The Hold Steady “The Sweet Part of the City”
I have liked the first few tracks off the upcoming LP5 from the Hold Steady, the aptly titled Heaven is Whenever, but I am still up in the air about album opener “The Sweet Part of the City,” which just hit the interwebs. Like advertised, the guitars are front and center, but I feel like Craig Finn might be running out of steam with his usually amazing lyrics on this particular track. We still have a majority of the album to hear, but count me as a little worried that this might be the first Hold Steady LP that doesn’t blow me away.
