Time on Earth Vinyl release missing?

williamsdb ·
Hi Any idea why "Time on Earth" vinyl is missing from the the pre-order page? https://store.universalmusic.com/crowdedhouse/ It's not available as a stand alone nor is it in the bundle but it is available for pre-order on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2d1wR32 Is this a mistake or have Amazon jumped the gun?

Manufacturing delays apparently. Issue with the master, perhaps?

Does anyone know why in the 2007-2010 Crowded House Reunion, Peter Jones did not return when Finn, Seymor and Hart did? Did he choose to not return or was he not asked back?

Most Underrated Crowded House Songs

The Pineapple Head ·
Been a few of these posts but none of them come from anywhere later than post Time On Earth. In your opinion which Crowded House songs do not get enough praise or recognition? For me it's: Anyone Can Tell, Pineapple Head, As Sure As I Am, Even A Child and Italian Plastic.

Hi Pineapple Head - this thread touches on that: https://www.frenzforum.com/top...ed-house-peter-jones Gryphon mentions in the thread that he didn't think the guys considered him when they got back together as they really wanted a new fresh face in the lineup. But at the same time, Peter did have a new career as a secondary school teacher by then also. Really sad that he passed away so young...

"Nobody wants to" comes to mind immediately for me. I think it's a beautiful little gem. I also love "In the Lowlands", both musically and lyrically. There's so much going on in this song. I agree with you on Pinenapple Head being underrated. It seems a silly little singalong song at first, but it's so well crafted.

In no particular order: Archer's Arrow, Never Be the Same, English Trees, Amsterdam and, yes, Even a Child as stated previously So many terrific ones to choose... hard to narrow down

For those that haven't read it, our beloved Axver attempted to rank EVERY A-side Crowded House song from the 6 albums, Afterglow and Recurring Dream Best of: https://rateyourmusic.com/list...wded-house-ranked/1/ It motivated me to make one of my own. Whilst it seems pointless, overly technical and subject to constant change, it was actually a very fun journey to go on. It really got me thinking about what I do and don't love about every song and deepened my appreciation of their entire...

Sure! This would almost warrant a separate thread, because it's always a fun conversation starter. Some people are bewildered that their favourite song ranks so low, others are happy that somebody else shares an obscure favourite of theirs, but it always makes for spirited discussion.

It's pretty painstaking and time-consuming. To start out, I just positioned them roughly on the list depending on how much I like them. Then I worked through the list head-to-head (1st vs 2nd, 2nd vs 3rd etc) and whenever I preferred the lower song, it would keep moving up until it 'lost'. I found the more different two songs are, the harder they are to compare. Think about Now We're Getting Somewhere and Help Is Coming. I love both of them but the sound, atmosphere and mood are polar...

All so subjective but Fall at your feet at 51 is.... Controversial! My underated tune is always Tombstone. It starts with the greatest lyrics of any song. In fact the sequence Can't carry on => I walk away => Tombstone is just a perfect sequence.

That's my favourite stretch of the album. What makes it all the more curious is that Tombstone is an extremely crowd-friendly, singalong type of song. I can understand that atmospheric, moody masterpieces like Catherine Wheels and Kare Kare are not built for radio. But Tombstone? It could easily be an all-time classic pop-rock song in a parallel universe. I mean it just oozes 'mega-hit'. Looking at the track listing, those gems towards the back of the album may have simply been victims of...

Personally if it makes any sense whatsover, I like the songs on 'Crowded House' but not the album. For me all the songs blur into one and I can't tell them apart. Not sure if anyone else has this problem or has an album that makes them feel the same way.
