All so subjective but Fall at your feet at 51 is.... Controversial!
My underated tune is always Tombstone. It starts with the greatest lyrics of any song. In fact the sequence Can't carry on => I walk away => Tombstone is just a perfect sequence.
That's my favourite stretch of the album. What makes it all the more curious is that Tombstone is an extremely crowd-friendly, singalong type of song. I can understand that atmospheric, moody masterpieces like Catherine Wheels and Kare Kare are not built for radio. But Tombstone? It could easily be an all-time classic pop-rock song in a parallel universe. I mean it just oozes 'mega-hit'.
Looking at the track listing, those gems towards the back of the album may have simply been victims of the sheer number of hits that precede them. When you have Mean to Me, World Where You Live, Now We're Getting Somewhere, Don't Dream It's Over and Something So Strong within the first 6 tracks, the others will be lost in the shuffle. All 5 of those songs were released as singles and it was probably too difficult to get any others on to the airwaves with so much already going out there.
Personally if it makes any sense whatsover, I like the songs on 'Crowded House' but not the album. For me all the songs blur into one and I can't tell them apart. Not sure if anyone else has this problem or has an album that makes them feel the same way.
