Published September 04, 2003.The ConstantinesShine a Light(Three Gut)The Constantines’ debut was a full-frontal assault that revealed a level of artistry and intelligence that defied the band’s relative infancy. Shine a Light is a fitting and worthy follow-up, displaying a greater sense of dynamic experimentation from the nail-biter “National Hum” to the muted, jazzy “Goodbye Baby.” If the band has taken any lesson from its most easily identifiable influence, Fugazi, it is to constantly evolve its art and trust its instincts. So far those lessons have served them (and us) well. —Dave Hayden
