iTunes Review

Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is one of rock’s great storytellers, a writer who can squeeze a novel into four minutes and still have room for guitar solos. His bittersweet third album follows—as always—the lives of good people stuck in bad situations, from the lonely, Springsteen-esque hearts of “Tangletown” to the deal gone wrong of “God in Chicago,” which marries Finn’s exquisite spoken-word poetry to a melancholy piano ballad.

Customer Reviews

A great songwriter goes technicolor

As we have come to expect, Craig Finn delivers another album of unique and great songs. All of the songs are filled with interesting characters and great little details, but I think more often than in the past, he is writing his own story. This record is more varied that the last two, with cool instrumentation throughout. Early favorites include "Jester and June" and "Preludes.". "God in Chicago" is a beautifully sad movie in less than 5 minutes. Well done.

Bittersweet and familiar

Not quite the punch in the face of The Hold Steady, but solid songwriting and creative storytelling. Its almost as if the boys in the bands from Joke About Jamaica grew up. The characters all feel familiar and the music is melancholy and moody with enough of a beat to keep it from become by depressing. This will be an album that grows on you until it becomes your favorite.

A BOOK OF SHORT STORIES

GREAT ALBUM FROM BEGINNING TO END. IT'S LIKE A BOOK OF SHORT STORIES WITH A GREAT SOUNDTRACK. RESCUE BLUES AND TANGLETOWN WILL BE ON MY PLAYLISTS FOR A LONG TIME.
