Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
Published Nov 25, 201019. Gaslight Anthem American Slang (Side One Dummy)
It's been fun watching the Gaslight Anthem grow up. On American Slang, the New Jersey quartet know it's okay to sing nostalgically about a time they could only have experienced through photo albums and history books. Brian Fallon and the gang arrived at the place they always sought ― a no-man's land filled with romanticism, tattoos, Cadillacs, punk rock and a record collection stocked heavy with Springsteen and the Clash. American Slang is somehow your old man and your best friend all at once.
