Review of The Gaslight Anthem – The B-Sides (Universal Music Canada)

Gaslight AnthemComprised of a collection of cover songs and acoustic versions of some previously released tracks, The Gaslight Anthem proves to be a versatile bunch with this collection of B-Sides. The Springsteen influence that the group has proudly displayed on prior efforts is especially prevalent on the acoustic versions of original songs Great Expectations, American Slang and The 59 Sound. Covers of Pearl Jam’s State of Love and Trust and The Rolling Stones Tumbling Dice are completely faithful to the originals however the insight gained into the group’s influences via this collection helps make The B-Sides a worthwhile venture.
