Reply to "Next Exit, what does everyone think of the song?"

I guess I would drop "Never Ceases to Amaze Me" and "Lost for Words" and replace them with "Next Exit" and "Remember When" (both obviously the later recordings not the Luton versions). For me, the album's momentum just hits a brick wall when you get to NCTAM and LFW, which is a shame because I think "Small World" is one of the best Enz songs.

Here's what I did to make the album more enjoyable for my tastes:

  1. Haul Away 
  2. Dirty Creature
  3. Giant Heartbeat
  4. Small World
  5. Hello Sandy Allen
  6. Next Exit
  7. Make Sense of It
  8. Take A Walk
  9. Pioneer
  10. Six Months in a Leaky Boat
  11. Log Cabin Fever
  12. Remember When

I'm definitely more into early Enz. For me, the best albums are Second Thoughts and Dizrythmia. Time & Tide is certainly a late career high point (compared to Corroboree and Conflicting Emotions), but I don't think its flawless or the band's best work.

And I'm not saying "Next Exit" should be on the greatest hits or anything. I just think it's a catchy little pop tune with a great Neil harmony that I would rather hear over "Never Ceases to Amaze Me" any day.
