(the) Gaslight Anthem

So I finally stopped being lazy and picked up the Gaslight Anthem's album last night.


It's not terrible by any means. Some of the lyrics are kind of dumb and it's pretty obvious that the songwriters in this band really, really love Bruce Springsteen. In fact, there's one song that totally steals the tune from "Dancer in the Dark." But then again, compared to what passes off as "punk" these days, it's pretty dang good.

Anyway, I'm still listening to it right now to see if there's anything else amazing about this band, but so far...nothing. Maybe this record will be a slow burn and I'll find myself revisiting it in three months.
