This is beautiful.
Walks a thin line between kicking you in the teeth and wrenching your guts.
Everything sounds very tight on the instrumental side, which is huge for me.
Since I've listened to Brian Fallon's voice for the first time he pretty much set the bar when it comes to
how I want somebody to sound.
I don't know how to put it differently, but I just enjoy listening to the tone of his voice.
I get what some of you say about this break in the song after the initial onslaught is over, but it works perfectly fine for me!
One thing I noticed though is that it became harder to follow his lyrics in the last verse.
The verses before and the chorus are clear, but it changes in the last verse.

I loved Handwritten, and I think it gets talked down by some people (naturally) because they felt it was a sellout (ugh...that word).
I get how they felt it was softer maybe....but it was a very good album to me, a very cohesive one.
This feels different to me, but it's still clearly a TGA song.
Now I'm just excited to find out how it will be changed by the songs around it!

Wonderfully written. And I also like Handwritten Smile (as much as the other albums)

I love the sound during "I don't want to be devoted" and after "firework".
The chimes during the wind chime line were a nice touch.
Even though the last verse can be hard to follow lyrically, I love the melody and the way his voice flows.

This is not my favorite.

I remember hearing the NPR stream of Handwritten and being enthralled, barely able to contain myself....

Now I'm just sad. But its not that I wasn't expecting this type of sound, because Brian gave everybody a PSA of sorts, its just not something I care for. Hopefully I'll like a couple of the songs. Expectations are extremely low. Ah well. Still will buy a copy since I've been listening to them for close to 7 years.

So, are we hearing a radio play hit single here, or just something for the fans for now, with the wider audience single still to follow? How are your non-TGA friends reacting to this?

They're playing it on Radio1 later today, so they're premiering it essentially the same way they did 45 (except with it being available to download about 14 hours earlier). It's definitely the radio single.

The couple of casual fan friends who I've gotten to listen to it have liked it, FWIW.

great track! Really excited for the album. I do have one small niggle though( I am English so moaning is standard) the way Gaslight go through the final third of this song is kinda samey, like the whole beginning feels fresh then in the final moments you could mixed 4-5 other gaslight songs at the end and it would sound the same. It could almost be Bring It On by the end. Does anyone else at least partially agree?

i feel like the song is over musically by 1:50. not too interested in the last minute. musically. lyrics are cool.

Actually 100% disagree. I don't think it gets going until that extended coda. Hopefully the rest of it grows on me. Couldn't make out a damn thing other than "rollin' and tumblin'"

Second shot at lyrics -

I don't think I'm going out anymore
You better find some other body to comfort
When I was tremblin', baby, you was a diamond
But you ain't a diamond no more

So whatchu wanna say is my head is a hurricane
Well, it never let me sleep all night - uh huh, all right
You say I'm hopelessly devoted to misery
Well, I don't wanna be so devoted no more, ah yeah

And all my friends wanna get into Heaven
And all I keep thinking is I wish you were here
I heard that they been callin' me The Great Depression
Rollin' and tumblin', breaking my own heart again

Shimmy shimmy shake, baby, right in my bloodstream
I don't know what it was that got in my room
But my ticker tape heart broke and everything shook in here
But I heard it could be worse

So whatchu wanna say is my head is a weathervane
It's spinnin' with the windchime (right)
Baby, I was born on the 4th of July, exploding like a firework
Ahhhh yeah

And all my friends wanna get into Heaven
And all I keep thinking is I wish you were here
I heard that they been callin' me The Great Depression
Rollin' and tumblin'

(Rollin' and tumblin')

And all my friends wanna get into Heaven
And all I keep thinking is I wish you were here
I heard that they been callin' me The Great Depression
Rollin' and tumblin'

So should I take everything?
All your temporary medicines
Should I take your reds, your blues, and your cocaine?
Should I take something you tried on the weekend?

Should I take everything
Or did you mean everything?
When I hit the wall, wrecked from it all
We put flowers down on the cold ground

And cry me a river
And assure me I'm crazy
Why you question the answers
And then you lean on my best friends

Until you find better weather
And you take a vacation
I hope you got all my letters
I signed, "The Great Depression"

Baby, rollin' and tumblin'


First time through I didn't really like it, too different, almost?  And now I'm just replaying it over and over and digging the Hell out of it, haha.

Curious more so about overall sound in general. Is there any piano on the album? If so, is it ever a featured sound on any track? Or more complementary?

to JacksSmirkingRevenge:

Nice work with figuring ut the lyrics! Most accurate one I've seen yet, and I'm also having trouble making
out exactly what he is singing before the "it could be worse" line.
Really dig this, but I'm trying hard to tame my excitement and let it hit me when it comes along as a full album.
Sounds a whole lot edgier (if thats a word) than the more recent stuff!

There is some, but not really a featured sound on any of them. This record has a lot more going on musically than any other gaslight record. If I had to describe it overall I would say it has the intensity of sink or swim but more mature and refined.

Very cool - thanks. I've always been a fan of piano sound in a rock song (think Backstreets; or more recently the sound of Something Corporate and Augustana). Glad they decided to dabble with some piano.

What about Brian's vocals? Are more of the tracks similar to Rollin' & Tumblin' OR more grungy like the teaser (reportedly Stay Vicious)?

I'd say more like rollin' & tumblin'. If anyone has doubts about the teaser song, don't. The chorus is classic gaslight and makes the main riff and verses all the better

OK - final question from me...for now, at least.

In your opinion, can this album or any song from the album break through on mainstream US radio?

Thanks again for all the insight. Appreciate it!

Can't answer that because I'm not sure what makes a band break through anymore. I thought bring it on would be a huge hit, and then thought 45 and here comes my man would be massive. But I hope so. There are a bunch of songs on this record that I think could be massive hits

Yeah, that's true. Personally thought "Handwritten" and "45" were gonna break 'em huge, from the first time I heard them.

Nothing has ever sounded more like TGA than this song actually. Dunno if that is supposed to be the "confortable and reassuring song" but it sounds awesome.
