Seems like a return to Separation Sunday era THS.
but separation sunday is my least favourite album so maybe it's no surprise.
I think it's better than anything off their last one =D
when they played the Roundhouse in Dec 08 Finn adlibbed the following into Constructive Summer:
"I can't believe it's Christmas already
I can't believe it's Christmas already
We're The Hold Steady"
this is great. Not sure it sounds much like Separation Sunday-era stuff but it's summery and poppy and awesome. The little guitar figure in the second verse is my favourite bit.
God damn. When that record first came out I reckon I listened to it a hundred times in a row. I feel this band has lost it's way a bit of late but i like that track.
Summer's not that far away...
It ain't 'Sequestered In Memphis' though.
i still can't fully get over most people are djs or killer parties or hornets, hornets or constructive summer, or party pit.
fuck i forgot how much i love the hold steady
endlessly quoteable lyrics
great live shows
OUR BAND COULD BE YOUR LIFE
Needs to be summer to fully appreciate the Hold Steady though.
