I want to start off by saying that I really like The Growlers. Their first few albums made my heart and my ears happy. I say with a heavy heart that City Club did not make the mark. It has more mass appeal with a cleaner, more pop-driven sound, but it lacks the growliness that I’ve grown so fond of. Maybe City Club will get better with age, but it’s going to be in the back of the record bin for a while.
