Dwnld: Another Night /  Get What You Give

Have you ever wandered what the Strokes would sound like if Bruce Springsteen and the E-street band played all there songs? Well now you do. The Men, a five-piece, are a hybrid post punk/ Country/ Blues band that hail from Brooklyn. They have produced a decent collection of albums through their short career, with Tomorrow Hits being their 4th LP. The interesting thing about this and all of the group’s records is that there really is never a dull moment. Tracks like Another Night,  and Going Down are contructed with tempered flare. Pearly Gates, which brings up images of Chuck Berry, is the hidden gem of the album. It is tucked away in the end of the record, which combined with Settle Down allow the record to end almost on its own terms.
