I fuckin' love strams. "Misery" is amazing.

Zack Zarrillo 10/31/12 01:43 PM

I think Misery is the best song the band has ever written

Listening to the Skinny Love track now... the echo vocal track really seems to hurt it. It makes it sound too much like the original and while it works great for Bon Iver and worked great on We Did It When We Were Young... I think here it just stops the cover from having a life of its own in anyway. The main vocals are spot on though... so more "so close to being something truly great but annoyances get in the way" from Gaslight =(

is the tracking on hold you up messed up? Or is it supposed to randomly jump between ears like that. Cause it seems really random and out of place so I'm hoping its just caused by a bad uipload...

Holy hell this is great. Misery is fantastic.

Skinny Love cover should never have been released. Painful.

None of these do much for me but I still plan on looking for this on Record Store Day Black Friday.

not sure if its me or what the issue is but while the song is great, listening to this song with headphones, but the vocals are to panning from left ear to right ear and popping in on the right ear on some notes. either its on my end or a mixing fail.

the sound is definitely off in the upload of this song, it can't be me.

Just listened to the album on my laptop, with headphones, definitely a problem with the upload I'm assuming, cause I don't hear anything with the vocals panning in my headphones. Or any popping.

Also think it's a great song, but I don't think it's the best song the band has ever written.

you're just wrong. your opinion on music is invalid. mine is valid.

Good songs. Love the Gaslight Anthem. That "Skinny Love" cover is awful though. Just really, really bad.

popdisaster00 10/31/12 02:25 PM

I don't think the Skinny Love cover is that bad. There's something so untouchable about that Bon Iver album that no cover will come close, but this is a solid attempt and most Gaslight fans should be happy to have it.

This.

No where near "bad" ... it's a cover, takes a new spin on it ... it does what it set out to do.
