I always felt AS got somewhat discredited for not being quite as awesome as 59.

It isn't that bad. I Witnessed a Crime is pretty cool. But yeah, it didn't really strike me as an album I'll be listening to much a few years down the road.
Well it's not that I think it's a bad album. I just don't enjoy it as much as anything Gaslight has put out. Some tracks are great though. But overall it doesn't do a whole lot for me. Meh it's just me though.

And yeah AS is honestly still my favorite TGA album. 59 is a close second.

Yup, we're on the same page here. Behold the Hurricane and I Witnessed a Crime would make a badass single/b-side combo.

Those two (59 and American Slang) are still a legitimate toss-up for me.

Am I allowed to say "I like these two things equally" or "I'm not sure which of these albums I prefer" on the internet? It seems like it's frowned upon.

Of course not, but yeah every thing Fallon has touched has been amazing, and it is really difficult to choose.

The 59 sound is my least favorite album that Brian Fallon put out.

I'd say '59 Sound works better as an album, but the really good songs from American Slang are better than the really good songs from '59. If that makes any sense.

I think the song that really got to me was Blood Loss. I was listening to it in the dark in my room just thinking about how it reminded me of my first girlfriend. After that, easily the album of the year for me. Still makes me tear up

Elsie is great, was easily my favorite record last year but I don't compare it to TGA records, totally different.

I will say the Horrible Crowes show I went to was the best show I have ever been to. Incredible stuff.

Not listening to those clips, I don't wish leaking upon this record but if it does hopefully its before my 5 hour flight next Thursday

Finally pre-ordered the deluxe edition. It's really hard not to listen to the 30-second samples, but I want to go in fresh.

It's weird how the US and UK super deluxe bundles are so different... wonder why that is. Picked up the US one earlier.

Did both. Listen to so little new music these days that I have the extra bucks to spend on a band I really love.

Wish they would have done a better bundle/preorder though, a little too disorganized/weird.

Thomas wrote it already. Monday I think.


I will give everyone on absolutepunk a 100 dollars if Thomas doesn't bring up Springsteen in his review. (or the notes)
