Accountancy’s loss is rock ‘n’ roll’s gain.

The Hold Steady, a pub band gone good and another Brooklyn based band in my CD collection, sure they’ve bought a lot of Bruce Springsteen albums, but they rock, and the lead singer looks like a middle management accountant, so what’s not to like?

TRACK SEVEN: Both Crosses

Starts slow, drifts along, ends up at track eights without much of a fanfare. It’s not that it’s bad it’s just that for one it doesn’t have the line ‘In bar light she looked alright. In daylight she looked desperate. That’s alright, I was desperate too.’ We’ve all been that solider.

For me the single Sequestered in Memphis is the one to skip to this time.

TRACK SEVEN ISĀ  NOT A WINNER.
