I think it's fair to say that each Crowded House album follows a bit of a formula, as most pop/rock album do. We expect each album to have a fun song, a deep and meaningful song, a couple songs that would sound good on the radio, a couple more experimental songs. You know how it goes. So, rather than simply asking people which album they prefer, I thought it might be fun to break it down a bit further and compare similar songs from each album.
In pairing up songs, I used my own best judgment. Obviously there isn't always going to be a perfect match. I don't know if "Either Side of the World" is this album's "She Called Up" (though I could make a case for it) but I am pretty sure that "Saturday Sun" is this album's "Don't Stop Now". Please, feel free to comment on what alternate song pairings you would choose.
I'm curious to see what choices are hard for people to make and which songs are the clear winners.
