Cash Grab By Side One Dummy Records...

... call this one what it is—Side One Dummy Records trying to get theirs while they can. I would assume the guys in The Gaslight Anthem even had much, if anything, to do with this release.

TGA moved over to Capitol Records for "Handwritten" — a well-produced effort by Brendan O'Brien (STP, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, RATM, Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, etc.) and whether fans like the direction of the band, the production an sound quality is second to none compared to the Side One Dummy released (especially "American Slang", which isn't a well-produced record).

If you're a fan, this effort is worth it for quality rips of "She Loves You", "Once Upon A Time" and a few decent acoustic renditions of songs, though "American Slang" and "Boxer" are low-quality versions and come off like serious filler.

Would've much-preferred this to have come out post-"American Slang" and pre-"Handwritten" as it'd have felt more authentic. An early 2014 release, coupled with the recent, forced live DVD—it's not allowing a solid band to shine in its best light.

Looking forward to the next LP and curious to see what new stuff is in store.

SideOne’s Attempt at $

Im a huge Gaslight fan but this compilation is just all over the place. Its obvious SideOne is just trying to get whatever $ they can get out of the boys. Cant wait for their new album.

Not for me

I am a huge GA fan and it kills me to say anything negative about this band, but there is nothing new or exciting with any of these songs. I feel some of the acoustic versions actually devalue their plugged in versions. I understand most songs are born acoustically, evolving into the electric version, but perhaps they should have left these originals in the studio. The sparks just aren’t there for me as it sounds like a battle between Brian’s voice and the music. All of these songs can be found on other albums and comps as well. I would have gladly paid twice as much for some new material from these Jersey boys. Of course if you’ve never heard these songs, pick it up, support the band, and give it a listen and decide for yourself.

Biography

Formed: 2005 in New Brunswick, NJ

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Gaslight Anthem rose out of the fertile punk scene of New Brunswick, New Jersey, flaunting a unique style that melded the influence of Bruce Springsteen, Wilson Pickett, and various Motown groups with the rough, emotional grit of Hot Water Music and Jawbreaker. The band — comprised of vocalist/guitarist Brian Fallon, bassist Alex Levine, drummer Benny Horowitz, and guitarist Alex Rosamilia — began establishing a hometown audience after forming in 2005, and their soulful punk rock...
