I LOVE 'All I Ask' one of my favorites.
Back in the day I listened to Woodface more than I'd ever listened to any album. I knew every song, every lyric, pretty much every second of sound on the album; and to me it was (and still is) perfection. I wouldn't change anything. That would be like trying to change history (and we all know how that worked out for Marty McFly in BTF2).
IMO 'Tall Trees' and 'Fame Is' are the weak points in the album, still they are stronger than weak points in most albums.
For me the weakest point of any Crowded House album is 'Even If'... a song that still makes me wonder 'what the hell were they thinking?'.
Well, we are on pretty unsolid ground there, according to our tastes here. I was once thinking that on Finn album we have even 3 really (sorry for expression) ugly songs - Kiss the road of Rarotonga, Nihwai and Buletts in my Hairdo. To me songs without any beauty, and sense. Rough but not in the way of Black and White Boy, or Inside Out or Tall Tree. They just shouldnt see the light of the day, by me. But, the other day, I look into thread about Kiss the road.., and aparently most of the voters like it! What, where, why, what...? But, there is... To me, Even if could have been out of Intriguer, cause there been much much better songs from that era which stayed out. But, far from Neils worst.. just name some - Thats what I call love, Kill Eye, Fame is, Hole in the ice, Strangest Friends, All Gods Children ofcourse etc... Not to mention at least 5-6 songs from Pajama Club and what I am affraid most (trying not to be negative), will be much more of that on some new father-son collaboration. But, who knows? Hope and praying I am wrong...
