The Gaslight Anthem "Sink or Swim" (2007)

In 2007 the Gaslight Anthem seemed to leap out fullblown on their first album.  Their mix of Springsteen by way of the Clash & Social Distortion primed for the 21st century.  Frequently compared to The Hold Steady, TGA share their sincerity & their seeming belief in the power of rock to liberate.  "Sink or Swim" isn't quite as complete as their followup album, but it's still a powerful statement.
