In my age baffled state I'd have said Cold War Kids would be a bit 'punk rock' but the track I just heard was kinda 'heartland rock' with a big booming foghorn of a voice belting it out. Like the Hold Steady crossed with an air raid siren. Sure to get bagfuls of airplay on XFM. They've played 'Live at Third Man' so they can't be all bad. We'll have to see.

I have been a fan since I first heard `Hospital Beds' and this is their fifth studio album and I have to say it's as full of vim and toe taping, hand clapping tunes as any album I have ever heard. They also have grown braver with the stylistic choices, with the finale, "Hear My Baby Call" approximating a blues groove. The rest of the songs are good too, but the above just happens to be the one I like best. With the diversity of music but clarity of purpose, "Hold My Home" is another solid effort from the Cold War Kids.
