Gaslight Anthem – Handwritten 4/10
It doesn’t take long to realize Gaslight Anthem got the mix on Handwritten horribly wrong. Or that you can pick at random any pair of lines by Brian Fallon the songwriter and be mesmerized, “every word handwritten”.
Many critics dismiss Fallon as Springsteen lite, which is a little bit laziness and quite a bit stupid. No one else is wrting songs even remotely like these.
I can’t recommend buying this album. But I’d not recommend being without all the Gaslight albums either.
