Finch - Back To Oblivion Cover

It's been too long since we've had a new album from Finch. But has the wait been worth it? Um...

Living up to past glories is a challenge for any band, but none seem to have as hard a time of it as Finch. Here they are, post-hiatus and with a desire to create again, but they only have a crushingly dull 50-odd minutes to show for it. There is none of the immediacy of ‘What It Is To Burn’ here, none of the balls of ‘Say Hello To Sunshine’ and barely a hint of any actual songs. This is a lethargic, dull attempt at writing an album from a band that sound like they’ve forgotten how to do just that.
