AllMusic Review by Stephen Schnee

This Japanese-only ten-track album contains all the songs from their Sun EP, and the "Lava" and "Last Day" singles. Early on, it's obvious that Silver Sun had their sound mapped out: surround sweet, catchy melodies with a wall of guitars that are set to stun. Falling somewhere between Cheap Trick and the Buzzcocks (with a touch of Teenage Fanclub), Silver Sun's songs, penned by James Broad, are strikingly powerful little pop nuggets that are hard and tough on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside. There are eight songs on You Are Here that didn't end up on their album, so collectors should take note.
