Jesus Christ is Brian Fallon's fuel, as he says in his personal dedication to Get Hurt. And just like Mel Gibson does in his films, Fallon demonstrates the power of suffering for the Lord in his songs, even to the point of imagining himself underground (no kidding).

Gaslight Anthem's fifth album sounds a little different than the previous four, but only a little. Each song seems inspired by Bruce Springsteen's No Surrender - OK, but you know what I mean. I saw them this week at Ally Pally - an ear splitting gig with the damed gaslights blazing. Not only was I Blinded by the Gaslight, I was Deafened too. But they were as lively and generous as usual, hard working and affable, consulate professionals. They will NEVER be big time, as Fallon's writing just isn't commercial enough.

There are great songs - mostly about suffering - on Get Hurt. As well as the title track, there is Red Violins (blood again) the lovely Break Your Heart (a little Won't Back Down in the melody, but still a very good song), and another dozen of listenable, if not always fabulous numbers. I like Selected Poems as well, Stay Vicious and a few more a lot.

The band plays well, Fallon overtracks his own voice too much on this one, giving it a strange sound. This is a shame, as he is really developing into a great singer. It is unevenly produced, but still good enough to merit 4 stars. I am awaiting the next 59 Sound, which in retrospect really is their masterpiece so far.

I took off one star for the unevenness of the songs and production, and the endless scars, wounds, hurts, etc of the self-pitying lyrics. Maybe it is a 3 star effort - but I love the band, so here is 4.

After listening to the album twice today and reading a number of critic reviews, fan tweets and user reviews Get Hurt is getting a bit of a mixed reception - I don't know why, it's great!! Every critic review picks up on Brian Fallons comment that this is a very different album and then they seem to criticise the album for being exactly that. Is the album that different to their other work? Not really, it's more a change of pace.

I'm a big Gaslight Anthem fan and have been listening to their music for years and I must admit on first listen some songs on Get Hurt didn't hit home with me however on second listen I thought they were great. Tomorrow I'll love them even more. It's definitely a grower and that's to be expected when a band puts something out there that's a bit different.

Stay Vicious, 1,000 years, Get Hurt, Rollin and Tumblin, Helter Skeleton and Break Your Heart are standouts. 1,000 years and Underneath The Ground stand out as the tracks that are truly different to their previous work. The others grow on you with each listen, the only dud on the album is ironically called Ain't That a Shame.

I would definitely recommend getting the deluxe version, Sweet Morphine and Mama's Boys carry on the Gaslight Anthem tradition of bonus tracks that could/should have been included on the standard album.

I highly recommend this album, newcomers will probably love it straight away, fans of the band may need to stick with it for a few listens but it'll reward you for doing so.

I’ll be honest: I didn’t like this album on the first play; but I’d followed the Gaslight Anthem for so many years, that I had to give it a try: and boy, how it grew on me! It’s a complex album, but the layering of the harmonics and instrumentals are sublime. This is a classic album and all credit to GLA for their bravery. I recall that 40 years ago I had the same problem getting into the Stones ‘Exile on Main Street’ and that became a classic: this will too! This is an impressive album: buy it and enjoy it!

At some point, a band has to evolve, and the best challenge their fans to come along for the ride. When i had read that Brian Fallon had mentioned Pearl Jam's 'No Code' as an influence on the making of the new album, i figured 'Get Hurt' would be the start of that ride. Instead, the desire to change and yet at the same time not alienate their original fan base leaves The Gaslight Anthem caught between a rock and a hard place. It's by no means a bad album, it's just that everything about 'Get Hurt' sounds familiar, and though the album hints at progression, it never really offers anything new. I'm not about to give up on The Gaslight Anthem just yet, as when it's good, there aren't many better bands around.

After Handwritten I was really looking forward to this album and I wasn't disappointed. The title track is superb and there are plenty more strong tunes on here. So do yourself a favor and Get Hurt

Hi :)
I bought this (and love it)! It was delivered sooner than I expected too.
My one question is why Have Mercy is not on this album? Thank you!

From punk rock to Dad rock, really disappointing !!! To be honest it sounds like outtakes from the wonderful Horrible Crows record
