Listened to Intriguer this morning while working. First time in a while. Some of it sounded forced or tired, but there were a few good "feels" still. While it's not as complete a work as TOE, it's still called "Crowded House", so it deserves to be in the mix.
I have a hard time listening to TOE start to finish, there's always an interruption or I'll stop along the way and end up not finishing it. A lot of gems though, that's for sure.
I presume most folk here try to listen to Some Finn music every day. Heh. I chuckle remembering how much I used to always listen to the Beatles. I found an original Let it Be LP and spin that every now and then because it's not as familiar (Dig it). For the most part, I've lost interest in the fab four. But it was listening to them that prompted a vendor to lend me CH material to investigate, so I'll always be grateful for that.
CH's return was like Santa Claus. You know inside it's not really what you've always heard, but you play along because of the gifts freely bestowed.
