The Hold Steady – “The Weekenders”

I finally grabbed the latest record from The Hold Steady, Heaven is Whenever, and it’s good. Not great, mind you, but consistently good, as many of the reviews attest to.  It’s not going to win over any new fans, but it’s sure to please those already devoted to their riffy, wastoid sound.

    Loves me some Hold Steady, just saw them last night at the El Rey actually, but Heaven is Whenever is easily my least favorite record thus far.

    I would agree, it's my least favorite record, though it's got some great moments and is really growing on me. I love the first track, which has a more country-inspired sound to it!
