Glide Review: Craig Finn Clear Heart Full Eyes

Hey all,

Got a new review over on Glide.

Give it a read Right C'here!!!

It is from one of RtBE's favorites Craig Finn as he ventures out on his own with the solo album Clear Heart Full Eyes

The album is bleaker then anything The Hold Steady have ever done and that includes the song for the cutters about banging townies and getting in knife fights...

You can hear the Austin music scene drip off this disk and Craig even mentioned that the title of the album is taken from Friday Night Lights so it is pretty obvious his brain was in a southwestern/Texas mood.  While this isn't exactly his Nebraska, it does have some of the same sonic structure found on Springsteen's Ghost of Tom Joad

I had the pleasure to meet Finn this past fall and he was a down to earth cool guy.  Can't wait to catch him on tour with this album and here's hoping a new Hold Steady disk is in the works too...Grab the album and support great music, here are a few preview tracks for you to check out in the mean time:

"Honolulu Blues"

"Western Pier" Live
