    I'll include Brian's solo stuff, but leaving the title as Gaslight Anthem. I feel like the name is more recognizable.

    Rank em, tell us why, or just pick one.

    Link to all of the other polls here. You can leave suggestions for new polls there or here. Whatevs.

    oh my god, I'm back on my bullshit Prestigious

    59 Sound and Sleepwalkers are my two faves but I voted for Sleepwalkers because I know what's going to get more votes lol

    I went with The '59 Sound, as I suspect many people will. They had just been announced as the opener for a tour that also included Thrice, Alkaline Trio, and Rise Against, all bands of which I was already a pretty big fan of. I figured I should check out Gaslight beforehand, and The '59 Sound absolutely floored me. I really love all of their albums (and Brian's solo stuff, too), but that's the one that got me through the door.

    This is very tough. Obviously what the 59' Sound did to my life 10-11 years ago is only matched to what Enema of the State did to me 20 years ago. That album is perfect. HOWEVER, I hold Handwritten near and dear to my heart. I've mentioned in several Gaslight/Brian threads how lyrically important and on point that record was at a very special time in my life. I look back to 2012 for so many reasons ... and this album played every single day from July-December.

    I am voting for Handwritten because even though the 59' Sound may be a perfect 10/10 ... I rank Handwritten 9.98/10 and I want to give it love as we all know the 59' Sound will win this poll if everyone doesn't do what I and Jake did lol.

    I actually can’t pick. Too many good choices.

    The '59 Sound. That was surprisingly easy.

    Elsie wasn’t even on the list. Plus, hopefully next year at some time there will be one more new album to add.

    Went with Handwritten but Sink or Swim is close. Love all the gaslight albums and the horrible crowes but never really got into his solo albums for some reason.

    Sleepwalkers is more Gaslight than Painkillers, but in the end they all have the Brian factor.

    I still think American Slang and Sleepwalkers have songs with a similar -clasheque vibe.

    The '59 Sound, American Slang, Elsie, and Handwritten have all been my favs at different times, and still can be depending on the day. Usually, I'll go '59 Sound, but those four all have different strengths that they bring to the table. The two solo albums are a bit lower down, and Get Hurt is a cut below those.

    I threw Elsie on the end and you can change votes if you want. Wasn't aware of that one. Sry.

    59 Sound. Elsie is a close second.
  15. Sal Paradise


    Voted 59 sound, Elsie prob second but I don’t find myself listening to that one much for whatever reason.

    Part of me wanted to vote Get Hurt, because it’s my second favorite Gaslight album, and I feel like it never got a fair shake, but I didn’t want to ruin the integrity of the Chorus poll.

    Going American Slang but it's real real close

    Elsie and it isn’t even close. I love all his stuff, but Elsie remains supreme.

    If the Georgia EP is on here, surely the Señor and the Queen should be as well?

    59 sound and handwritten at the top for me.

    American Slang. Picked it up the night before going to New York for the first time so the album will forever be linked with that memory.

    I'd like to be my old self again Moderator

    Señor and the Queen is the correct answer.

    So I’ll vote 59.
  22. PaperthinHymn


    Voted 59 Sound, but love Elsie and Brian's solo records, and a lot of Handwritten.
