A great album. Intelligent, musical, rough yet tight all at once. The comparisons to Bruce Springsteen are highly misleading. Vocally, they're close to Joe Strummer; musically, they go their own way. All I can do ... is follow ...

Constantines are a great band. If you haven't heard them, go and pick up any of their other three albums, all of which are amazing. I really would suggest leaving this one for last though.
Their first, self titled record is a brilliant, angular piece with a heavy dose of punk in it. This album just seems to be a weak attempt to replicate that- everything's practically the same, but just not as good. That's really the only way I can describe it.
The subsequent records, Tournament of Hearts and Kensington Heights, are a much more interesting listen. The band has moved on musically with a sound reminiscent of Broken Social Scene in places.
I suppose this isn't necessarily a bad album; there are some decent songs there, but being surrounded by others which are enormously superior really highlights its flaws.

I have to admit that I'm out of touch with the Canadian music scene, and I bought this after hearing Young Lions used as an intro to the Pittsburgh v Washington series in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs, on Hockey Night in Canada. (Crosby versus Ovechkin etc...)
A very good album. Some of the tracks are pretty heavy, along the lines of that steel mill, industrial, Sub Pop grind. Young Lions is the best track. Alongside a few other songs on the album, it rises from out of the hard sounds with a feathers-and-strong-whiskey softness. There are some really interesting lyrics too, when you can hear them. I like it when bands sing about learning to survive on earthworms etc. That kind of depth means an album can grow on you.

A mixture of great sounds from big bass to melodics guitar and Clashlike lyrics, may even be a bit of E Street in there.
Anyone with a liking for rock with gruff vocals should invest.
Shine a light makes a great single in that E Street fashion. My fave track would be Young Lions for its ambient guitar and rock melody....very The River
There's no new sounds, but tried and tested good fun rock and roll
