  • After the more grown-up effort that was their third album, American Slang, the Gaslight Anthem look to get back to their punk roots with their latest offering, Handwritten. Based on the rootsy drive of their first single, "45," the Gaslight Anthem seem to have rediscovered a way to blend the heartland rock earnestness of their last album with the energy of their other work, scaling back the Springsteen worship a little (though thankfully not too much) in order to create a sound that is all their own.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "HANDWRITTEN is Gaslight's biggest-sounding, most straightforward album....[Fallon's] a ferocious vocalist, and his way with a hook and Springsteen-schoooled sense of drama makes these songs more cathartic than cornball."

Entertainment Weekly (p.65) - "[HANDWRITTEN] wears its hardcore-punk-meets-rust-belt-rock sincerity like a bandanna tucked into its back pocket....Old-school, DIY...[and[ heartfelt..." -- Grade: B+

Kerrang (Magazine) - "HANDWRITTEN is The Gaslight Anthem's finest and most authoritative album....With this they now sound like men whose potential and promise stretches many years into the future."

Q (Magazine) (p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "HANDWRITTEN is pure New Jersey rock, dripping urban romanticism, albeit with extra oomph on the power chords."
