CD Reviews

One of the best albums in my collection

"Definitely buy this album if you don't already own it!! Crowded House mastered the art of songcraft and were also a terrific live band judging from the archived concert tracks that make up disc 2 of this limited-edition 2CD set - alas I never saw them in concert. I bought this on release in 1996 and it remains a firm favourite of mine. Most of the songs here have words and music by the master songwriter and lead vocalist Neil Finn, with Tim Finn featuring on a few 1991 songs from Woodface, and guitarist Mark Hart appearing on later CH songs from Together Alone and the 1996 songs included here for the first time. Drummer Paul Hester and bass guitarist Nick Seymour are the other core mebers of CH and appear on all songs as the trusty rhythm section. Together, these fine players create musical magic and a true spirit of togetherness and harmony.

My favourites are timeless melodic classics like Weather With You (my favourite Crowded House song), Four Seasons In One Day, Better Be Home Soon, and Don't Dream It's Over (their biggest worldwide hit single), but I also like the more up-tempo stuff like the joyous Something So Strong, the perfect pop of It's Only Natural and the newer stuff from their last year together like Instinct nnd particularly Everything Is Good For You (their last chart hit).

The bonus live versions are definitely worth having, and some of the band's famous joviality comes through on the snippets of talking between songs.

I rate Crowded House as one of the best bands ever in pop/rock music and Recurring Dream is one of my 10 favourite albums of the 90's.

5 stars!!!"

"Having all their albums already I wasn't interested in the greatest hits but the live compilation. It's a great mix which includes all the spontaneous banter that was a trademark at their shows. Q magazine readers voted them live band of the year in the early nineties. This album shows why. Nick Seymour's meandering on Sister Madly is hilarious. A sad day when this band split and denied us the chance to see them live again."

"This album was, for me, a superb introduction to the band that would come to dominate my CD player aned my life! Quite simply this is a must for anyone - and I mean anyone. The songs are simply infectious - Neil's mastery of lyrics, harmonies and anything musical, all shine through here. Personal favourites include "Fall at Your Feet" - which gives me a lump in my throat whenever I hear it! "Don't Dream its over" and the previously unrealeased tracks "Instinct" and "Not the Girl you think you are". The songs are saturated with honesty, intelligence and emotion and can make you cry one day and smile the other. The album also has lovely up-beat pop songs: "Weather with You", "Distant Sun" and "It's only natural" spring to mind. This album is essential and I can't stress that enough. It is one of the few albums that I would pay ridiculous amounts of money for! Track it down! If you are disappointed then you are in an almost negligible minority! Happy Listening!"
