I Was Doing Alright (Then A Few People Died) – Craig Finn – “Sometimes I wonder if anything means anything” a girl during a drunken late night three bottle conversations wonders. It’s a good question and we all know what Craig’s thoughts are, but it is good to hear him think his way through – A
If there is nothing as great as “Honolulu Blues” it is much much better than the last Hold Steady album. Craig is like Snoop Dogg, his voice is so distinctive that when the song isn’t rock solid, the voice overwhelms it.
