The Hold Steady — Chillout Tent

When I first listened to this album, I didn’t like it very much. “All of the songs sound the same!” And their style is odd — the lead “singer” basically just talks, somewhat to the rhythm, while other people play music and occasionally sing.

But it grew on me. Now, Boys and Girls in America and Stay Positive are two of my favorite general-listening albums.
