Album Review

There's always been something a little nostalgic about the earnest, rust belt rock of the Gaslight Anthem, and it wouldn't be unfair to say that the band has been looking to the past with a laser focus on the rugged songwriting of New Jersey's favorite son, Bruce Springsteen. On Get Hurt, the fifth studio album from the Garden State rockers, the band expand their influences to create what might be their most unique album to date. Exploring the rock sounds of the '70s, the band show off their versatility as they take listeners on a guided tour of the LP bins of the day. Opening with a droning riff culled straight from the annals of classic stoner rock, the first track, "Stay Vicious," makes it clear that something very different is happening here. Given their past work, the last thing anyone would expect from the band is to open up their album with dirty, fuzz-covered guitars, but somehow they make it work. Further in, the searing leads and yearning vocals of "Helter Skeleton" feel like an homage to the starry-eyed power pop of Cheap Trick. No matter what sound they're using for a framework, though, the Gaslight Anthem always find themselves returning to these little moments of quiet honesty, stripping away the swagger to expose the emotional core at the center of their music. Delicate tracks like "Underneath the Ground" reveal that the real essence of the Gaslight Anthem's sound isn't sonic so much as it is emotional. Get Hurt shows that so long as they're passionate about their music, it doesn't matter where the band are getting their inspiration from, because genuinely caring about something is always compelling. [A Deluxe Version added three bonus tracks.]

Be Open to the Change

I've never been able to decide on these guys after one listen, but after listening to the live stream a few times, I know buying the entire album was a great decision. It is unlike any of their other work, which is a blessing and a curse. I have fallen in love with the albums The '59 Sound and Handwritten, which are completely different from each other, and Get Hurt is completely different from those. That is what makes this band great: they are not afraid to go in a different direction, and they do it well. I consider both The '59 Sound and Handwritten to be masterpieces, and now Get Hurt joins that group. Fallons lyrics are so deep and full of passion, which is what I believe draws me to this group (and the fact that they are real musicians, unlike the other garbage you hear on the radio). As much as I would have loved to hear another album similar '59 Sound or Handwritten, this new direction takes their music to a brand new level.


Brian Fallon is the best songwriter of the current generation of musicians. Can't get enough of these guys.

Solid Album

I got done listening to the album all the way through several times now, and I have to say it's a record that lives up to the expectations of The Gaslight Anthem. However, this isn't their best release, but still very good. There are some songs on here that sound similar to what was previously on Handwritten. The album starts out strong and ends on a soft note, in the middle is where it's just decent. My gripes for the record is that there's a lot of ballads on here and not enough fast-paced energetic songs on here to balance out the record. There is some heaviness on here, but they just shift into softer melodies later. I liked the heaviness on Stay Vicious and Rolling and Tumblilng, 1000 Years is another upbeat pop-rock song that I enjoy. Get Hurt, Selected Poems, and Mama's Boys are pretty good power ballads as well. As always the song-writing and lyrics are well written and blend in with the music just right (my favorite aspect of the band), but I was hoping the band would evolve more and go for something more dynamic within the instrumentals (so the songs wouldn't be typically 3 minutes long). These songs feel kind of short-lived; it seemed they were going in a more subtle, melodic direction, which is fine, if it were a little more progressive, it would have been a fantastic record. They sound more mature than ever on Get Hurt, and this album has potential for new fans to enjoy this sound too, which is great. I personally enjoy their fast punk sound, but this is a grower. This isn't my favorite release from these guys, but overall a solid release from a great band with plenty of passionate life stories worth telling in their music.


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 attracted...
