Review - The Gaslight Anthem - Great Expectations (Single)

The Gaslight Anthem - Great Expectations (Single)

8 out of 10

If, by now you haven't heard of The Gaslight Anthem, then you must've been living with your head under an extremely large rock. Great Expectations is the first song you hear on the latest album and is a bit of a bad choice for a first single. It's not that it's a bad song by any means, but when the strength of the material on the album this is culled from is so strong, you begin to wonder why they bothered. This song is definitely sing-along material and the album is no doubt going to be the summer soundtrack for many indie and punk rock kids this summer.

The added bonus is a b-side of two acoustic tracks in the form of Miles Davis & The Cool and Great Expectations, both of which are culled from sessions for radio stations in America.


1. Great Expectations
2. Miles Davis & The Cool (Acoustic at KEXP)
3. Great Expectations (Acoustic at YROCK)
