Another essential "nu-metal" album spotted! Now I admit my definition for nu-metal differs a bit than others may commonly classify. Here you have an alternative rock album than manages to skate along the metal genre w/o relying heavily on the guitar distortions that're more common in the hard rock genre w/ accompanied lyrics that sound occasionally too melodramatic (my understanding of nu-metal). What makes this "essential" nu-metal is how the alternative rock relies on differing genres to make a unique sound, amongst the other nu-metal acts, as well as lyrics that sound off w/ more creativity & character. Personally, other bands that fit this category include Mad At Gravity, Aroma, Sloth, Cold, and Smile Empty Soul.

Definitely not as good as their stuff prior to the record contract. In The Name of Progress does show Fingertight's range of music, from the piano driven Magical to their hardest with Surface.
After they split with their record, they released two more songs, which I think are more on par with their originals. They still have those song streaming on myspace.com/fingertight.
They lost something in transition from being a local band to signing a deal, but In The Name of Progress is still a solid album.
