American Slang is the first The Gaslight Anthem album I've bought and listened to, so I can't tell you how it compares to their previous two, but I can say that it hooked me right from the get-go and that, upon having listened to the album in its entirety, I immediately went out and bought their other two albums. It is, as you might have surmised, a very good collection of songs.

Judging by this latest album, (which, I've been told, is less punk and more rock than their previous outings) The Gaslight Anthem are a great rock band who seem to have found the middle between Counting Crows' slightly rougher songs and some of Foo Fighters' softer song. "Bring It On", the third track, is a great rock song, whereas the song that follows it, "The Diamond Street Church Choir", leans closer to the aforementioned Counting Crows influence.

However, the quality is there pretty much across the board. The titular "American Slang" just sounds like a band having some great fun, with a catchy tune and lyrics that stuck in my mind. "Boxer" is my least liked out of all the tunes, and even that I most definitely considered worthy of listening to all the way through. "The Queen of Lower Chelsea" is simply fantastic, almost feeling like a song Arctic Monkeys might have written if all of their albums had sounded similar to (and maintained the quality of) All That You Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. It goes without saying that the Arctic Monkeys are awesome, and so is this song. This album receives a whole-hearted recommendation from me. Get it, it's worth it so much. 5/5
I absolutely loved their first two albums. This album is a little slower than the previous ones, a little less punk. However, it is still very good, and the lyrics still have the romance and nostalgia you expect from The Gaslight Anthem. After the newness of the album wore off, the tracks I listen to most are probably Bring It On, The Queen of Lower Chelsea, and Old Haunts. In the end, it's not my favorite album of theirs, but overall, it's definitely worth having.
