I miss Franz Nicolay. That’s the thought I keep ending up at every time I find fault with Heaven Is Whenever, the first Hold Steady album (fifth overall) to be released without the singer/pianist since the group’s 2004 debut, Almost Killed Me. Nicolay announced his departure from the band earlier this year. I try to fight this notion--Craig Finn is the main songwriter anyway! World/Inferno Friendship Society pianist Dan Neustadt handled the keys! Nicolay’s solo album wasn't even all that great!--but I keep arriving at the same conclusion: This record needs more screaming, mustachioed guys.
