Though he was and is the Springsteen-ish narrator in one-track-mind rockers the Hold Steady, Craig Finn's solo work shows a different side to his character albeit with his barfly persona still intact. Finn is still telling tales of stuff that goes on in his Minneapolis/St Paul neighbourhood pairing his observations with lovely indie rock.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 9th March 2018
Craig Finn is a master storyteller with a magical voice. His lyrics relay every detail with passion and insight, his vocals capture the emotional essence of day-to-day blue-collar slice-of-life existence. Although most of the music has the classic Americana rock feel, there are some surprising flourishes of synthesiser and a variety of horns. If you’re familiar with Finn’s work, you won’t find any surprises here, and that’s okay. The thing is—his words and his songs are so damn riveting that it interests you from start to finish.
