Craig Finn - Clear heart full eyes

Review1493_craig_finn_-_clear_head_full_eyes

Craig Finn is an american singer and guitarist, and is best known as a frontman for the bands "Lifter Puller" and "The hold steady". In 2011 Finn challenged himself to write a new song every day in his Brooklyn apartment. "I had written a bunch of songs that were outside of the norm for The Hold Steady, a little quieter and perhaps more narrative," says Finn. "I wanted to gain some experience and insight into the process of making a record by working with new people.". The result is this solo album, "Clear heart, full eyes".

Musically the album is a lot less rocky than THe Hold Steady, and varies style-wise considerably across the album. You've got slow laid-back songs (e.g. Not much left of us), more up-tempo stuff (When no ones watching). "Terrified eyes" is country rock, and despite the name, "Honolulu blues" isnt blues but is more of a stomping classic rock track. Craig Finn delivers his vocals in an almost speaking style, which works well.

The album is packed with great songwriting. All the songs take a narrative style, telling stories and demonstrating Craig Finn's great eye for detail. This is a really good album and is well worth a listen.


"Clear heart full eyes" is out now from Full Time Hobby records.
