Synopsis

Album Details
Arguably their Best Record, Crowded House Had Come to Full Maturation with this Set of Thirteen Ear Catching Tracks. The Occupant of the Producer's Chair on this Album Switched from Longtime Sound Shaper Mitchell Froom to Killing Joke's Youth. The Musical Arrangements Here Reflected and Encompassed More of their Native Kiwi Homeland (New Zealand) Than Any of their Other Albums. Each Track on this Desert Island Essential is Played with Passion and Heart. Neil Finn was at the Height of his Golden Songwriting Skills and Produced a Modern Classic. The Music is Simply Breathtaking and the Lyrics Poetic and Intelligent.

CD Reviews

The depth of this album, still so strong after all these yea
P. Olijve | Enschede Netherlands | 02/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own over 800 cd's and consider myself someone who knows about great music. As much as i adore all CH albums this one stands out every time. To hear new things after 100 listens is simply magic. In my opinion Crowded House and (Radiohead Ok computer) are the only ones who come very close to the mighty Beatles. Together with Abbey Road and Ok Computer, Together Alone must be included in the best albums I posess. Very underrated."
Crowded House: Their Best Album yet
Chris G. | IL USA | 06/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recently I have become a big fan of Crowded House. Altogether I have four CH albums.
Neil Finn is a genius and a very strong, highly skilled songwriter. His skills bloom on this album the most.
'Together Alone' released in 1993 is their best album. Sure, their album before - 'Woodface' is good too, but I believe this album is better produced and filled with properly formed songs throughout. Atmospheric melodic pop, darker and more somber then earlier recordings with much more consistency.
May not contain the 'radio hits' like 'Together Alone's' predecessors, but it certainly has better songs as a whole. After many listens I still can't find a bad song, no filler fluff at all.
Highlights include "Nails In My Feet" - "Pineapple Head" - "Private Universe" - "Walking On the Spot" - "Catherine Wheels" (no not the band) and my personal favorite "Distant Sun"-
So many near perfect gems, it's really hard not to just include every song (13 in all) as a favorite of mine.
After a long break, Crowded House is back in 2007. After buying their first four albums very quickly, one after the other I will definitely get their new one as soon as it is released in July.

Heart, Wit and Beauty

"I would put Neil Finn up against any songwriter. He has written some of the most haunting, delightful and enduring songs in my musical library. A few of the songs on this disc are among my favorite Crowded House songs: "Nails in My Feet," "Pineapple Head," "Walking on the Spot" and "Catherine Wheels" instantly connect--beautiful, lyrical and timeless. But even when the song carries a meditative or poignant tone, there is always a sense of lightness or even humor hidden within. I guess that's something I appreciate about Finn's songwriting--the layers of heart, wit and beauty that seem to weave together so naturally. The songs feel true to life."
