The Gaslight Anthem's "American Slang" (2010)

(June 15, 2010)


If you ever wondered what Bruce Springsteen would have sounded like had he been born into the alternative/punk rock legacy, well… the time has come; American Slang suffers a bit from homogeneity of sound, but each of the ten tracks here unfolds as a vivid landscape that transports the listener to a new and yet not entirely unfamiliar locale.

“Orphans” & “The Diamond Church Street Choir”
