Man I cannot stand The Hold Steady. I know they have that whole uplifting and posi-core vibe going for them but I just cannot get into dude's singing style at all. Every time I hear a HS song on KEXP I give it a try and just end up turning it off because I'm just waiting for the guy to get to the point of his ramble.

@2 the whole key to Hold Steady is appreciating Craig Finn. of course, if you don't like his style, then you won't like the band because, really, the music isn't exactly ground-breaking. he's kinda like bob dylan: no one can really defend his singing, but it's really all in what he's saying.

@2 I am totally with you. I'm the only person I know who doesn't like that band. I just cannot stand his "singing" style.l He's basically talking. That, in and of iteself isn't such an offense, but for some reason the way he does it grates on my nerves.
