From Brad1770
Reading good reviews for this album I was looking forward to checking it out and after 2 full listens I gotta say I ultimately came away disappointed .

After the excellent opener 'Great Expectations' the album meanders along with rollicking track after rollicking track none of which hit any real heights until track 9 'Even Cowgirls Get The Blues' offers a much needed change of pace and is easily the best thing on the album . Another change of pace in track 11'Heres Looking At You Kid' is also good .

At the end of the day I've saved the excellent 'Even Cowgirls Get The Blues ' onto a playlist how ever apart from that I wont be back.

From MrBrown
This is The Gaslight Athem's best album. It gives nodes to Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, both in the music and in the lyrics.

I love this album. Interesting influences from The Pretenders (mid 80s), early U2 and of course Bruce Springsteen.

Favorite tracks: The '59 Sound, High Lonesome, Miles Davis & The Cool, The Patient Ferris Wheel
Less favorite tracks: Casanova, Baby!, Even Cowgirls Get The Blues

Definitely the best Gaslight album, their songwriting is much better here than on the rest. The Patient Ferris Wheel is one of my all time favorite songs.

This is a great album, with a wonderful flow. From the opening Great Expectations to the final The Backseat, it propels along with heart and soul.
