Before and After is early 90s Tim. There are a few trite moments and simple rhymes, but it covers a lot of good ground and includes "Persuasion", co-penned by Richard Thompson (middle 8 by Neil); one of his better singles imho. Say it is So was done with Wilco I understand, around 2000. It's got some grunge moments and has "Death of a Popular Song", which I still enjoy. I saw Tim on that tour and it was my first Finn show. I'm hardly an expert, and actually those are the only Tim I have. But...

Tim Finn and Before & After are good starting points for Tim’s discography.

This surprised me so I tried to look into it...the drummer on Say It Is So is Ken Coomer, Wilco's first (but not current) drummer. That was the only Wilco connection I could find.

Before & After is definitely a great album. My personal favourite Tim record is his self-titled album. Very underrated and deserved a lot more attention than it got at the time. Not Even Close is a beautiful song.

I agree with the others that Tim Finn is great, as is Before and After. Imaginary Kingdom is a strong album too. If you're not necessarily wanting to be completest to begin with, how about the anthology? While some of the songs are reworked (and CH/Enz), there's something of a selection across his solo albums save the most recent one (if memory serves), so that might give you a taste and help determine if there's an era that you like, since they're all quite different. Or, if you're a...

Completely agree with this. Tim’s albums are quite eclectic based on the era they were produced. I love many of the songs on Big Canoe but the production... well... is an acquired taste! I feel the same about Escapade. I would also either start at the beginning and make your way through them all or start with the Anthology and explore the albums based on the songs that most take your fancy.

Feeding the Gods is one of my favorite albums of all time. But you have to prepared to rock out because it's a very energetic romp. After that, Say It Is So is my next favorite. Those two albums make a great one-two punch from the early aughts.

FTG is one of those “under different circumstances this would have been a big hit” albums, I think. And for all the great TF tracks on it, I still think Incognito is probably the highlight.

Although I don't listen to TF albums anymore, the ones I played the most were Escapade, Tim Finn and Before & After. I found Say It Is So to be unlistenable.

Lost Fifth Album

The Pineapple Head ·
What's everyone's thoughts on the 'Lost Fifth' album of Crowded House which would have been released some time after 1994. Has anyone made their own version using rarities? Do you have an order? Which tracks would be the singles? I'd love to find out!

Well, if it is Crowded House I would say there would not be a lot of talk about it. I can't see any reason why it would not be, its been a while since the last two now, and they were very laid back records, I definitely think that because that 5th album never got made the band are keen to make something to revive the groups musical direction, and the reissues would be a good reason for that too. Neil and Liams solo albums were not being recorded till much recently so... Yes I would say it is...

Herbalife, you cant even imagine how I wish you are wright! Not only that to me Neil is his best in whats hes done with CH - later listenings of Noncence of course and Loose Tounge from CH Deluxes proved to me once more how much better even same songs sounds with CH than in solo projects , but also they (CH members) except Matt are or allmost in their 60s, so if we are looking at two solo albums (one of them with Liam) and one project with Tim after, when the next CH will be? In their near...

I think the Liam and Neil album will be very good. But a new Crowded House album would be even better, their best in a long time, or Neil Finns best anyway. And if they do a new album I would say it would be Mark and Neil and the other two perhaps not until they do some shows. They would have no problem using session musicians. It wouldn't matter that much. They would not be leaving it to far into the future I don't think, I think because of the re-releases and reunion shows they probably...

Monsieur Nick ·
To me (and with plenty of hindsight), Crowded House split up probably for a couple of reasons; 1. Neil had a young family back then, probably was tired of travelling and being away from them for long periods and his oldest friend had left. 2. At that stage had been in bands for approaching 20 years and was worn down by the routine of write, record, promote and tour. 3. Wanted to change almost for the sake of change. Try whistling this was/is a fabulous record. If you remember in those days...

I agree that they could have made an amazing album based on these. I've made it a playlist and listen to it often. Still don't think it is better than Together Alone, but a very solid base. We've been promised two albums this year so much, that I will be very disappointed if things are delayed. It would seem that one needs to come soon, it would be odd to have them come out close together and then try to promote both. I have high hopes for the Neil/Liam one, I enjoy much of Liam's work,...

