The Hold Steady – Separation Sunday

The Hold Steady

“Separation Sunday”

Craig Finn’s spoken-sung lyrics are at their prime on this record and the band has never sounded tighter.  Separation Sunday is so full for an album that is less than 45 minutes, your bang for your buck matches the rating for this album (Spoilers: A+).  How do you know when you have an A+ grade when reviewing albums?  When you honestly cannot pick a favorite track because you love the entire LP.

Grade: A+

Favorite Track: Hornets! Hornets!

Second Favorite: Cattle and the Creeping Things
