Prog Reviewer
3 stars On their third album Finch lurched over to a much more traditionally symphonic direction - lineup changes meant they had to replace their drummer and keyboardist, and the near total absence of the Mahavishnu Orchestra-influenced sections that set apart their first two albums suggest to me that perhaps the new lads weren't so down with the fusion sound as their predecessors were. Still, it's not bad symphonic, and the band were unfailingly forward-looking, occasionally to a surprising extent - the fast-paced section towards the end of Remembering the Future reminds me of the sort of sonic territory Talking Heads would eventually explore on Remain In Light. Not their best - that remains their debut, Glory of the Inner Force - but as decent a swan song as could be expected under the circumstances and it just about keeps up the decent-but-not-exceptional standard that Finch had maintained across their career.
Warthur | 3/5 |
