You make some good points Camus (aside from liking "Show Yourself"). Some people claim they can really hear "the conversation" on this album between various players but personally I don't think Tim fully realized that idea. I think what we've got here is a Tim Finn album with some great musicians on it. But it's basically just acoustic TF songs with some violin solos.
I think Eddie's piano parts do a great job of flushing out the songs and supporting the vocal melodies but none of the songs really feature the piano. Certainly not in any way that shows off Eddie's talents. Eddie did co-produce the album though, so perhaps we can hear his influence on the overall production and arrangements in addition to his piano parts.
I hadn't thought about "More Fool Me" too much but I agree that perhaps the song does lose some dignity. I am also a bit tired of Tim's songs about Judd but I gave him a pass on this album because he worked with so many other Enz members. Perhaps I should reconsider that stance. I mean really, you'd think mature adults would have either settled their differences by now or let them go.
All that aside, however, I do love this album and think it's way better than IK and I too loved Say It Is So.
