ScottOct 12, 2004best indie shit out there.
SethPOct 1, 2003Wow. This is a breath of fresh air.
MitchBDec 11, 2003These songs are perfectly composed to emphasize the poetic lyrics and the intricate, yet intense melodies. The Constantines are prophets.
woMay 3, 2004This album does nothing but grow on you. As strong as it is the first few times you listen to it, it's far better after more. Also, this is a band that is a must see.

AmandaSep 11, 2003Wow. Once a year there's a CD that pumps me up so much that i find myself uncontrollably speeding as a drive around listen to it. Last year, I received a speeding ticket while "jamming" to And You Will Know Us by the Trail of the Dead's Source Tags and Name Codes. And, this year, it was The Constantine's Shine a Light. Speeding tickets become my criteria for a top album of the year. Shine a Light is full of what music today was essentially missing. Poetic prose lyrics, driving guitar, and that raspy Springstein voice. Tempo changes, lovely bass lines, everything that encompasses a TIMELESS rock album. Well done, my friends to the north, well done.… Collapse
