Rolling Stone (p.83) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The choruses are more sculpted, but the band's tough-as-leather rush is as hard as ever..."
Spin - "[T]he disc represents a serious upgrade in attack -- it's wilder, more innocent and altogether shufflier than its predecessors."
Entertainment Weekly (p.97) - "With shouted-till-we're hoarse vocals, taut guitars, and a grizzled demeanor...they've got Garden State attitude down." -- Grade: B+
Alternative Press (p.121) - "Alex Rosamilia's guitar leads are far more soulful and well thought-out than in the past....These are expertly written songs..."
Billboard (p.36) - "The plucky guitar parts on 'The Queen of Lower Chelsea' drip with influence from Modest Mouse and the Cure, and the closing 'We Did It When We Were Young' is smoky and soulful."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Gaslight forge their own identity: a mix of tattooed-knuckle lyrical pathos and insistent melodic hooks."
Paste (magazine) - "'Stay Lucky' and 'Bring It On' are cut straight from the band's oil-stained cloth, but they nail the occasional detours as well, especially the left-field finger-snapper 'The Diamond Street Church Choir.'"
Pitchfork (Website) - "[W]ith briskly paced rockers like 'Stay Lucky', 'Orphans', and 'The Spirit of Jazz' nudging the band's blue-collar punk towards Replacements-vintage power pop."
Clash (magazine) - "[T]en slices of trembling, impassioned rock'n'roll....A sublime third effort busting with broken-hearted, wide-eyed wonder."
Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "AMERICAN SLANG delivers spectacularly on all expected fronts....There have been great leaps forward in production and the musical arrangements, which have greater depth, atmosphere and texture."

With their hearts on their sleeves and their feet planted firmly in the garden state, the Gaslight Anthem's third album, American Slang, plays out like an offering to Springsteen, the patron saint of heartland rock. The feeling on this album is considerably more relaxed. All of the punk rock tension and urgency have been replaced by a more patient and heartfelt mood. This change of pace really gives the listener the ability to sit back and take in the scenery on their musical Rust Belt road trip, making for a more moody, understated experience. There are still a few uptempo rockers on the album, with "Stay Lucky" and "The Spirit of Jazz" bringing back some of the speed that old fans might be used to. The rest of the album works in more of a midtempo space, giving singer Brian Fallon's weathered voice room to work, allowing him to really dig in and make the best use of the laid-back melody on "Bring It On" and the spaciousness of "We Did It When We Were Young." The prevailing feeling throughout this album is that American Slang represents a more mature sound from the Gaslight Anthem, showing us a band that has grown up enough to start attempting to fill the shoes of their influences. ~ Gregory Heaney
