafting. an 11- track, exhaustively detailed audio-biography that comes off like a more idiosyncratic, less overbearing version of Arcade Fire's The Suburbs

Sheff sets Okkervil River's seventh album, The Silver Gymnasium, square in the heart of his own childhood; in the specific spot that produced his most sepia-toned memories.

I’m not sure if I’d call it a completely happy album, as there’s still darkness creeping around the edges, and also because it defies simplification. And yet maybe that’s the point. They wanted to create something that had warmth.

If "The Stage Names" is OR's unquestioned masterpiece, then "The Silver Gymnasium" is a close second. Focused both thematically and sonically, this is one of Okkervil River's most consistent offerings to date. "White" is a should-have-been hit; "It Was My Season" "Down Down the Deep River," and "Where the Spirit Left Us" round off the list of must listens. One of the strengths of this album is that there are a lot of upbeat rousing numbers. The songs as a whole may be tinged with nostalgia and longing, but there's an energy that runs throughout. Even "Lido Pier Suicide Car," the one slow number that drags a little, ends with a climactic finale.
