"Love is All that Remains" and "Time On Earth" go hand in hand as Neil solo songs. They were both written around the same time and debuted together during a webcast promoting the One All release. Just because Neil liked the phrase "Time on Earth" and used it as an album title doesn't mean the song is right for Crowded House.
It's an interesting question what Neil will do with the songs that come to him now, that don't really "fit" the Crowded House context. Save 'em up for a future solo album? Try to adapt them to fit the CH context?
And then of course the band has stretched, has to an extent branched out, rhythmically and texturally. It will be a challenge to consolidate the musical gains they've made as a performing unit over these past two tours, while still retaining the band's unique identity and focus.
Hm. I feel like I had a point back when I started typing that. Oh well - that'll have to do!
