The Hold Steady: Almost Killed Me [Mar. 19th, 2004|03:16 pm]
collating bones
Never cottoned onto Lifter Puller the way everybody I know who would potentially like it did, and I think it's going to take seeing a live show to make me appreciate this band too. Witty quips all over the lyrics, all delivered in the same bark--maybe if I could get a grip on the music in my head, that'd help. In other words, I find myself wanting to like this, and I can will myself to during "Knuckles" and "Most People are DJs," but I need something to push me over the edge of where I am, which is admiring this album without attachment to it.
