This is a great album, perhaps their best yet. I was exposed to Gaslight Anthem not too terribly long ago, and thought that The 59 Sound was their best work, this perhaps passes that.
True, it's a new sound for them, but still familiar. Right off the bat they come at you with thick guitar riffs reminiscent of Pearl Jam, or Stone Temple Pilots.
The whole album is tight, with good musicality, and the album is well mixed without being overdone. For gaslight fans, this will of course be a must have. It will also be a slight departure from their previous sound, opening them up to a new audience. I like it a lot.
