Best Album to Establish a Band's Cohesive Sound 

The Feeler, Ghostfinger

2005's These Colors Run was a hell of an album to follow, but its manic genre-jumping didn't lend it cohesion. With the release of this year's The Feeler, Ghostfinger's mustachioed mastermind Richie Kirkpatrick has honed in on a sound he's sticking with, and it falls somewhere between Gram Parsons, the Rolling Stones and Ray Stevens. Irreverence and absurdity have long been a substantial part of Kirkpatrick's repertoire, but with The Feeler Ghostfinger is finally settling into consistency—as well as genuinely impressive instrumentation that rewards multiple listens. —D.
