A Golden album

An excellent return to form after the slight disappointment of 2007's 'Dream Days at the Hotel Existence'.

The album is introduced with 'El Camino de la Muerte' (translated to 'The Death March', a short instrumental that leads onto The first single 'All of the Dreamers', both of which gets the album off to a rollicking start. Second single 'Burn Your Name' can only be described as an anthemic love-in.

This is followed by the knockout one-two punch of 'A Fight About Money' and 'Sail the Wildest Stretch'. 'Money' finds Bernard Fanning in a lower register and barely sounds like anything the 'Finger have produced before, while 'Sail' builds and builds to a stunning crescendo. 'Poison In Your Mind' sounds like something off Fanning's solo album.

'Iberian Dream' is an stomping rocker dedicated to Bernard's wife, while 'Jewel' begins with a guttral scream from Kram, and features crunchy guitars that sound right out of the 60's. 'Think It Over' is an Abbey Road era Beatles-esque lighter anthem that features Pete Murray, Tim Rogers, Andrew Morris and the Splendour in the Grass People's choir on backing vocals.

'Awake' is a slower tempo number with beautiful lyrics, while 'Stand Yourself' is a scathing attack hidden amongst upbeat guitars. The album closes in epic fashion with the title track, which is abundant in lush orchestration. An album without dud.

Thanks to also iTunes and the Finger for the wonderful iTunes LP packaging, and the two bonus tracks. Top work :)


This is a real album of passionate songs best appreciated in its entirety. It's definitely among the very best work they've released. Musically diverse, executed with style and energy, and with fine production from Nick Di Dia.

With the album in the iPod I've been dabbing at tears during Sail The Wildest Stretch, marvelling at the very unexpected sounds of A Fight About Money, stomping along with Iberian Dream, rocking out with Jewel, covered in goosebumps during the haunting final track Golden Rule which encircles the album.

Being a fan I knew what they're capable of, but I admit I hadn't bargained on them delivering exactly that! Encore, gentlemen!

Golden Rule-s!

Another wonderful album from one of Australias greatest talents. I really enjoyed listerning to this album and if you're a Powderfinger fan I think you will enjoy it to.


Formed: 1994 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Within the space of three albums, Powderfinger emerged as one of Australia's most popular radio-friendly rock bands. They hail from Brisbane, famous for its sub-tropical climate and its often ultra-conservative "deep north" politics. The band grew out of a three-piece, becoming Powderfinger in 1990 with the addition of two more members, including singer/guitarist Bernard Fanning. They cut their musical teeth performing cover versions of classics by Neil Young (taking their name from one of Young's...
