...but any one here ever heard of The Hold Steady, or is it just me being an ignoramus?
glad to be of service
Straight up springsteen-esque rock. Good stuff and enjoyable if very predictable fun.
Pitchfork gave it a whopping 9.4 - it's not that good imo.
I must be missing something about the Hold Steady. Sounded like an Thin Lizzy/E Street band tribute record to me.
Still a decent list.
As I say, I've never heard them, but the review makes them sound like the Spin Doctors - which is obviously very concerning.
yet another nonsense top X list...It really should have read 'The top X album's you should make yourself/pretend to like just so you can namecheck them in pretentious-offs with your muso mates - n.b. if any of the records become popular they will be removed from the list.'
I mean, The Drift? That honestly is one of the worst albums i've heard. Also, the Jenny Lewis record is half good at best - saved by 'handle me with care' and 'you are what you love(?)'
is amazing. AMAZING.
is noise. BAD noise. Irritatingly bad noise, that even Westlife would struggle to match. Oh, but it's Scott Walker, that's ok then. WRONG. It could've been Des Walker* for all i care, it was still really bad.
*this would have worked better had i been a Notts Forest fan. I guess i could have used Roy Walker, but i'm not a huge fan of his either. Luke Skywalker? maybe.
How good does good noise need to be to become bad and visa versa. Maybe something's been lost in translation.
The Drift = Very bad/good (depending on your definition)
is the very definition of BAD.
damn you sloppy grammar - diluting the point!
should be that high up.
No recognition for The Radio Dept either, which saddens me.
Really nice to see Jenny Lewis feature so highly.
Excellent as it is, is only 1 35min track. It's just drug music, and all the better for it...
...guess I'm going to have to investigate.
the Hold Steady. The 3/10 review on here was ridiculous.
