Well, I have an emotional attachment to Crowded House as well, and love nothing more than seeing them together but, as I say, I'd rather have great Neil songs without them than rubbish songs with them. It's the songs that matter.

Ok, but tell us which rubish songs in CH catalogue are that? And which Neils "great" songs in era after Intriguer are that (except Out of Silence album in whole)? See, I can relate with those who was dissapointed how Intriguer turned out - all that americana unnesecery style, Wilco infuence, lack of energy, sounded too loud without good reason, but... Most of us here can agree that all Intriguer era (bonus 2. disc of Intriguer) was fantastic time, with lot of classic pop-rock songs in which...

Mariola, you really shouldn’t base your argument on metacritic reviews. Music is so personal. It’s all about what it means to you . I am firmly in the camp that Neil’s recorded output since Time on Earth has not been as consistently wonderful to my ears as that which came in the 10-15 years before, but the metacritic scores don’t agree with what does and does not speak to me. Just because “professional critics” (whatever that means) rate Out of Silence over Lightsleeper doesn’t mean I am...

Music is highly subjective, so there's no reason for anyone to agree with anyone, professional critics or not, about what they like and what they don't. E.g. for me 'Wings at the Speed of Sound' is Wings' best album. Moving to the topic of Neil's music pre- and post-Time on Earth, Neil definitely has changed his music. Clearly there are some people who will like that, and some who don't. But, artists rarely stay the same pumping out album after album for decades at consistent quality. If...

Ofcourse, Brownie. But, we dont talk here about human rights to like or dislike or just tastes in music. I am sure that there are some folks who think that Paul Weller made his best music in 80s, but its definitely not something universaly aclaim. Further, what to say in my case when about every new Neils album after TWT I have more similar opinion with most of the critics than most of the fans here? Am I not having a right to be subjective? Futrher, isnt a fact that with every new album...

In the world where we live, more people know him as "Crowded House guy". And some of those folks realize what a great band they were. Until the mid-90's I was a known to friends as a HUGE fan of their music, yet (yes, I'm ashamed) I hadn't memorized the band members' names. But the music was AMAZING.

Setlist and/or Rehearsal Songs

Romer ·
From https://www.rollingstone.com/m...eartbreakers-730187, it appears as though Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Free Fallin'" made the list of rehearsal songs being considered for Fleetwood Mac setlists, as did Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over." "Oh, Well" was also included, but with vocals from Mike Campbell, as Neil apparently felt that they required more of a bluesy touch than of which he was capable. The first Fleetwood Mac tour date is now only three days away, so more on the...

Good review. I’m also pleased they noted that it takes an additional 5 musicians on stage to complement the 6 billed as Fleetwood Mac. I’ve seen this tour and really enjoyed it, but it is very much best not to think too much about it, musicianship-from-Fleetwood-Mac-wise.

Re: Setlist and/or Rehearsal Songs

I see the extra musicians as just filling out the arrangements...I don’t see them as compensating for something lacking in the core band. FM is rich enough to afford that level of production and I think they just want to put on a big show.

Exactly. It's also worth pointing out that what I recall as being much, if not exactly the same musicians and backing singers were augmenting the principal players when I last saw Fleetwood Mac with Lindsey in the band ten years ago and have been for many years and several tours. Plus they also receive full introductions to the audience during the show so it's not like they're a deliberately overlooked presence.

Re: Setlist and/or Rehearsal Songs

Thom Bullock ·
Yeah - I wasn’t suggesting it was either hidden (though for years the percussionist was behind Mick’s drumkit until they started getting bad press about it) or that it was different with Lindsay. I just find it interesting that it takes a village, as it were. It would be a nice moment if Christine were to play the DDIO organ, instead of leaving it to the keyboard player in the shadows.

The is one more off the radar corporate performance on Wednesday in San Francisco but I don't anticipate any set list changes, and possibly not even a full show performance so that does look like the complete Neil Finn/Mike Campbell era Fleetwood Mac all inclusive set list.

Article said that Stevie pushed for Free Fallin even though Mike Campbell isn't a big fan of the song after playing it for so many years. Sounds like the band is going more for crowd pleasers over more obscure songs. Fingers of Love would be fantastic in this setting.

Based on promotional performances and interviews to date this portion of the Fleetwood Mac set has potentially been revealed so far: The Chain Gypsy Second Hand News Little Lies Gold Dust Woman Don't Stop Free Fallin' Don't Dream It's Over Oh Well (Part 1) Dreams As much as they've mentioned 3 hour sets, and I hope it's true - I'd guess this will be closer to half of the show. It's mildly surprising "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" doesn't appear to be the nod to Tom Petty & The...

I actually thought it sounded pretty good for the first two songs, and that maybe I had misjudged this whole thing. And then came the opening strains of Second Hand News and my skin started to crawl. Why would they play that song?? Dumb decision. I could not take hearing Neil sing that song to Stevie. I turned it off when they turned to sing it to each other. Yuck.

The second song was Little Lies, not You Make Lovin Fun. The whole set is on Periscope, in very poor video quality, but the sound is good. https://www.pscp.tv/w/1MYxNqVOagNJw

It didn’t look like it was live-streamed oncwtv or the iHeartRadio app but I found this: https://www.pscp.tv/w/1MYxNqVOagNJw I thought The Chain was a lot better than the Ellen performance. I thought Don’t Stop and Little Lies (Sugar Mouse - LL was the second song not YMLF) sounded better than the On With The Show tour versions. I agree that Second Hand News was an odd choice. I didn’t hate it, but there just is no reason to play LB songs (particularly ones that start “I know there's nothing...

Would have been smart to play Oh Well instead of Second Hand News. Gold Dust Woman was the highlight for me. Stevie sounded close to her old self in that song and it gave each of the members a chance to shine. Better to go with older songs with less Lindsey influence. The band has so many great songs that lack the "Lindsey gloss" and I would love to see the band embrace them. "Hypnotized", "Oh Well", "Dust", etc. And perhaps it's me but it looked to me like Christine wasn't playing the keys.

After watching the above video, I have to say that I am disappointed. I know that the sound and video quality were not the greatest, but I heard and saw enough to determine that I think Neil is not the right man for this job. Is it me or does Neil not really sound like himself? He is actually sounding American. It almost seems that he is trying to sing like Lindsey. I am not sure if he is doing it on purpose or it may be just a subconscious thing. But, that is disappointing to me as I have...

I also thought that Neil was trying to sound like Lindsey in this performance. And strangely enough, that was working for me until they played Second Hand News.

I’m honestly not hearing this supposed affectation in Neil’s singing. His singing accent has always sounded a bit Americanized to me, and these performances sound like him.

I also thought it sounded good! Although I still don't watch it for the music, I just want to see how Neil is doing. And I still find it weird to see him front and centre of a different band than his own... It looks like he just took them over! (Which for some reason i find absolutely hilarious.) I happened to use Infinity Sessions week three for exactly this purpose

Wow! Nice additions there, particularly - "Man Of The World". Neil and Mike Campbell did a great job on it at Largo while they were in tour rehearsals so a little surprising it's taken almost a year to make it into the set - it was a #2 hit. Only a few of their singles from any era of the band have charted higher in any territory. With "I Got You' reinstated in the set that would potentially be an additional three songs featuring Neil on lead vocal going forward on the antipodean tour...
