Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.83) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The choruses are more sculpted, but the band's tough-as-leather rush is as hard as ever..."

Spin - "[T]he disc represents a serious upgrade in attack -- it's wilder, more innocent and altogether shufflier than its predecessors."

Entertainment Weekly (p.97) - "With shouted-till-we're hoarse vocals, taut guitars, and a grizzled demeanor...they've got Garden State attitude down." -- Grade: B+

Alternative Press (p.121) - "Alex Rosamilia's guitar leads are far more soulful and well thought-out than in the past....These are expertly written songs..."

Billboard (p.36) - "The plucky guitar parts on 'The Queen of Lower Chelsea' drip with influence from Modest Mouse and the Cure, and the closing 'We Did It When We Were Young' is smoky and soulful."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Gaslight forge their own identity: a mix of tattooed-knuckle lyrical pathos and insistent melodic hooks."

Paste (magazine) - "'Stay Lucky' and 'Bring It On' are cut straight from the band's oil-stained cloth, but they nail the occasional detours as well, especially the left-field finger-snapper 'The Diamond Street Church Choir.'"

Pitchfork (Website) - "[W]ith briskly paced rockers like 'Stay Lucky', 'Orphans', and 'The Spirit of Jazz' nudging the band's blue-collar punk towards Replacements-vintage power pop."

Clash (magazine) - "[T]en slices of trembling, impassioned rock'n'roll....A sublime third effort busting with broken-hearted, wide-eyed wonder."

Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "AMERICAN SLANG delivers spectacularly on all expected fronts....There have been great leaps forward in production and the musical arrangements, which have greater depth, atmosphere and texture."
