New Fiery Furnaces

We were a little slow picking up on this album, as we were never really massive fans of this band who have done well to establish themselves as stalwarts of the indie-rock scene. Yet, there is something about the Fiery Furnaces' new album I'm Going Away that's beguilingly charming and accesible -- even more so than previous efforts. It's an intangible catchiness that suggests listening to the record just one more time. While critically, it hasn't reached the heights achieved by some of their previous works, I'm Going Away stands as another solid entry into the band's time-tested catalog. Worth picking up for old and new fans alike.
