Very good

Nice work, not bombastic like a Hold Steady album, but the lyrics are there and the arrangements are cool.

Hooks and Phrases

Hooks and phrases that stay with you long after you’ve stopped listening. Great use of imagery. Thanks for all the music, Craig.

Great for longtime fans and new listeners alike

Another great solo album from Craig Finn, best known as the lead singer and lyricist of The Hold Steady, best known as the greatest active rock 'n' roll band today (in my humble opinion).

This album sounds rather different from Craig's solo debut, which had a distinct homespun and new country feel to it. In contrast, Faith in the Future sounds more like a contemporary indie/rock songwriter record. The arrangements are always varied and interesting: "Roman Guitars" and "Saint Peter Upside Down" in particular have some nice horn parts. And the lyrics are classic Craig Finn, recounting stories of folks facing tough times, with just enough ambiguity and symbolism to keep things interesting.

This is definitely a must-listen for Hold Steady and Finn fans, but also a great entrance point for the curious. Highly recommended.
