Liam Finn, 'FOMO' (Yep Roc)

7
FOMO
Critical Mass
Release Date: June 21, 2011
Label: Yep Roc

by Jon Young

The musical spitting ?image of his dad Neil Finn (Crowded House, Split Enz), Liam blends sophisticated melodies and wistful vocals with masterful authority. Though he plays and sings everything himself, his second solo album lacks the annoying sterility of some one-man efforts -- the lad scuffs up his pretty tunes with crashing drums and belching synths, even erupting in punkish bellowing on "The Struggle." Yet for all his attempts at shagginess, the breathtaking "Cold Feet" proves Finn remains a tidy pop kid at heart.
