Must be just me who doesn't think Elsie is all that great. I like pretty much every Gaslight release more than it, Senor & The Queen included.
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.

Definitely not the first I've seen a TGA fan not be that big on Elsie.

Elise is one of my favorite records in years.

I get why some TGA fans would want something else ... Handwritten delivers in that regard IMO.

Who knows, maybe Elise will be one of those records that clicks with me two or three years from now and I wind up wondering why the hell I didn't like it more when it first came out. Wouldn't be the first time. Or the 20th for that matter.

I think Elsie is a close second to the 59 Sound. I liked American Slang a lot, but I never thought it touched me as much as the 59 Sound.

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.

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

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.

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
