Anyway it had enough listens. I just don't like it. Can't really explain why, it just isn't Gaslight to me. I like the intro (for a song of any other band [not saying bands aren't allowed to develop]) but Brian also sings it too high for my likes and well it just doesn't do anything for me.

Now go hit me with the frying pan

Frying Pan Frying Pan Frying Pan Frying Pan Frying Pan

Yeah alright...but can I just say that your quote is one of my favorites!!!
I think "I can't move on and I can't stay the same" is worth getting tattooed somewhere.

So does distracting everybody with my love for 45 keep you from hitting me? rabbit

hahaha i guess i can let it slide..... cheers

I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit worried about this record shifting to a more generic, controlled sound, but I am trying not to really think about that until I've actually heard the record (no point in pre-judging).

I know this all too well as an obsessive Weezer fan that saw the band go from two of my all-time favorite albums to five straight mediocre to downright horrible releases. It's rare for any artist to be able to maintain a consistently high level over a career (though it certainly happens), and I would hope that even a band's most ardent fans still try to maintain at least some objectivity when listening. Don't force yourself to like something just because it is written or performed by a certain person; I used to have a bad habit of doing that with my favorite bands, and I found very quickly that it broke down over time as the newness wore off. For that reason I try to wait a little bit before expressing my thoughts on a new release (this started after I proclaimed Make Believe as on par with Pinkerton after first hearing it and I will never live that down), because sometimes some of my favorite songs are ones that I don't necessarily get on the first couple of listens. At the same time, I have heard songs that I instantly loved but sounded stale to me as soon as the newness wore off.

You make some good points there for sure and I can see where you are coming from. However, from what I have heard so far Gaslight really are developing their sound without abandoning where they came from. Brian just writes great music and I think his writing for The Horrible Crowes has definitely helped him develop as a songwriter. Now I'm the first to admit I am an obsessive fan of the band and who knows I might look back in a couple years and think Handwritten was only ok, but from what I've heard so far this is going to be the most exciting album ever and that's not just me being a fanboy. What's great about Gaslight is they are all sound, sensible and grounded people who make music for the love of their craft and I know for a fact Brian and the guys would not put something out they didn't think was worth listening to. They have been extremely consistent up until now and long may that continue Smile

At the same time, I have heard songs that I instantly loved but sounded stale to me as soon as the newness wore off.

So far for me the Gaslight Anthem is 4 for 4 (Sink or Swim, Senor and the Queen, 59 Sound, and American Slang). Everything they have put out I have loved. Granted some more than others (I thought American Slang could have been better) but something about their sound and Brian's vocals always makes their music stand above 98% of what else is out there.

I always try to be objective when it comes to anything. I didn't like the Horrible Crowes album that much (Although they had 2 maybe 3 songs I liked) which means I am not blind to just like everything TGA or Brain Fallon does.

Based off of what I am hearing from Handwritten it seems like its at least going to be on American Slang like terms with me (Good but not Great TGA) at the very worst. But I am hoping this album becomes a sort of break through for the band which I think it has potential to be.

I'm too tired to comment on anything but this lols so I'm sorry I'm off topic

I love old Weezer so much. I really wish they didn't go in the direction they did No
My dog is actually named Weezer! I was an obsessive fan at 8 years old back in 2002, and now when people hear his name I always have to explain that I named him that before Beverly Hills and all the other crap.
They're still one of my faves of all time though

Yeah I've got to agree that after more listens I'm still not into it. Lyrically it's fine but the music/production misses the mark for me a bit. Also I don't like that "one of these days" backing vocal part. It's distracting. Some of these things could change when I hear a better quality version, but those are my thoughts for now. Still holding out hope though, because Handwritten sounded pretty great on that preview video.

Interesting that you would bring up the back up vocals. I thought they were way more prominent than they have been in the past. I liked them but I felt like they were at the same volume as the lead which is just odd/distracting like you said.

I listened to it a lot when it was up but only once off a rip and oddly the rip made me like it better because I couldn't make out as much detail so it sounded more stripped down and a bit more Gaslight oddly enough. I can now see it as a Gaslight song.

Found an mp3 rip of the song.

This is positively amazing. Bruce Springsteen meets The Horrible Crowes meets The Beatles meets The Gaslight Anthem...Brian Fallon, just take all my money already. You can have it. I don't care. Just give me the album.

Couldn't agree more with you here. Ive felt free to be critical at times and anyone else who does its fair enough. What is annoying is when people say something along the lines of " I just want to say The Gaslight Anthem are my ultimate favourite band, they ve helped me through so much in life and for this I am eternally grateful, Brian is my hero and I am really excited about the new album so please dont be offended....." but.... and then they make their slightly negative comment. They jump through all these hoops before actually getting to the point they want to make. Just speak your minds people, we already know you're a big fan as you're a member of the forum with over three thousand posts! you're entitled to an opinion. We're all fans, feel free to be objective, it prompts good discussion... sorry... rant over.... I just felt that needed saying to back up Dale's point.

I'd say we've all heard 'Here Comes My Man' now since the Letterman Show. Does anyone else notice a similarity between it and 'Go Tell Eveybody'? I don't know what it is but I seem tofind myself singing the lyrics to GTE when listening to HCMM
