It Has All Been Done Before…

Take from the old, mix with the new, and make it your own. If not your own, make it catchy, something no one should have shame singing along to:  full of shout-along choruses, upbeat rhythms, fun guitar play, and Springstein. Out of ignorance, that last element turned me off; but not because I don’t enjoy Bruce – simply, I’m not familiar with his music. Jersey’s The Gaslight Anthem, far from a new act, were too simple at first and were not adding anything to the sound others before them created. Their album sat though; it never met its demise by being digitally trashed. After sporadic spins care of shuffle, their objective became clear to me: crafting energetic rock songs with life-like stories to tell.

Let me go ahead and re-write my best of ’08….

The Gaslight Anthem :: The ’59 Sound

The Gaslight Anthem :: The Patient Ferris Wheel
