Did I mention this is my 20th year of compiling at least a top ten list? I wasn't sure if that makes this year or next the 20th anniversary, since the list was first conceived in 1996. I also thought about burning a 20th anniversary CD and sending it to my three or four fans. I think they all still own CD players.
Both of Finn's solo albums can boast 11th-place finishes, which is about as satisfying as finishing 5th in the CFP standings (sorry Iowa).
I'm going to pair Faith in the Future with Pipeworks Citra, because in both cases, the title is a bit deceptive. Citra (aka Citra Ninja) packs a punch that belies its sunny name, while Faith dabbles in hopefulness, but the overall tone is far from bright and cheery.
