New Music: The Gaslight Anthem – American Slang

27 Aug

I know the album came out at the beginning of summer but The Gaslight Anthem’s American Slang is one that any fan of rock and roll should have.  The Jersey rockers come out blazing on their third LP and definitely bring a more solid, crisp production throughout.  The title track gets the blood flowing followed by “Stay Lucky” and “Bring It On” which are two songs that grab a hold of you.  “The Diamond Church Street Choir” brings soul to the album while “The Spirit of Jazz” has anthem written all over it.  

Best known for their hit “The ‘59 Sound” the guys must have had added motivation in recording this record having already had the opportunity to perform with their idol Bruce Springsteen in the summer of 2009.  With The Boss in their corner, I only wonder what lies ahead for The Gaslight Anthem.
