For starters, only 11 songs. When I made a playlist of their b-sides last year, I think it had about 20 on there.
There are several awesome b-sides that are absent from this, and I honestly have no clue why that is.
Of the songs contained here, about half are just acoustic, recorded live on random radio shows.
I could be wrong, but this just seems like SideOneDummy wanted some cash, and the band may have had to oblige under contract.
(Add this to a two-year streak of disappointing / very bad releases from a label that used to be great)
I'm a huge fan of The Gaslight Anthem, but this is a rare "album" where I would actually advise people to "save your money".
What holds this back is that it's limited only to b-sides. A compilation of rarities and previously unreleased material would have rounded this disc out more fully, including tracks like "Blue Dahlia", "Teenage Rebellion", "Halloween", and "Hold You Up". I realize you can find most of these songs on iTunes or YouTube but having them in one place would have been a nice touch.
The Gaslight Anthem is still a young band and perhaps releasing a record like this is a bit premature, yet I'm happy to have it and it's a nice way to tide us over until the new record drops later this year. I'm sure the vaults are filled with unheard demos and songs that fans like myself will gladly snap up if they're released on a future LP. In the meantime this is a good step in the right direction.
