5.0 out of 5 stars no words to describe, 1 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Sink Or Swim (Audio CD)
What a great, great album this is. It starts of with boomboxes and dictionaries which is absolutely fantastic. Anyone who thinks they sound like the killers (like my wife).....You will be proven wrong! The gaslight anthem is much, much better. The entire album is a greatest hits score! And as if this album wasn't good enough already, it was followed up by the '59 sound, GREATEST HITS, PART 2. Whether you like punkrock, rock, americana, just get it, absolutely worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars short but sweet, 1 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Senor and the Queen (Audio CD)
The only downside of this album is that it only has 4 songs........what a shame. Great EP though, just as everything else the gaslight anthem has put out so far. In my opinion one of the best punkbands currently out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars it doesn't get any better, 1 Feb. 2009
Let's not spill too many words on this. Truly one of the very best punkrock albums of all times.
Anyone who remotely likes punkrock: GET IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars kickass record, 1 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Sundowning (Audio CD)
Sundowning is -in my humble opinion- one of the best hardcore debuts I have ever heard. Fast-paced, aggresive, great lyrics and in your face. The songs are very well written, great riffs and great drumwork. The production however is rather flat. This is much, much better on Misfortunes, their second album. Personally though, I prefer this album, but if you're smart..just get both, as they are really, really worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars best female voice in country music!?, 13 Sept. 2008
Just listen to this absolutely fantastic CD and see if above statement is true. To me, this is the best country release I have heard in years. Great songwriting, nice covers, and a stunning voice!

5.0 out of 5 stars still going strong, 13 Sept. 2008
Although Lagwagon has been at it for years and years now, they keep coming up with great songs. Their last full length "resolve" being a very fine example of this statement. This 7 track also has some very good songs. It has a really nice, rather dark and raw production.
If you like Lagwagon, this will be a good addition to your collection. However, if you are new to the band, I don't think this is the CD to start with, get some old stuff first instead. If you want to try the "raw" Lagwagon, get "duh" and "trashed", if you like the polished stuff, get "hoss" or "let's talk about feelings". If you like both, just get "let's talk about leftovers." But...if you are really smart, just get their entire catalogue, because Lagwagon still is one of the greatest punkrockbands around!

5.0 out of 5 stars ADRENALIN!, 14 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Misfortunes (Audio CD)
This is truly a great, great CD! Straight from the start it totally blows you away!
There aren't that many hardcore bands I like due to the fact that I dislike most vocals.
This is hell however, has one of the greatest singers in the scene.

It is fast, agressive and bloody great! If you like bands like Raised Fist and Ignite, GET IT!
