ABSOLUTExclusive: Far From Finished

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (08/25/10)
Far From Finished may be known for their street punk style, but their new album, ironically titled Forgettable, will turn a lot of heads. While their roots are still planted in the punk rock scene, their latest effort is more mature and eclectic. Head over to the band's AP.net profile to hear what I mean. The album comes out August 31st via Old Shoe Records. Don't forget to enter our contest to win a roundtrip to their release show in Boston on 9/4.

Not a big street punk kind of guy but there are some elements to this album that would make it so not street punk, in a very good way. Pretty ambitious for a punk, or any genre of band for that matter. Way to go boys - guess Boston has more to offer than just song about drinking and the unions.

Complete 180 from previous work. It's taking me some getting used to because I loved their last album. Could use a few more "upbeat" and "faster" tunes, but anyone expecting a record like their past efforts is going to be in for a big surprise.

This. But I definitely dig what they've laid out there! "Say Something" is the fucking jam.

I recently got into this band (this year) and since then have became a huge fan. When I stopped by their merch table at Warped Tour, they showed me early copies of their new album which I had no idea was even coming out so it's not like I had long-awaited anticipations for this album but I had no idea they were just gonna take a very experimental approach. I was surprised when I heard it. It definitely does remind me of Warning by Green Day and is not a bad album. However, it completely lacks everything I love about Far From Finished and is definitely a Forgettable album for me.

I still think more people should be listening to this band though. There's not enough true punk rock these days and I'd expect to see more appreciation for it.

When the first song started, I could only think of Straylight Run.
