Sink or Swim, the New Jersey-based quartet's debut LP, is the type of record that most young bands wish they could create to launch their musical career. For a group of guys with such diverse backgrounds in styles like folk, blues, metal, hardcore and punk, the overall output is an album rich in melody, hooks and overall well-crafted song arrangements. In the album's opener, Boomboxes and Dictionaries; we get a very bouncy number to kick things off, slightly reminiscent of Against Me!, complete with the standard whoah-oh-oh; backing vocals. Fans of bands like Samiam and Lucero will appreciate tracks like I Coulda Been a Contender; with its slowed-down intro, blasting into the up-tempo choruses, all the while perfectly showcasing singer/guitarist Brian Falon's smokey vocal style. - PUNKNEWS ORG
Ok. This band is simply unbelievable and original in a genre that really no longer has any innovation. Think Bruce Springsteen meets punk but better. Every song is solid and I do mean every single song. Get this album now. Don't make a mistake and pass up great music.
I saw the Gaslight Anthem with Against Me! and Two Gallants in Houston in 2007, and these guys are great both live and on disc. The diversity of the sounds and the richness of the melodies work together in a way that is unrivaled in modern music, as far as I know.The '59 Sound is a good cd, but it's nothing compared to Sink or Swim. When I bought this at that show, I couldn't believe it was their first album. I'd name my favorite songs, but they're all so amazin..
