I'm just going to get this out there right now, I'm not a fan of the Gaslight Anthem.  I mean, yeah, I have The '59 Sound, but I think everyone does.  I'm not saying they are bad by any means, they are very good, it's just not my cup of tea.  Matter of fact, I'm not even a tea kind of guy, I prefer coffee.  Brian Fallon's solo album, Painkillers, is that coffee.  I don't know why I enjoy this so much more than anything Gaslight has released, but for me it has more substance and it could have easily been a Gaslight album.  I get a lot of blues and country vibes from this as well, nothing overbearing but enough to notice.  This was a request and a lot of times the requests don't get filled because I don't personally enjoy the bands requested, and I was expecting the same thing with this.  I was wrong, this is a really well done album and I'm glad that it was mentioned in the chat box.
