I listened to a few songs from this album this morning while getting ready for work. I still really love 'The Backseat', great album closer.

yeah, i'll get right on perusing those 40-some-odd spanish channels right after i finish up with the 25 different home shopping channels.



you people need to get in on the awesomeness that is "boomboxes and dictionaries" from the previous album, sink or swim. hell, check out the other songs on it, too. good stuff, indeed.

IWB, are you acquainted with The Night Marchers? They opened for Modest Mouse the other night. The first half of their set was fantastic, the last half was not. If you know them, what are your thoughts?

nice. none of the food places around here play anything semi-decent.


i have never heard of them. i hate when bands play half an awesome set and then suck. but i think i hate it more when a band plays half a sucky set and then the rest is awesome, because then i buy a cd which inevitably has all the sucky songs and none of the awesome ones.

I just listened for the first time this week.

The '59 Sound is fantastic.

Gaslight Anthem have been my favorite "new" band for about 2 years now. Their stuff is incredible.

The 59 Sound is probably their best complete work, but Sink or Swim is still a damn good album. A little harder edged than The '59 Sound.

But if you want my opinion? The 4 songs on the "Senor and the Queen EP" are their best. "Say I Won't (Recognize)" and "Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts" are my favorite Gaslight Anthem songs. Just beautiful.

i can't really get into any of the songs off senor and the queen for some reason. kind of like how i can't get into even cowgirls get the blues. everything on that album is stellar, just i skip that song.

i don't know if i'd say sink or swim is necessarily a little harder edged, it's a little rougher. it's the same general sound, just before the ted hutt/side one dummy brigade came in and cleaned some of it up a bit.

Well I'm late to the party as usual, but better late than never.

"Miles Davis and the Cool" is incredible.

59 Sound is a lot of fun, traditional American rock, I haven't heard their debut yet though.

I just got this cd about a month ago, I lik'em! Sounds like Bruce Springsteen meets Kings of Leon.
