- Summary: Though known for always being on the road, Against Me! has finally released its second major label album, which continues to blend elements of its trademark punk and folk rock with fist-pumping anthems celebrating teenage anarchy and encouraging all to fight the good fight.
- Record Label: Sire
- Genre(s): Rock, Indie/Alternative
- More Details and Credits »
2007's New Wave was an artistic and commercial breakthrough for Against Me!, the formerly stripped-down punk act, setting frontman Tom Gabel's strident, socially aware lyrics against melodic hooks via producer Butch Vig. That relationship is revisited on White Crosses.

Jan 15, 2013Album is good not great, a little glossy, a little anthemic but some missteps like Ache With Me.
I listened to the Black Crosses alternateAlbum is good not great, a little glossy, a little anthemic but some missteps like Ache With Me.
I listened to the Black Crosses alternate version of White Crosses and really enjoyed some of the versions
of tracks over "Proper" release, I would like to have seen those on original release to balance the sheen of White Crosses. I.W.T.Anarchist is simply one of the best songs Gabel has written along with Because of The Shame with its Springsteen nod. I don't know what to make of the Foo Fighters like attempt at arena rock stylings but easily more digestible with repeated listens. Do yourself a favor and buy White Crosses and Black crosses, definitely worth the price of admission.… Expand
