Album No. 7: The Gaslight Anthem, "The '59 Sound"
In my opinion, New Brunswick's The Gaslight Anthem recorded this year's surprise record. Not only that it's a delightful surprise, as The '59 Sound is an album that Springsteen himself would adore. Songs about lost, confused youth, and other Jersey-related subject make this one of the most moving albums of the year. Let's hope for more fine releases from these Jersey punks.
Key Tracks: "The '59 Sound", "The Patient Ferris Wheel", "The Backseat"
