Keepsake is my jam.

He can make "lay" rhyme with "it"? Can't get over that part.

Would've loved to hear more of The '59 Sound on this album. Not that it wasn't great, but from how they described it I expected a little less American Slang sound and a little more '59 Sound.

When he sings "Sniffing out blood, just a little taste of "Where I came from",....................




is he referring to a vagina?

Yeah, I think so.

handwritten is such a beautiful song
Yup. The bridge is just perfect. I think it will go down as one of the 'classic' Gaslight songs like The '59 Sound or Great Expectations. It gives me that same feeling.

45 withstood the stream for me, still my favorite on the album. National Anthem being a close second. This album, unlike their others will have to take some time to grow. First of their albums where I didn't love every song immediately.

I know I'll get flamed for this but I really don't like the overall production on the album. But that's due to the fact that I've never been a big fan of Brendan O'Brien. Apart from three of the four Springsteen albums he's done, there's only one other album he's ever produced that I liked the result of and that was Mastodon's Crack The Skye.

Otherwise his penchant for making everything sound huge as possible often ends up being overkill. See: Working on a Dream.

I mean the album is good, no question. It just sounds too slick for my liking in some parts.
