Gaslight Anthem, fronted by
Brian Fallon, played
populist bombastic punk-folk, frequently reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen,
on Sink or Swim (2007) and especially
The '59 Sound (2008), with Here's Looking at You Kid.
A much less punkish fervor permeates
American Slang (2010), the best songs harking back to the
power-pop of latter-day Replacements
(Stay Lucky, Orphans, and The Spirit of Jazz) and occasionally
revealing a classy storyteller
(The Diamond Church Street Choir).
The problem with
Handwritten (2012) is not so much that they had become a
stereotype, but that only a handful of songs deserved to be released
(45, Howl, Here Comes My Man).
They sound like echoes of anthems, but they don't have the fire of real anthems.
