Format:Audio CD
If you asked the average person to name a Crowded House song, I think they'd probably choose something from Woodface, and in this respect Together Alone could be viewed as a poor relation.
Indeed, Woodface was in many ways a contemporary pop classic that offered some evocative, lyrically-clever songs, but for me Together Alone towers high above it. The crisp, pop-style production of previous albums is replaced by a compelling atmosphere and moodiness that permeates what was Crowded House's final studio album.
If you've never listened to Crowded House before, or were put off by their previous offerings, leave your mind open to this album because it is truly captivating. Spine-tingling moments abound, notably in the wonderful 'Nails In My Feet', opening track 'Kare Kare' and 'Walking On The Spot', with a slightly more familiar Crowded House sound in 'In My Command' and 'Locked Out'.
Despite the fact that this album is now eight years old, it still inhabits a time and a mood all of its own, somewhere in a dreamland at the edge of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing, uneasy climax. 13 Jan 2004
By Mr. A. J. Whiteway VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
While definitely not the album that spawned the most well known Crowded House (for that one should check out 'woodface'), this final album is without a doubt their best.
It was recorded when the band was nearing its end, and it makes for jarring, uneasy melodies interspersed with the usual brilliance of Neil Finn's writing. This makes for a much less commercial album than woodface, but give this album a bit of a chance and the payoff is very big indeed.
For example, the opener 'Kare Kare' evokes the New Zealand beach it was recorded on, but is tinged with melancholic strings and delay ridden guitars. That's not to say that the album is all downright experimental - as always the quality of the songwriting is at the forefront of Crowded House's music; anyone looking for more great pop songs should look no further to 'locked out' or the sharp acoustics of 'pineapple head'.
It is as the album draws to a close though that the album goes from merely good to a little masterpiece. After the glorious 'Distant Sun', 'Catherine Wheels' edges along easily, before 'Skin Feeling' brings us back into focus with a more upbeat track. The finale 'Together Alone' is amazingly powerful - the maori choir certainly something that would not have occurred to some of the bands at the time, but works wonderfully at the time. Interestingly it has since been utilised on the Lord of the Rings soundtrack - another New Zealand endeavour.
Ultimately, you have to wonder just why Crowded House are as underrated as they are. It makes little sense to me, as seems to be the case with the other reviewers here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Achtung, Automatic, ...Together? 25 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
At the time of the release of Together Alone, U2 and R.E.M. were enjoying huge commercial and critical success with their albums Achtung Baby and Automatic For The People respectively. Despite gaining deservedly similar critical success and being generally regarding as one of the main rock bands at the time, Together Alone became for some reason a commercial failure, especially in light of the album being the follow-up to the massively popular Woodface. Lousy choices of singles most have been a significant factor.

Together Alone is in many ways contradictory. The melodies are fantastic; very few albums have such abundance of catchy pop tunes. The lyrics, however, are reflective, sinister and even harrowing (Catherine Wheels). Neil Finn was obviously at the top of his game during that period. The production of the songs meanders from being soft and slick as in the opening track, Kare Kare, to becoming raw in instrumentation and singing as in the next track, In My Command. The production is still constantly experimental. The number of instruments used is not still that many, with most tracks driven by the routine guitar/bass/drums. Various sound effects and subtle use of other instruments are, however, created, adding texture to the sound. Case in point is Private Universe, a haunting song with many drum effects creating an atmospheric sonic experience.

Together Alone is in many ways not unlike the Beatles' White Album. All kinds of variances are taking place in all manners but the end result is yet as complete as pop albums are able to achieve.

From my standpoint, Together Alone is among the era's best albums and beats other Crowded House releases hands down. Neil Finn has not come close since going solo in producing anything of the same quality. Together Alone is Finn's career peak and a must have for all Crowded House fans

4.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Great Album 6 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Now, i would like to say that this album is one of the best albums you'll ever buy. i didnt really listen to this album when i got it. surprising!
However, after listening to all the other crowded house albums a lot, i decided to whirl this round. at first however, i didnt like it. in fact after that initial whirl, i didnt listen to it for at least a week or so preferring my other crowded house albums. i gave it a few more tries and it grew on me. it is a fantastic recording, a real earthy and chilled album in most places.
it is not however as much to my taste as the first three albums. it is far more adventorous and experimental than those albums and sometimes in my opinion, doesn't pull it off that well. i think "Private Universe" could be just as powerful without so many layers in it, and i don't really like "Locked Out". however, you've got bonafide classics such as "Distant Sun", "Pineapple Head", "Together Alone", "Nails in my Feet" etc.
if you like the crowdies, and enjoy their almost magical gift for beautiful melodies and sumptuous harmonies, then this album is a must. it completes the story of Crowded House and is one of the best albums you'll ever own!
