Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - Will Hermes
No band displays the ranting soul, haunted heart or diseased liver of the American rock myth with more truth and empathy than the Hold Steady....The Brooklyn band's fourth set [is] a punk-weaned, 21st-century version of The Wild, the Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle.
MTV News - Big James Montgomery
The best band in America make the best album of their career, a sprawling, profane opus.
