Pumped! The living room tour is coming through my area, after x-mas crazyness I might try to help find a space for it.
Already? Awesome, still need to listen to the last one
Has he released anything off of this? I was surprised to see him doing this before a new Hold Steady record. His two records and are so different, that I'm curious to see if this continues the Faith in the Future sound or something new.
Hear 'Preludes,' The First Single From Craig Finn's New Solo Album
oooooo me likee dat
ep with 4 bonus tracks if you get it through Pledge Music
Craig Finn: New Album: "We All Want The Same Things" on PledgeMusic
So this album is pretty impressive, especially "God In Chicago" which is absolutely devastating.
This is insanely good. First solo record that has felt fully developed and not an obvious side project.
Yep album is great.
This is phenomenal. Will probably be a top 5 album of the year for me. The last three songs are so good.
This is great, by far his best solo work. "God in Chicago" is the instant favorite.
Agreed with everyone above, this is a great album and by far his best solo work.
Best thing he's written since Boys & Girls, I think.
I loved Faith in the Future, but this is next level. Really loving it.
^^^agreed but I love Stay Positive, that seems to be the forgotten album in their discog.
Rescue Blues is probably my favorite, that song just does something for me. That chorus with "Looking off the balcony, well that seems pretty pure to me" is oddly moving to me.
I do too, and I love a number of songs from HIW as well. This is just super great.
damn God in Chicago is such an emotional roller coaster
This record is such an amazing surprise. I'm a huge Hold Steady fan but was pretty vanilla on the first two solo records Craig released. This however is fantastic.
I also didn't love the first 2 solo albums......but DO love Hold Steady..........just curious, is this just "better" or is it different musically from the previous 2 as well ??
I really liked Faith in the Future, and I feel like this is a better version of it. Totally different from the first one, but a continuation of the 2nd one, IMO.
Finally got around to this record. Definitely sounds like he's found his feet as a solo artist more than ever before.
Can we get a petition going for him and Ryan Adam to cover each other's "Rescue Blues?" Like he did with Titus and "No Future"
Titus Andronicus And Craig Finn Covered Each Other’s “No Future”
I'd cry tears of joy.
So are we all in agreement that “God in Chicago” is the saddest song of 2017?
