Together Alone

Temple of Lowmen

Time On Earth

Woodface

Crowded House

Intriguer

I think Time On Earth will become a much respected hidden treasure in years to come. It has some absolute gems that never seem to get mentioned as much as others from other albums. I also think Intriguer is a much better album than I originally gave it credit for - it could easily have ranked above the first album, for me.  I find Woodface seriously disjointed and it very much reflects the writing/recording process, which was seriously awry.

Ok, I'll bite.

Temple of Low men

Song for song, the strongest of them all IMHO. This was also the first and only one I had for a while, so it was in heavy rotation and I never minded hearing it again. A unique trip with grittyness and sublime rapture.

Together Alone

Very strong and would have been first but doesn’t hold up song for song as TOLM to me. No doubt it contains some very powerful numbers among Neil’s best works.

Woodface

This is my favorite to sing along with, thanks to all the Tim harmonies. And I’ll happily sing Neil’s parts, too. But there are a few songs which I never really took to, and they tend to get skipped as I consider them novelties. I’m still here, notwithstanding.

Time on Earth

Fresh and meaningful expressions shared on compact disc. A few really good gems on an album which tends to run on like a director’s cut of a movie I already enjoy.

Crowded House

So many great moments. The telephone ring, for example. It does sound a bit dated, but the exuberance and new sound can still carry on.

Intriguer

A shorter collection which brought us yanks another tour, always a bonus. It just doesn’t seem as if they were trying as hard. Although when it was new I was loving every track as an earnest fan would. I also had personal things going on at this time so it’s lost some luster there. Still, better than most of the stuff on the radio (duh).
