Where to start?

The Pineapple Head ·
I'm slightly unsure where to start with Tim's solo work. I can't seem to find a general consensus of 'best' album/s. What do you guys think I should get first?

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.