I think between the songs written for Finn, Try Whistling This and the songs that have appeared on Afterglow / Afterglow deluxe, c1994 to 1996 was a purple patch. Id be curious to know what Neil thinks but sure I remember him saying that the Afterglow 2nd CD might be his Crowded House favourite (even if he doesn't do favourites)! I wonder if the next record will be a scrap book / compilation of sorts that collect the best of the new songs written in the last 2 or 3 years - solo songs and...

Re: New Album

I feel the opposite. Neil's last few records, PJ Club and Dizzy Heights, have been dominated by his family. He's been playing with them in some capacity several years now, including his touring bands, so I'd say it's time for a change, time to get out of the family bubble and welcome outside collaborators again. In terms of musicians on his records he hasn't done major outside collaboration with non-family members since The Sun Came Out in 2009. Obviously the album with Liam is a family...

The fact Neil said at the Sydney concerts "No - beginning of a new era" when someone yelled out "End of an era" and some odd messages about recording says a lot to me. Who could predict the reissues coming out? Had someone not demanded it? In which it was given away early last year? And then the message was removed because of record label "concentration", as always. I find it interesting someone thinks their is a Crowded House album already recorded, and if Neil does think that the second...

It's been 38 months since the last release of all new Neil Finn material. 41 months is the record (from One Nil to Everyone Is Here). Average wait time between Neil Finn albums is 30 months. So we must be getting really close to something!

Surely the Liam and Neil record will be first. That is what its shown has been worked on so far by video. I am betting a Crowded House album comes before a Neil Finn solo album, since he did one not so long ago. I'm no psychic, but I am telepathic.

Re: New Album

Really, there is no new Crowded House album . Any time he's been asked about it in the last few years, even during their Encore shows, Neil said something like "the band's up on blocks in the garage," as in not broken up but in storage for now. On the other hand he HAS talked about an album with Liam, and vaguely about a solo-ish album. All available information says there is no Crowded House album recorded or in the works, can we put that to bed? My theory is that the non-Liam album has...

Maybe... But chances if their is a Crowded House album it would not be mentioned I don't think. You believe everything you read? Surely not. I read in the Christchurch Press Neil doesn't believe in an afterlife. Well how come he sings about God and names of real demons?? Does he mean a new life? Or another different life after this one? Or reincarnation? The questions are simply endless...and on they will go. And the earth could be flat too! I was only talking about it last night to some...

The only Crowded House album I think that will be released is the anniversary show from last year. I think Neil will be quite happy to play live with Crowded House much like he does with Split Enz but I don't really think there will be a new Crowded House album. i hope there will be a new record in the autumn - perhaps the one with Liam (assuming it is convenient with Liam and family) but more likely the solo one which utilises songs recorded with Mick Fleetwood last year. It isn't...

You can never tell what will really happen. But my instinct (har har) is that a new Crowded House album is sooner. I don't see why Neil would want to do another solo album right away (his own one) - because he already has just done a fairly carefully crafted one. I feel his interests is another Crowded House album after the Liam Finn album he is joining in on (which will be very interested). And yes, it has been 7 years since the last album, so there must be some Crowded House music laying...

Why would they re-release their albums and do live shows? IT WAS THEIR 30TH ANNIVERSARY. You're spouting a lot of hopeful speculation that is flatly contradicted by information we already have. Nothing else to say really. Your fantasy sounds nice, but that's all it is.

I am fairly certain that Neil has mentioned an album with Liam, a solo album, and some sort of project with Tim as things he has been working on/thinking about. Absolutely no mention of Crowded House. Sorry Herbalife, I agree with Slowpogo.

I think we can be pretty sure that there is no new Crowded House album in the pipeline (as much as I would love one). The album Neil was referring to recording in his Twitter with the bubble football was definitely not Crowded House. The tweet coincided with when we know Mick Fleetwood was staying with him. Mick spoke a bit about staying with Neil and drumming on some songs at a Meet and Greet session before one of his gigs. He mentioned he was going back to do some more recording after his...

Oh come on! No one called you a rat and I don't think anyone thinks you're a rat! All we've done is point out that what Neil has said and what you believe don't coincide. I for one am totally willing to eat my words if the next Neil Finn release is a new Crowded House album. But it's not like Neil has a history of throwing surprises out of left field. If he was working on new Crowded House material, I am fairly sure we would have at least a hint about it.
