There are some rather striking similarities. I don't know music structure, but it passes the ear test.

Suffer Never was in open "D" , this one appears to be in "E" and the opening is exactly the same structure ( but not as complex) - still a good sound and could be a winner for FB's lawyers / royalties haha

FB lawyers! I truly hope not! Neither Neil or Tim have been that greedy or small minded in the past and its not as if these guy have sampled it without credit. They might have been inspired by it, the similarity might be a coincidence. The day the Finn become vexatious litigants is the day I stop listening.

Digital Album Releases

OKAlrightAHuhOhYeah ·
I'm an American. I'm also a 20-something, so I no longer have CD players (i never thought the day would come). So I pretty much buy all my music digitally, now. I found Tim's debut, I found big canoe, the view, say it is so, imaginary kingdom, even a couple others. Any word/reason/other on why his s/t album hasn't been released digitally yet? That's the one i'm dying to obtain. But it seems to be the only one not on any digital music retailer. Makes me sad.

Re: Neil collaborating with Todd Rundgren

Very interested in hearing what Neil/Todd come up with together. Looks like Todd has album projects where he collaborates with established artists on one song each. Sounds like Neil isn't sleep much these days with so many projects on the table.

Yes, that album was Skylarking. Andy about came to blows over Todd's production at the time, but has since admitted that Todd was right, and loves the way it turned out.

Re: Neil collaborating with Todd Rundgren

Above the Kitchen ·
Now I love Todd's work, but he has a checkered past when it comes to collaboration. Andy Partridge had a pissing match on Twitter regarding Todd's production work on an XTC album. I've read that Todd tends to impose his will and wizardry on those acts he's produced. With that being said, Neil's More Than One of You on his latest has that Todd feeling. I'm curious. If they can connect musically on equal footing, I'm hopeful. I would be interested to hear what they concoct.

I have 2 tickets for sale for Neil Finn for the Bristol Colston Hall show on Saturday 26th April (less than 3 weeks away). Some friends aren't able to go now and I'd hate for them to go to waste. Anyone here need any tickets? They're stalls seats D9-D10, £32.50 per ticket (face value). I'm happy to split the tickets if necessary.

Neil collaborating with Todd Rundgren

The Ligature ·
Last week Todd Rundgren was interviewed on WXRV in Boston about a song he loves. Todd chose "Don't Dream It's Over", and talked about why he loves the song. Interestingly, he also reveals that he has recently been in contact with Neil Finn and they have a collaboration "in the works". Todd's current album pairs him with other artists, and he's working on an additional collaborative album. Hear the interview: http://wrsi.com/riversound-cafe/todd-rundgren/ ...

How would you like to see Crowded House perform a Woodface 30th Anniversary tour in 2021 to promote a Woodface box set? For anyone interested, I wrote up the full details of my concept here , and even created some basic concept cover art for the box.

Re: Woodface: 30th Anniversary Box Set

Secret God (Stew) ·
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...

DDIO is a hard song to sing, For me, it involved a lot of switching between chest and head registers. I remember an Aus Idol contestant singing quite a nice reggae version of "Now We're Getting Somewhere". I remember the face but not the name and can't seem to find the clip anywhere.

Re: Paul McCartney talks Neil Finn

amjfrenz ·
I am not so sure that I would recommend to Neil that he work with Paul should the offer come his way. I recently read the book "Man on the Run". Excellent read btw. It is basically Paul through the 70's and he does not come across well in the book. Not that the book was meant to purposely make Paul look bad as it appears to be based on accounts of not only Paul but people who knew or worked closely with him. He does come across as a bit domineering and difficult to work with. After reading...

Re: Paul McCartney talks Neil Finn

saturdaysun ·
I heard, also, that he is difficult to work with and doesn't accept criticism well, but I believe that if the opportunity were to arise, Neil would be fully equipped to make the decision whether or not to work with him...and, who know? Perhaps, it already has and they both agreed that it wouldn't be a good idea.

In my opinion, since the break up of the Beatles, NF's beatle-esque songs have been better than PMs beatle-esque songs. If that makes sense.. Like FSIOD, NTGYTYA etc..

Re: Paul McCartney talks Neil Finn

Sugar Mouse ·
To me, Paul doesn't have the quality control Neil has. Paul continues to write incredible songs (see his fabulous recent album "New"), but can also write some clunkers. Neil seems to have a higher percentage of elite level songs. I suspect Neil has a stricter "internal critic" or has others (Tim, Sharon, Liam etc) who help him know when a song "has it" and when it still needs work.

Re: Paul McCartney talks Neil Finn

amjfrenz ·
To be honest, I suspect that Neil may share some of the traits that I described in Paul. I sure Nick can tell some stories about Neil that may not be complimentary, particularly with the first maybe 2 or 3 albums. He did have a blow-out with Mitchell Froom and that may have been because he wasn't getting his way. So, putting two people like that together may not be a good idea. With "Out of Silence", I not sure that anyone was really there to tell Neil that "this is crap", not that I think...
