The Hold Steady: <em>A Positive Rage </em>

Release Date: Available now

The two previously unreleased studio tracks are good but not great; the real prize here is the accompanying 53-minute DVD documentary, which follows the band through its 2007 tour of England and the U.S. The concert sequences are fun, but even better is the backstage footage showing the band as it collectively arrives at that holy-shit realization they’re blowing up all over the world, and that they can quit their day jobs. It’s a remarkable snapshot of a band on the cusp of greatness, grabbing for the brass ring.
