Split Enz (and Crowded House) Reviewed

AphoristicGraham ·
Hello, I'm a New Zealander, and have been a fan of the Finn brothers since my teens. As a hobby I've been working on a personal music review website, and I've just covered Split Enz: https://albumreviews.blog/reviews/split-enz/ I haven't seen many reviews of Split Enz's entire discography (although I haven't covered the live releases, Odds and Enz, or the Luton Tapes) in one place, so I thought that people might be interested. Let me know if I have any factual errors. I also covered Crowded...

Hi, does anyone know if any members of Crowded House or Split Enz made cameos on TV shows at any point? Just curious.

Re: I've written a Crowded House Musical. Any ideas how I could get this to Neil please?

LIONEL ·
Thanks both for your replies. I have sent a copy to Neil's management. Wish me luck! Please see below the synopsis. Fairly simple but I found it very emotional to write so hopefully that will come through, and of course, packed with fabulous Neil Finn/Crowded House songs. I really enjoyed writing it. It would be unbelievably inspiring to be able to put it on somewhere and that's my aim for the next step in the script's life as it were. Again, here's hoping....Thanks again, Lionel Synopsis...

It's funny I wasn't that impressed when Don't Dream it's over came out. I had been a big fan of Neil's previous band Split Enz and really liked the idea of having two different song writers Neil and his brother Tim. So Crowded House seemed like a Neil Finn solo band and then Don't Dream its over was a hit in the US, I think I felt "well why didn't Split Enz make it in the US?" I think to an extent I've always compared Tim and Neil and kind of supported Tim, so I liked Woodface that Tim was...

Hi Kita, Welcome to the forum, All frenz are welcome here, no matter how new. I know what you mean by Neil's songs making you shiver, we've all been there when the music speaks. However, that song wasn't the one that first had that effect on me, in fact DDIO, although now a big radio hit in the UK, wasn't originally a very successful song over here. I grew to love Finn music during the later Woodface era (the 1990's) and the first song to cause a shiver was Fall at your feet, I find the...

Very intriguing. Lionel, just out of curiosity, what experience do you have with writing and producing musicals? There must be a ton of work involved in making something like this happen. The Poor Boy musical used a lot of Tim Finn songs and Tim was very involved in the process of crafting the story and selecting the songs. It was lead by playwright Matt Cameron, who had previously written a number of award winning Australian plays and was also involved in creating and writing for several...

Hi there, I'm afraid I don't have the level of experience to which you refer. This is the first musical I've written. I've experience in writing plays, books and other materials, and performed in plays and in bands etc but musicals had not inspired me before. But I think it must have been the depth of Neil's/Crowded House's songs that got me started. I'm not sure of my original inspiriation exactly but I know that was at the heart of it. Once I started I just couldn't stop. It completely...

In my opinion a Crowded House musical or stage performance could only be a comedy, and never really serious. An idea I have is, ACDC end up opening for Crowded House because they did make their 5th album and a 6th and 7th and they outsold ACDC and Michael Jackson.....and of course, then Jesus came back without any computer enhancement technology (laughing out loud...)

Re: Why no "She's Not There" on TOLM Deluxe Edition?

"NOW is something is not good enough to release when apparently it was good enough back then". I don't think this is what anyone has said. There is a bonus disc for each album, containing mostly never before heard writing, demos, home recordings, alternate takes. The aim for these sets was NEVER to round up all the stray tracks that appeared on CD singles, soundtracks etc. I'm amazed at the stunning opportunity fans now have to trace the development of songs from composing demos and early...

Re: Why no "She's Not There" on TOLM Deluxe Edition?

Paināporo ·
I love "She's Not There" and it's a bit annoying that it appears to be the only CH studio track not included in the deluxe editions. However, it's also the only cover song CH has ever recorded in the studio so I can see how that might have resulted in its exclusion. But man, I think it's a great recording and totally fits the ToLM vibe better than any other non-album track in the CH catalog. It's really not that hard of a song to track down. The Other Enz CD is on Amazon for $27.

Re: Am I the only one who loves 2007-2010 Crowded House?

Jeremy Loder ·
As great a singer and talent as Mark is, that wouldn't have worked. Hessie was gone so Nick would've been the only original member left. You can't have a CH without Neil. On a side note, I love See Ya Round but find it hard to consider it an Enz album. It has no original band members. And Split Enz without Tim is as wrong as CH without Neil.

Thanks Hawk57 and Steve for having a listen, glad your digging it! Plans for the future, we're recording two more songs in April then bundling them with They Love You and Garden Varieties and releasing as an EP, we're also going to make a short youtube series in which we pair acoustic recordings of some newer songs with footage shot at our drummer's new place. As for the name, it was just one of those things i thought up when half asleep, you know when the synapses are firing different ways...

Good to hear there's more on the way! I thought I might have heard a touch of REM influence in Garden Varieties but I wasn't sure if it was just because of your name. Also I could understand the lyrics which isn't like REM at all

September 1986 - September 2016...

BRANDO BRANDT ·
I'm very curious as to what might have delayed the 'official' announcement around the upcoming releases, as well as the logic behind a September release date. Don't Dream It's Over was released in Oct. 86' and aside from Now We're Getting Somewhere having been released in Sept. 86', I don't really see the connection between the dates. I'm still hopeful that with the official announcement, we'll get a surprise 2016-2017 Crowded House Tour. Maybe that's why Management and the band are being so...

Release date on Amazon in the US is not until November 18 for the vinyl. No mention yet of the CD's. I think I'm going to wait and see if it is possible to just purchase the bonus tracks in download form at some point. I have no real desire to repurchase CD's of albums I already own, especially when I hardly ever listen to CD's any more.

I think the main reason to remaster any album of that era is, analog-to-digital conversion is vastly better than it was 20-30 years ago. All other things being equal, they will sound better for that reason. But I share your worry that all other things will likely not be equal..

I tend towards the assumption that there's nothing major behind announcement delays. That is, there's nothing for us to worry over/get excited about. It's probably just making sure that everything is in place promotion-wise before hitting the Go button. But it's the "newly mastered" bit that worries me. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the mastering on the first three albums - in fact, it's pretty much as good as one could want IMO. Together Alone could use a little less compression but...

Re: Woodface: 30th Anniversary Box Set

A fair point about buying another version of Woodface so soon after the reissue. But in this day and age of boxed sets being released for classic albums I think it's more than justified. It also would be half a decade later. Personally I would have liked these deluxe versions to be staggered for release at the 30th anniversary of each album. It would have created more of a sense of event for each one. And by 2021 a Woodface boxed set would have been a much easier sell. Having said that I'm...

Time on Earth , to me, isn't a Crowded House album. Don't get me wrong, I have Crowded House listed as the 'artist' in the album's FLAC files.
