Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Finch's first full-length album "what it is to burn" not only went gold, but helped mold a new genre of music while doing so. The band has matured artistically and continues to push boundaries. With their new cd 'Say Hello To Sunshine', finch allowed for maximum creative freedom for the recording process and took a year in their hometown of Temecula (60 miles north of san diego) to make something uniquely finch. MCA. 2005.

Amazon.com

Naysayers of hard rock and metal describe the genre as bordering on one-directional, when the truth is that great hard music is so much more than that. An amalgamation of jazz rhythms, emotive metal-influenced vocals and strong instrumentation happens when the genre hits it just right. Finch contained all of those elements on their much-heralded full-length, What It Is To Burn, and the result created a nearly religious fan base; expectations have been high during the three year wait for their new disc Say Hello To Sunshine. The strongest tracks on this release are ultimately are the most jagged, from the opening guttural growl of "Insomniatic Meat" to tracks like "Fireflies" and "Miro" which shows the group's emo-core colors brightly. Their whisper-to-a-scream tendencies are all over the disc, as the group moves from mixed tempos with deep howls to straight-up belted-out choruses. There is an obvious System Of A Down-meets-Linkin Park reference that also can't be ignored. The lead single, "Bitemarks and Bloodstains," is deceptive--the disc is consistently harder than this song. In fact, the whole is much stronger than the single. --Denise Sheppard

Finch did the impossible. They started with a CD bursting with tracks just itching to be put on the radio, pop-punk everywhere with What It Is To Burn. The vast majority of it was an easy sell on the general public. But don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing it at all, I think it was a great CD. Then this rolls out. This is just my opinion, but I feel like this is a lot closer to what Finch really wants to sound like, as opposed to what they thought people wanted them to sound like. And I love it. I've worn out this CD and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Its a real shame they're now on hiatus.

Yeah, so we'll get past the obvious this doesn't sound like their last one BS. If bands put out CD's that all sounded the same, music would never evolve, it'd get boring, and people would stop listening. Finch was emo, and they obviously got bored of it. Good for them.

This review is really hard to write because typically you compare it to something else, but I am having a difficult time doing that. The guitars are full of energy on every song and the riffs are catchy as hell. Same goes for the vocals. One minute its whispers, the next minute its screaming, then its a beautiful harmony...and it all flows together so well. The melodies are anything but predictable and they are great. Some of the sounds almost have a goofy/video game type thing going for them, but its done in a good way. The best comparison I can think of is System Of A Down, which was mentioned in the main review.

Comparing it to System is probably the greatest compliment, but don't get that confused with it sounding like System of A Down. The similarities that exist are because of the uniqueness of the song structures and rhythms througout the album. With most songs, you can listen to the first 45 seconds and figure out how the rest of the song will go. You can't say that about this album. I'd say the guitars are even better than System just because they are layered with 2 different things going on at once. System has the unique time signatures and riffs, but tend to stay with a traditional alternative distortion. The guitars on this album have a very raw yet powerful sound to them....almost as if Franz Ferdinand got heavy. OK - so thats the best comparison I can come up with - System Of A Down meets Franz Ferdinand. That alone should intrigue you.

Finch tried to completely redefine themselves with this album, and in all honesty they did. In fact they completely shed the skin that they had been in for so long and decided to create something different and original for this album, and that they did. I love this album personally. I think the lyrics are incredible, the vocals are top notch, and the music is just off the wall and the band is really tight. Sure it's different from WIITB (which I love just as much), but as a musician I know that when you write the same old sound all the time you get bored with your music, your band, and the passion isn't there as much as it used to be. These guys got their collaborative minds in gear and recorded something unique and for that I was seriously happy. When I found out that it was going to be heavier and more on the screaming side of things I was thrilled, because I thought "Worms of the Earth" was a phenomenal song. The sad part about this album though is the way that the fans reacted to it. Just because a band changes it's sound, they just decide that they've sold out, which really in all reality they lost more fans with this album, but they did what they felt was going to be the album they wanted to make, and create something completely different. People are so picky today, they'll walk away from you at the drop of a hat. As soon as you write something different from what your old CD was kids flip out just cause it's not what they expected, write it off, and go looking for something new. Good job Finch, I loved WIITB and I love SHTS, both CDs rock and it's a sad day cause I just found out from another reviewer that you guys broke up. It's a shame cause these tracks are all incredible.

I was kind of suspicious when Finch pretty much vaporized in 2003, after receiving some well deserved success with "What It Is To Burn." Instead of milking the success like they could have, Finch took the high road, disappeared, and have re-emerged two years later with a brand new album, "Say Hello To Sunshine" and a brand new sound. When "What It Is To Burn" (and the EP, "Falling Into Place") came out, Finch's sound was still fresh. Not many bands at the time were doing what these guys did. Now, three years later, and you can't get away from the scene. Just like rap-metal was oversaturated five years ago, the current "screamo" scene is overflowing as well. So, you know, things had to change. Whereas their contemporaries in The Used counteracted the trend by making their follow-up album a poppier, more accessible affair, Finch toughened up and created an angsty and loud new sound for themselves.

So how does it work? Well, on one hand, it's a breath of fresh air, really. I know I'm not alone in my feelings that there are just too many boring bands doing the same boring things, and it's great that one of the pioneers of that sound are doing something to change things up. On the other hand, I really dug "old" Finch. "What It Is To Burn" wasn't perfect, but it was still a solid album that displayed both sides of Finch, agressive and sensitive. Sadly, "Say Hello To Sunshine" bares very little resemblance to the Finch you knew before. If you are familiar with "Worms Of The Earth," the b-side that appeared on 2003's "Underworld" soundtrack (and the "Atticus II" compilation), then you have a pretty good idea of what kind of sound Finch are going for here.
