Mini Review of The Hold Steady's Heaven is Whenever

Heaven is Whenever by The Hold Steady- Continually perfecting their Bukowski soaked, Springsteen influenced fractured hymns for lapsed Catholics, the quintessential bar band is now offering a reprieve from the 1st person narratives of alcohol drenched sin and heartbreak longing for unattained salvation by growing up just a bit… as they make the kids sing along. “Hurricane J” is a revelation. On the downside; No songs about Ybor City.
