This is from http://www.xpressmag.com.au/archives/2007/06/crowded_house_t.php CROWDED HOUSE Time On Earth Parlophone EMI Music Due to their beautiful, ethereal pop music, the passing of time and the way in which they bowed out in November 1996 with a huge farewell concert on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, Crowded House attained a kind of soft-focus mythology over the years, a factor so sadly enhanced by the suicide of drummer Paul Hester in March, 2005. His passing, however, drew...

Sunday Herald Sun, Melbourne, 24 June: This old House seems empty three out of five stars In short: Low-key return as Finn's friends pick up the pieces. SO it's back to the beginning for Crowded House. It was 22 years ago that Neil Finn, restless after the breakdown of Split Enz, formed a band with Paul Hester, Nick Seymour and guitarist Craig Hooper to bring his songs to life. This year, 11 years after that band's dissolution, Finn is doing it again. Not for the first time in the band's...

This one's from The Guardian, not one of the best Dave Simpson Friday June 29, 2007 The Guardian In the 14 years since their last studio album, Crowded House have delved much further into the melancholy that underpinned hits like Don't Dream It's Over. Time on Earth is clearly a response to drummer Paul Hester's suicide in 2005, following a long period of depression. "In Regent's Park I will mourn for you," Neil Finn sings on English Trees, while Silent House finds him pondering "the years...

What Scarer said. Auditions are over and I trust Neil and Nick and Mark to make that call -- don't you? My favorite drummer is Manu Katche. He is enormously gifted and took Peter Gabriel's songs to a completely different level during the Secret World tour. Just this past Monday I happened to hear another drummer with Richard Thompson's band, Michael Jerome. He set up his kit so that all the drums and cymbals were on flat plane and that man used ever inch of the skins and every surface and...

I would like to add that, having seen him at the Thekla and also on the webcast, as well as listening to all the radio stuff, He is a great drummer. What the band needed was a guy they could hang with and have a laugh with as well as someone who could drum like themselves (all those ever having been in a band will know that this is not an easy find). They found Matt and i reckon that he does the job pretty well. I think the problem may be that Paul was such a colourful, funny guy and anyone...

I think it's always dangerous to use objective terms like "does not sound as good as..." when it comes to subjective things like music. Matt and Paul are very different drummers, just like Nick and Sebastian Steinberg are very different bass players. Now, one could argue that Nick isn't as good technically as Sebastian, and that could be true - but it doesn't make Sebastian better than Nick, just more technically proficient. In the same way, Matt is not the same kind of drummer as Hessie was...

Scotland On Sunday review: ROCK AND POP CROWDED HOUSE Time On Earth *** Parlophone3960272, £12.99 For a band who have always produced such sensitive, melodic music, Crowded House's past is blighted with sibling friction of which Noel and Liam Gallagher would be proud.

Finn senior still has an instinctive feel for composing pop music, as borne...

Adidasman,if you're going to quote me be accurate. I said a stack of cds(and of course that would be live stuff from their own recordings at shows) and also never said the lifelong fan bit. I simply meant someone with a history of the band would be more aware of the magnitude of how big these guys are and have been over the years and would obviously have a more general knowledge of their catologue and be aware of the feel and sound that is Crowded House. Matt knows that now I'm sure, I just...

Fourteen years since Crowded House last released an album of new material, it's surviving members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour are taking another tilt at the pop windmill. Paul Hester's place has been taken by Beck's drummer, Matt Sherrod, but it's easy to imagine his memory inspired the elegiac final track, People Are Like Suns.

Any doubts that anyone might have about Matt Sherrod will be answered when you see the band live; he fits perfectly, plays brilliantly, smiles incessantly, sings constantly, and just seems to love being where he is, driving the good ship Crowded House. The guys really seem to enjoy him, too - he and Liam seemed to be having a blast mugging at each other. As I suspected, Nick and Neil made a GREAT choice - can't wait for a record that's all Matt behind the kit.

I saw Matt for the first time with BECK and just saw him the other night with Crowded House. He is the perfect drummer to play with Crowded House because he is a brilliant player and is NOT there to replace a previous drummer. He simply is Matt Sherrod, the newest full-time member of Crowded House. The work he did on "Hole in the River" at the Mountain Winery (2nd show) should be enough to prove to anyone that he is bringing the highest quality drumming to Crowded House 2007 and not trying...
