5.0 out of 5 stars Emo with blastbeats? Finch change the rules, 25 Mar 2002
This review is from: What It Is To Burn (Audio CD)
With their full length debut, Finch pull off the remarkable feat of blending the sensuous and beautiful melodic suss of Jimmy Eat World or Weezer with the raw power and aggressive delivery of Deftones. This album is exploding at the seams with hook after gorgeous hook, walls of dense yet articulate guitar, driving, thunderous beats and vocals that ache, soar, and in places, could strip paint. Finch have pulled off what so many other bands have failed to do and created a hybrid of emo, punk rock and hardcore that works on all of these levels whilst simultaneously sounding fresh and new. The songs vary from slow and brooding (yet typically exploding in some fantastic crescendo or climaxing magnificently) to fast and driving, beautifully catchy and melodic or, in the case of "Project Mayhem" featuring Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw, they kick up a disjointed metal noise that is part Meshuggah, part Atari Teenage Riot, part Drowningman while still managing to feel at place on this awesome CD.
For anyone who likes the aforementioned genres, Finch are worth checking out. Their "Falling Into Place" EP (two songs of which appear in rerecorded versions on this CD) is equally worth getting hold of to see a band absolutely at the top of their game, showing some of the more established bands across these genres how to make a record that is emotional and effortlessly moving but that also truly, utterly and completely rocks.
