On this his fourth album as Fink, Greenall is still operating in a mellow, chilled-out area with the air of an early-hours beach-bum wayfarer. But before you smash the glass marked ‘Jack Johnson for the camping-at-The-Big-Chill-in-a-yurt set’ alarm, know that Fink adds a bit of balls and soul to the recipe. Here, one can hear delicate echoes of Nick Drake as well as – if you squint a bit – traces of Sade and Finley Quaye.
The standout track is Yesterday Was Hard on All of Us, one of those songs which could take on a life of its own. In fact, the entire album has a timely quality to it, filled with tunes that carefully burrow into your head: the intensely bluesin’ Wheels winds on muscularly, and the moody Who Says has echoes of Radiohead at their most pleasingly noodlesome. The sinewy title-track winds along with dashes of Bill Withers warmth and phrasing. But louder cut Fear Is Like Fire shows this set isn’t fully comfortable in a world just marked ‘acoustic’, and closer Berlin Sunrise is also something of a treat.
Perfect Darkness is rather special. A writhing, surprisingly meaty addition to the over-crowded singer-songwriter genre, it has enough individuality as not to get brushed aside with the prefix ‘just another’. If it takes Fink five years to follow this up, that should be plenty of time for this to slow burn itself into a bit of a classic.

This is a brilliant album from a brilliant artist. Discovered Fink from watching The Walking Dead and I'm glad I did!
Great addition to any acoustic fans library.
