KEXP Suggests – The Hold Steady!

“This Brooklyn-via-Minneapolis band just keeps getting better. While their two previous albums showed some notable classic rock influences, their 3rd album simply sounds like a classic, with muscular production, killer guitar riffs, more prominent piano melodies, and one great epic rock song after another. While Craig Finn mostly stuck to a spoken vocal style on the 1st two albums, he sings more here. Finn might be the best songwriter in rock ‘n’ roll, and this time his gritty tales use the basics of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll to get to deeper insights about life, love and community.” – Don Yates
