Comparing Brian Fallon to Springsteen is like comparing Chris Brown or Usher to Michael Jackson.

I'm sure it's a great album and believe the review, but I'm with the other guy, every article or review written about Fallon or Gaslight always brings up Springsteen, it's unnecessary. It's not Nebraska or Darkness on the Edge of Town and he's not Springsteen.
I don't remember saying that he was Springsteen or that this record was any of those records. Maybe that he "borrowed" from that sound....but then again, I guess I forgot that comparisons aren't allowed to be made in reviews.

From The Review You Didn't Read All The Way Through And although I already basically held this opinion, what Elsie proves is that it’s time to place faith in Brian Fallon. He’s proven himself multiple times over now as a premier songwriter, a passionate vocalist and a poetic lyricist. Beyond all that, though, is the sentiment that Fallon is a reason to be excited about rock and roll music. The humble New Brunswick native is playing the same music he grew up listening to, but he’s leaving very much his own unique branding on it. The comparisons to rock and roll apostles before him may never end, but the future is just as bright as the past is legendary.
Brian Fallon is the future – and very much the present – of rock and roll.

We should put a moratorium on people who don't get to the end of a review. Or maybe make users take a test on reading comprehension before letting them comment.

This x1000

The score system is crap. If you want to actually know if you'll like an album, read the damn review. You can't understand the nuances of a record from some arbitrary number.

Well when you see The Cab getting a score of 95 don't be shocked when people start questioning your scoring system. That being said, this is a great review and Brian Fallon is a great artist so hopefully this is more than deserved.

Edit. I'm fully aware the reviews were by different authors. And I don't mean to go off topic, excited to hear this record.

I honestly wasn't a fan of your reviews at first Nassif. But your last few have been great and this one is your runaway best. I genuinely enjoyed reading it.
Also looking forward to anything Brian Fallon touches

I think I'm the only member - especially staffer - on AP that isn't a fan of TGA. I guess I'll still check this out though.

Great review Nassiff

Though I love Gaslight Anthem. People need to ease off a little. Brian is a good writer and talent musician. But all these Springsteen comparisons and saying he's the future of rock n roll, Come on guys. Unless they change their style of music completely, their never going to be huge mainstream success. Their style of music isn't what mainstream audiences like. It's the Black Keys syndrome, one of the greatest bands out there today, but not enough people like their sound. And before you say anything about Bruce he's been doing it for 40 years back when people listen to rock and roll.

Damn, and here I thought I couldn't be any more excited about this record. Really well-written review Thomas.

And let's just abolish scores completely. It'll force people to stop bitching about ratings and actually do some reading.

Damn I love people on this website. Haha.

But I think at least half to three-fourths of my favorite albums this year have been one's that Thomas has reviewed, so I'm expecting this to be at least top five. Been excited for this all summer.
