Stay Positive and Heaven is Whenever both felt a little disappointing, but still looking forward to this one.
I will never say no to a Hold Steady album or show.
Looking forward to this. I've said it before but I think Heaven is Whenever is pretty underrated and I prefer it to Stay Positive which has some great songs but a bit of filler.
Maybe a little biased in favour of Stay Positive cause it was the first album of theirs that I heard and saw them live on the following tour though...
I think at the time I was down on it but I really like Heaven is Whenever now. Weekenders <3
Either way, a Hold Steady record is an excuse for them to tour and a Hold Steady tour IS JUST THE BEST EVER so whatever really.
Stay Positive could have been a great mini album, as it is something about it just passes me by. (although Constructive summer is still awesome).
Heaven is a grower and always felt to me like a bit of an epilogue to the previous albums what with all the lyric references to other songs and even lifter puller stuff so you're only really going to get the most of it if you know their other stuff.
I love Weekenders and Sweet Part of the City.

I'm not a big fan of "trad" rock yet I love The Hold Steady.
