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?

The Mystery of Peter Jones

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?

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...

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.

"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.

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.

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.

Re: Most Underrated Crowded House Songs

Cradle2Grave ·
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.

Great bargain on Intriguer. Some terrific tracks on the bonus. All of them do, really, though the first three have mostly demo/live versions of the album tracks, as opposed to "new" songs (outtakes). If you are a massive Crowdie, you won't be disappointed. Some of the real audiophiles on the board say the remastering of the original albums appealed to them; I can't tell much difference, as I mostly listen in my somewhat noisy truck, but I have enjoyed the bonus discs immensely. If the price...

If you could pick one Finn song to hear again for the first time, which would you chose?

The Pineapple Head ·
Let's pretend you could "forget" all of a Finn song and be able to listen to it for the first time again, which would you pick? So you have no idea of what to expect. I'd pick I Feel Possessed. I'd love to be able to hear the chorus again without knowing what will happen.

I would choose Four Seasons in One Day. I literally fell off my chair the first time I heard that song, when it got to the bridge. The sound was so unexpectedly lovely that it knocked me off my desk chair onto the floor. *laughs* I would love to be able to experience that again.

Maybe Distant Sun. It starts out pleasant but rather benign, the second verse takes it up a notch, and the bridge snaps things into focus. Then the final chorus is really resonant and poignant. Thinking back, that song was critical in really appreciating Crowded House, and Neil Finn as a great songwriter.

Great thread. Damn, does it have to be one? Oh well. I guess it would be "Four Seasons In One Day". Perfection in less than three minutes, and as Peter Paphides wrote: " Here’s another one. ‘Four Seasons In One Day’, when those ghostly harmonies converge upon Neil’s voice like vultures to a carcass. "

wow ... way too many to list. I guess it would be that "from the Gods" bridge in "Fall At Your Feet". Thank you Mitchell Froom for suggesting Neil put those verses with that chorus and that bridge and out comes what would be a once in a lifetime song for most songwriters.

In my command. Nails in my feet. In '93 I'd just found TA in a record store on a visit we took to see family, and my Mom and I listened to the tape twice on the way home. Of course it just washed over me at the time. But that's the point!

I'd pick something more left field, maybe a track off the Finn album. Perhaps 'Eyes of the World', I love the lyric. That line about Englebert Humperdink always makes me smile, and is apt for the theme of this thread (except Neil and Tim instead of Englebert!)

This is my first post! How exciting... I didn't even have to think about it. "Message Boy" from the Luton Tapes. In fact, every time I hear it still sounds like the first time. Wow.

Great call! Luton was my most anticipated album ever! I read about the tapes in Mike Chunn’s Stranger Than Fiction book in 93 and had to wait about 15 years to finally hear them - So much expectation, so much hope and it exceeded it incredibly! The song I would choose though is “Semi-Detached”. I heard it for the first time when it was put on the “Spellbound” Best of. It just blew me away... How could an Enz song THAT good fly under the radar for so long...

I suppose this question refers to songs which really struck you on the first listen, kind of the opposite of a 'grower'. It's pretty rare for me to love a song the first time around, but here are three: Wherever You Are - Has Neil's voice ever sounded better? She Goes On - Nearly melted when I first heard the chorus Sacred Cow - Groovy but moody atmosphere, immediate earworm

Likewise w/ I Feel Possessed. TOLM was one of the first CDs I bought in 1988. Blown away when first heard this song and great lead in to rest of album. Remains my favorite CH album and in my all time top 10. In a more perfect world CH would’ve reunited in 2018 for 30th anniversary TOLM tour (which would’ve much preferred to FM tour)...

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

The Pineapple Head ·
I've seen on the forum a few people expressing their dislike for the 21st Century iteration of Crowded House. And I can't understand that. I genuinely love both of their albums and really feel like they were taking strides forward. I love the life and energy that Matt Sherrod brings. I still hope for a third album with the Finn/Seymour/Hart/Sherrod line up. C'mon let's get some love for the now over a decade old "current" Crowded House.

As someone who discovered the band only in late 2017, I would be thrilled if they reunited again in any form. I have never seen them live. Seeing Neil live in September for the first time in NZ. If they reunite, no matter where the concert is, I'm buying a ticket immediately! PS I love Time on Earth. I have not explored Intriguer enough.

I just revisited the last 2 CD's. Firstly, I find that TOE is much better than Intriguer. It seems more raw and real....as if it was more hastily created and recorded which to me makes the songs sound better. The only hiccup for me on TOE is She Called Up (the song that seemed to try too hard to be Crowded Houseish) They should have replaced that with Lost Island and it would have been a classic. Intriguer seems too polished and worked on for too long (tried the songs out on the road for too...

I love Time on Earth, and as an album I even like it more than their debut — the debut’s first 4 tracks are classic but I don’t need the rest. None of TOE reaches the band’s greatest heights, but it’s solid all the way through & there are some really great highlights: Nobody Wants To, Pour Le Monde, People are Like Suns. I enjoy all the other songs, including You’re the One to Make Me Cry. TOE is the last album of Neil’s I really loved. I enjoyed the Intriguer process, hearing early...
