ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
UK reviewer David Kidman says of Finest Kind's latest release:
"For Honour & For Gain is a further example of everything they do so enviably well: a professionally-planned and keenly-presented hour-long menu of 18 tracks representing folk eclecticism at its best (I ought to say of the finest kind!), all couched in unstintingly superb singing (solo and ensemble alike) with plenty of close-harmonies to die for...
...Simply, their seriously accomplished musicianship carries with it both the ring of authenticity and an essential, inherent spontaneity, qualities which for me guarantee For Honour & For Gain a place in the top ten of 2010’s folk album releases..."

Paul Magnussen

Finest harmony
As usual with Finest Kind, the songs are from various sources; and as usual, for my money, the best are the a cappella folk songs. In particular, the first track is so amazingly beautiful that I sat stunned for a minute after it had finished. No one can touch Finest Kind on this stuff.

Want to know how they do it? Listen to John Barleycorn Deconstructed.

And who knew there was such as thing as a hovercraft shanty?

The total time is 60'29".

Amazing musicians
Absolutely stunning musicianship. Lovely balance and blend, expressive singing, gorgeous and interesting music. Many of the songs on this album are sad, I wish more of them were happy, but I guess much famous folk music is sad. Some songs though are quite witty and funny. Will be buying more of their music.
