The Take Off and Landing of Everything

Goldfinger will always sound like Goldfinger, that’s largely due to John Feldman’s unique voice and partly because these dudes have been playing the same style forever now. On the band’s new album the main difference between what they’ve done in the past is lyrical meaning. Feldman covers conservatives, an imprisoned animal rights activist, fatherhood, and suicide. Not exactly trademark for a band that had a hit by covering “99 Luft Balloons.” This isn’t a necessary record to add to your collection but it’s both fun and artistically responsible something that gets Goldfinger some serious kudos. Goldfinger is one of those bands that can be around forever…I wouldn’t be surprised if this was their last album but I wouldn’t be surprised to see them make ten more either. “Hello Destiny…” is another good album from Goldfinger in a catalog of competent material.
