I haven’t really thought about it a lot, but if I had to pick the greatest album of the year so far, I think I would choose Craig Finn’s new album We All Want The Same Things. I did already share the God In Chicago video a while back, but needed to quickly praise this again, because it’s such a special record and half of these songs could also be candidates for the song of the year award. The songs God In Chicago, Rescue Blues, Be Honest go above any kind of rating scale I can set up. I really enjoyed the earlier solo albums too, but maybe I still felt that they didn’t completely reach the level of The Hold Steady. I don’t have any doubts anymore. This is just as brilliant as The Hold Steady if not more. Craig Finn is a magnificent songwriter and We All Want The Same Things is a spectacular album.
