The Gaslight Anthem

Mixed Reviews

BBC
Despite coming in shy of 35 minutes and retaining the services of ’59 Sound producer Ted Hutt, American Slang is an altogether cleaner-sounding affair than its predecessor. As such it’s not so much a bad record as a weirdly redundant one: four talented, passionate musicians do a perfectly reasonable job of making a record that sounds a good deal like vintage Springsteen, but fail to really leave their own mark on the music.

Summary: Why doesn't every rock band make music like this?

Field Music (Measure)

BBC
At 20 tracks, it is literally an epic double. It sprawls, yet always surprises. It’s their take on the rock canon, drawing in the likes of Led Zeppelin, Kate Bush, Roxy Music, XTC and Talk Talk. It shows new wave chops on Each Time Is a New Time, Share the Words and the mid-afternoon FM of Them That Do Nothing; clunking funk on the lopsided Let’s Write A Book; the Zep' creeps in on the colossal striding rock god melodies ahoy on All You’d Ever Need To Say; and there’s post-rock balladry sparseness on the gorgeous You and I.
