iTunes Review

“Not everyone is gonna dig it,” Fink wrote about his new release, Hard Believer. It's difficult to figure out whom he may have been talking about. The English artist (a former electronic DJ turned guitar-based singer/songwriter) has put out a string of records in his newish persona since 2006, and with Hard Believer, Fink (Fin Greenall) should be putting any doubts to rest. From the opening title track—with its stealthy, spare beat and Fink’s dusky vocals threading in and out of a bluesy tableaux—to the thrumming and slightly hopeful tune “Keep Falling,” a number of admirable touchstones come to mind: Nick Drake, Iron & Wine, Elliott Smith. (The fantastic “Looking Too Closely” somehow conjures all three.) But Fink has his own sound, which is especially effective in the moments when he layers electronic atmospherics over or under the songs. See “White Flag,” with its hints of dub and squalling electronics, or the huge “Shakespeare,” which goes for the jugular just for the heck of it, leaving listeners both elated and spent. (And, indeed, “Why do they teach Shakespeare/When you’re only 16/No idea what it all means”?)

Customer Reviews

Don't think twice

Top notch music from Fink. If you're a long-time fan or first timer, you'll enjoy this album. I Loved it on first listen.

Fink has become me and my wife's favorite band over the years. I find their music fitting for the good times and the tough times in life. Nothing speaks to me more than their lyrics.

I've turned so many friends on to these guys. They'll be in the U.S. In the fall so check their website for dates. So lucky they'll be in Portland 10/8 (at a terrific venue, too).

Just not very good

I’m a big fan of Fink’s older work, but this stuff is just boring. Maybe if you get high you’ll enjoy it more. I really wanted to like the album but after a couple listens, its just meh.

I dig it.

Everyone else can go fink themselves.
