The Hold Steady caught everyones attention a short while ago w/ their last effort Stay Positive. On the strength of that cd they embarked on a very successful tour w/ the drive by Truckers. This cd is a strong follow up to the recent success. The writing and playing is great. The singer's style and sound will either make you ultimately LOVE or HATE this band. If you like Springsteen's style or Elvis Costello's voice w/ an occassional popped "P" you're set to go. I like the songs enough to get through this small hurdle... much as I did with the formerly mentioned icons.
I would recommend this to a friend
