5.0 out of 5 stars Genius Pop music 31 Oct 2003
By DiBosco VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Ah, Woodface, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
1. For your wonderful guitar sounds.
2. For your sumptuous harmonies.
3. For your memorable lyrics.
4. For your superb production.
5. But most of all, for your unforgettable songs.
Neil Finn, ladies and genteleman. The Antipodean Lennon AND McCartney rolled into one who, in this finest of albums, presents to the world a collection of pop songs that will delight your aural senses time after time after time.
Twelve years or more have passed since this album was recorded, but it still sounds fresh and joyous to this day. Mitchell Froom, long time collaborator and producer of Crowded House took his final bow with the band on this album and left a legacy of one of the finest pop albums ever recorded. Most people will be familiar with "Weather with you" and many with the likes of "It's only natural", but the album, from the opening bars of "Chocolate Cake", right though to the closing bars of "How will you go" hardly ever lets up from utter perfection.
Not only are the melodies memorable, but the lyrics evocative and they nag at your subconscious. Finn has a clever line or two to sing that sinks into your brain, but never manages to be irritating.
Buy it. You'll love it. It's only natural.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crowded House meets The Beatles 17 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
Neil Finn's song writing has often been compared to even the highlights of the Lennon/McCartney partnership. Actually, Paul could/should have learned a thing or two from Finn in the early 90s. Never were the similarities more obvious than on Woodface, an album packed with great melodies, straight driven arrangements and a gorgeous production. Neil's brother, Tim, joined Crowded House on this album and not only does their partnership shine on the song writing level but even more in the harmonizing on many songs, Tim complementing Neil very successfully on many tracks.

The one track that seems at odds with the album was interestingly the first track and incredibly chosen as the first single. Chocolate Cake is a rocking song but the weakest track on the album, with the brothers seeming to salvage a song that just isn't good enough, radio wise at least. I admit having grown to the song in a strange way but yet always have mixed feelings towards it. This odd single selection must certainly have insured a commercial disaster in the States and could have done the same thing internationally.

After Chocolate Cake it's a bonanza of great solid tunes like the joyful It's Only Natural and Weather With You (a huge hit everywhere in the world, including my 3 year old son's world, except the States) and slower tunes such as Fall At Your Feet and Four Seasons In One Day (my son loves that one too and its corny video). The later part of the album is much slower but no less fulfilling. As Sure As I Am showcases an atmosphere of togetherness whilst How Will You Go reminds me of the plight someone close to me deals with daily due to alcoholism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Classic 17 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
Crowded House were at the peak of their powers when they made this beautifully understated album. It's studded with their most timeless hits and those tracks inbetween reinforce the mood of rainy day introspection. The Finns hark to the Beatles, Nick Drake, Difford and Tillbrook with solid straight down the middle songwriting and simple unfussy arrangements. Lyrics resound with meaning without being over clever. As pop LPs go this is close to perfection. Why we don't see it in all-time polls I'll never know.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOODFACE - RUBBER SOUL FOR THE 90's 30 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
Woodface is the record that broke Crowded House in the UK and most of Europe. It's also one of the finest albums of the 90's and more than deserved its high sales and 4 big hit singles. Starting life as a solo Finn Brothers collection the project quickly morphed into a full blown Crowded House album full of gorgeous, beautifully crafted Beatlesque songs. It's fair to say that the Finn brothers fully embraced the fab four comparisons on Woodface and ran with it.
Four Season's In One Day, Fall At Your feet, Its Only Natural and the smash Weather With You sound as catchy and melodic as they first did over 15 years ago. But there is so much more to Woodface than the hits - Whispers and Moans, How Will You Go and Shes Goes On are terrific ballads, Tall Trees is punchy powerpop and All i Ask is a Tim sung belter - his voice never sounding better.
Crowded House have recently reformed and released the impressive Time On Earth - but it's Woodface, and the darker follow up Together Alone, that the antipodean band built their reputation around. It still sounds great.
A timeless and beautifully paced record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Ageless! 11 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Woodface has to be crowded house at their best. Its easy to listen to whatever mood you may be in and is definately one of those albums that will not be replaced in the favourites collection. I think I realised this when the children I used to babysit for were playing the album and raving about it as if I was too old to know. They were only 5 when it first came out! This has to be a "must have". No-one should be without it.
