Album Review: The Hold Steady- Teeth Dreams

Hey all,

Got a new review up on Glide.

You can read it Right C'here!!!

It is of The Hold Steady's Teeth Dreams.

This is a tough one to swallow, and review for that matter. We had high hopes for this disk, and they honestly weren't fulfilled, but in a strange way. The songs hold up really well and we loved them live and in their acoustic form, they are not at fault, but the production and final product of a disk just doesn't have the punch and energy I expected. I blame the producer but the final call is really with the band.

In no way is it a bad album, and we still get giddy over Finn's lyrics (every single one of them) but overall the final package of Teeth Dreams just feels a bit diluted and tame when we wanted bad-ass rock.

Anyway, we will excitedly see them again in April with friends and family upstate and we are looking forward to it. When ranking overall Hold Steady disks though I think this one goes towards the bottom...hmm that would make a great post soon...anyway, Support the band here, buy the disk here and peep some video below:
