Jesse Malin: The Fine Art Of Self Destruction

Album Review

Punk Springsteen’s Ryan Adams-produced debut, plus demos.

The Boss’s disciples have been many in the last decade or so, The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon and The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn chief among them. But in his thoughtful liner notes for this reissue, Fallon contends it was Jesse Malin who opened the way for US punk-rockers to become singer-songwriters, bringing Nebraska to NYC.
