Black Francis

Blue Finger

(Cooking Vinyl).

What's in a name? Attitude. Under the Black Francis moniker, Frank Black returns with a gritty performance reminiscent of his earliest Pixies days. Angular guitars thrash against embattled basses, angry drums, spacey harmonies and creepy organ fills, backed by edge-of-scream vocals that cover Black's typical array of off-kilter subjects. — Glenn BurnSilver
