R2K Finch album rocks my socks,
This review is from: What It Is To Burn (Audio CD)
This is possibly the best album i have ever bought! Finch are like a heavier taking back sunday but have a variety of different influences from blink 182 to radiohead (although i hate radiohead i can see why they could be similar to some people). 'perfection through silence' is my favourite song and for me typifies Finch's charm. They are melodically excellent and i would recommend the album to any emo/prog. hardcore/ punk fans. i took a chance when buying the album after discovering them through a promo on drive thru records (an awesome record label in my opinion) and was blown away. I think this album is full of singles, any would have been a successful release and i was delighted when they released 'letters to you' as i had previously heard it on their fantastic EP 'falling into place'. Stand out tracks for me are New Begginings, Grey Matter (featuring Darryl Palumbo of Glassjaw), Untitled, Ender and of course Letters to You and What it is to Burn. I would also recommend buying or listening to the compilation, 'Atticus 2...dragging the lake' as there is a track called 'Worms of the Earth' which was on the soundtrack to a film called 'Underworld'. This apparently is an insight to what their new album will be like!
What it is to Burn really is an amazing LP, an has bridged the gap between pop punk rock and emo/hardcore.
