Stay Positive, Dude

Leave it to our good friends at DC Rock Club to totally scoop us on this one, but better them than anyone else, I suppose. Anyway, The Hold Steady are currently streaming their latest album, Stay Positive, in its entirety. I haven't had a chance to make it all the way through the album yet, but I know that when we posted "Sequestered in Memphis" all three of us kinda had the same reaction - that it was positively 'meh'. I mean, we always knew there was a distinct Hold Steady formula, but now it's like they're not even trying. Oh well. Their first two albums were great and the third was decent - what more can you ask for really? Take a listen and let us know what you think in the comments.
