I guess it does. A lot of people seem to love that song. I mean, I love their other slow tempo songs, like "Navesink Banks," "Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts." "Red at Night" as well, but only slightly less so. But there's just something about "We Did It When We Were Young" that just doesn't click with me. Possibly the deliver of it, because I really like the lyrics. I don't know man. Always bothered me that I couldn't get into it.

This bit has me excited. For me, "45" seems like they took everything great about all of their releases and melded them into one glorious, anthemic single. It's poppy without losing its edge, it's powerful without seeming forced. There's passion. And from what you're saying, that carries on into every other song you've heard.

How many songs are on the sampler?

I think it's five

We Did It When We Young is definitely up their with my favorites. Beautiful track. I've been listening to them so much recently, and it seems The '59 Sound is my least favorite by them. I love their early sound, so Sink or Swim kills it for me, and American Slang seems to be a much more defined record. It's still solid though.

The '59 Sound used to be my favorite, as it was the first record I heard by them, but over the years it has became my least favorite, even though it is still an amazing record. Sink or Swim and Senor and the Queen have an energy that can't be topped and American Slang is just huge. Im sure Handwritten is going to absolutely blow my expectations out of the water though.

If the songs on Handwritten are anywhere near as good as "45", it's going to be amazing. They've created pretty much the definitive Gaslight track with that song. The riffs, the lyrics, that fast punk rock tempo - perfect. It's going to be one of those records you play in years to come and still know that shit's about to go down as soon as that song starts.

The 59' Sound is still top for me. Probably something like The 59' Sound > Sink or Swim > American Slang. At times I want to say The 59' Sound and Sink or Swim are equal, but that's only because "I Coulda Been a Contender," "We Came to Dance," and "Wooderson" are on it.

I can't choose between them, haha.

"Angry Johnny..." is my favorite Gaslight song so that really helps SoS, but I honestly don't think I could give them any sort of accurate rating. Changes day-to-day, mood-to-mood, etc.

2. Sink Or Swim
3. American Slang
4. Senor and The Queen.

All are fantastic releases and it's hard to put them in order honestly. I also think I might be a little biased since 59 sound was the first Gaslight album I listened to. Only Gaslight songs I've really don't enjoy that much are the original version of Boxer and Red In the Morning. The Itunes session version of Boxer is way better in my opinion.

What's your reasoning for putting their EP as their best? I mean, not to really call you out or anything but I've always found it odd when people claim an EP has the band's best work. I believe that's happened a new times in relation to Gaslight.
