After a time, we stop noticing the things that stay the same and focus solely on what’s changed. So, for example, we can see that Craig Finn’s ‘We All Want The Same Things’ is a confident stylistic departure from his early solo work and that the bombast in his delivery has been toned down since the days when the Hold Steady were the world’s best bar band.

When Craig Finn was young he spent a fair bit of time with a copy of Lou Reed’s Greatest Hits. In particular, he was drawn to Wild Child and its cast of characters: Chuck, Phil, Betty, Ed and Lorraine. Back in 2012, while discussing the pros and cons of striking out from the comfort of your band prior to the release of his solo bow, ‘Clear Heart, Full Eyes’, he told Jessica Hopper that his biggest takeaway from the song was a simple one: he wanted to know more about Chuck.
