This is by far one of you best reviews. Incredibly well written. This album is unbelievably good. I foresee it as a top 10 album at the end of the year.

Fucking great review, God dammit I want to hear this record right now!

And I actually went to high school in "Paupack, PA" There's a lot of cliffs in the area, pretty much could be anywhere. Still pretty awesome.

One of the few albums that actually does sound like the Gaslight Anthem and the Lawrence Arms

Go on...

Probably my favorite review of yours, and the album is phenomenal. 'Gates' is my personal favorite, but I get drawn farther into the album with each listen. So good.

Great review Thomas. Casey is my favorite jam from this fantastic piece of work as well. This album is everything I wanted it to be and more. They completely destroyed all expectations I had for the band. I absolutely love the slow, chill Gaslight vibes that this record gives. Hopefully this band gets some much deserved attention 2012.
