"Although the band sounds like it’s holding back, Fallon sings with passion and gusto. He makes you feel something. When Fallon gets nostalgic, you get nostalgic. When he sings about passionately embracing his lover in a dark parking lot, pressed up against a car, you think about that one time you held someone close against your first jalopy. Fallon is just a guy like you and me, and that’s something universal we want in our idols, rock or otherwise. Handwritten houses some of Fallon’s strongest compositions to date, and while it ain’t punk, neither is The Gaslight Anthem. They’re full-on heartland rockers."

yep, that's what i think about the album.

it's a rock band on a major label - no more a punk band on an indie label

hm. Idk why it took reading this for me to realize that when people ask me who they are, I can just call them an "amazing rock band". rather than an "amazing band that it sort of punk with some soul and idk just listen to them"

I usually say Springsteen but faster and heavier, probably shouldn't.

I've never considered them to be a punk band. Heartland rockers is a perfect description. Well said.

Well that's up to you but as a diehard Springsteen fan I think that's very inaccurate. I don't see the connection at all besides imagery in the songwriting and even with that, the similarities only go so far.
