I can't really think of TOE as a CH album because, well, it isn't. All bar four songs were recorded by Neil as a solo album, which was only badged as a CH record when he decided - post recording but pre-release - to reform the band. His choices were either to release the album but abandon it promo-wise, or call it a CH album and persuade the band to tour it.

But a CH album it ain't.

By that addage , Now We're getting Somewhere , Weather With You , and There Goes God aren't Crowded House songs. There are others too . Time On Earth features 2 of the origional 3 band members on every song , which is more than can be said for other albums in their catalogue. TOE had a confused begining in terms of identity, but so did the debut album and woodface by all accounts.

In response to the intitial poster on this thread  - Rest assured there are thousands who love Crowded House now as they did then . I'm one of them . They are my favourite band currently in existence , and i think Intriguer is a masterpiece - criminally underrated.

We haven't seen the last of them - Neil has said as much , and I can't wait for the next time they work together.

    All times London, UK.
