They've become too much like The Used in that they experiment with too many awkward sounding cords, cord transitions, and melodic arrangements. Overall, I don't like the sound. On top of this, Finch has a complete thematic break from 'fire' to their new theme of 'blood', which is never cool. Fire is far more interesting than blood ever will be. Due to this, I give the new album a thumbs down, compared to their last album and the expectations I had for this one. :-t

The Wallflowers CD, however, is pretty decent. Glad I bought it. ;-D


Wow, thanks for posting that, i'm not a huge fan of the Used so i'll stay away from the new Finch. Thanks dude :-D

No problem, although I think the song "Ink" is definately worth a download (legally, of course...I'm way against illegal downloading). There's two others that are, but the CD is not worth the full price. Glad I could be of help.

I won't pick on you ;-D . My father in law has a huge collection of records, and I do mean vinyl records! He still listens to them too. ;-D

http://www.otrvinyl.com or ebay seller otrvinyl. That's my dad website; he may be the biggest collector of vinyl ever.


I've got almost all of Pink Floyd's albums on vinyl. Just one of my many claims to stud-liness ;-D

Think they're worth anything? Just curious.

I heard Finch, I wasn't all that impressed, although I do like the hard stuff quite a bit. For me it's all about the Neurosis. B-)

There are a few, but it's a HUMONGOUS difference in style. The change they went through is practically the same as Dusty Baker suddenly pulling his pitchers after 85 pitches.

The Wallflowers released a new album a week or two ago. I heard two songs from it (Beautiful Side of Somewhere and Here He Comes) and both were excellent. Wondering if anyone has bought this album and has comments.

Please do not make fun of my use of the word 'album' instead of CD. I'm an old-school music fan for the most part.


The title should've been: Two new batches of music for y'all to rip...

Wait did I say that? O:-)

I officially hate the new Finch CD. I can't stand it :-P .

Ok, the songs worth a listen on this album.

Out of a possible ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D , where 1 ;-D means it is decent.
Ink - ;-D ;-D ;-D
Bitemarks and Bloodstains - ;-D ;-D
Insomniac Meat - ;-D

Past that, this album is not worth a listen. I wish I had spent the $11.99 on kleenex to wipe away the tears from crying about how terrible the new CD is.

I'll give you a quick glance at the lyrics in their new songs and you picture the sound:

Finch's New Non-Finchlike CD That I Wasted $12 On wrote:Fang bite, tarantula
Taste of my symptoms
Gasoline and a pistol
Blood filling the bathtub
Swollen eyelids
Baffled by this
Tell us what you see

And that's from their best song on this album. Imagine how bad the rest is.
