THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM
Comparisons to Bruce Springsteen are inevitable but as compliment not criticism. Gaslight Anthem creates warm, feel good rock ‘n roll that smacks of the good cliches of the USA. It’s music to listen to whilst driving your car across country or whilst roasting meat on a fire that’s accompanied by beer and the laughter of friends. It’s also the band embracing adulthood, reflecting on the past and accepting where they are. It’s there third album and i’m entirely excited by my ignorance of this wonderful band as i now get to look through their catalog. Favourite tracks – damn difficult as they’re so consistent but i’ll painfully push out ‘The Queen of Lower Chelsea’ and ‘The Diamond Church Street Choir’.
