Finch - Say Hello To Sunshine
Finch's sophomore album entitled Say Hello To Sunshine is definitely a change for the band. Some Finch fans will be torn by this album, not sure whether they can embrace the new style that the band has adopted. The great points of this album have to deal with the voice maturation of Nate Barcalow. The years of following his mentor, Daryl Palumbo, have really started to show. Each song shows shades of early Glassjaw, containing the perfect combination of screaming and singing.
Say Hello To Sunshine is an album that takes a couple listens to get used to. It's easy to dislike the album on the first listen, but as with The Fall of Troy's Manipulator, you need to have a couple of listens before you are sure about your opinion. From the standards of Finch, the lyrics aren't as great as they could. But if you listen instead of trying to interpret lyrics, then everything flows just fine.
Definitely the best songs within Say Hello To Sunshine, are the harder hitting songs. The ones that come out and just attack you with such force that you can't help but finish listening. The best songs that I would personally recommend, would be Insomniatic Meat, Ravenous, Bitemarks and Bloodstains, The Casket of Roderick Usher, and Dreams of Psilocybin.
Finch, Say Hello To Sunshine, comes recomended for fans of glassjaw, or anyone of the alternative post hardcore genre of music.

This band is downright horrible. This album is proof. Good review though.
