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.
