5.0 out of 5 stars It grows on you..., 15 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: One Nil (Ltd Edition) (Audio CD)
I gave this a spin in my CD player when I bought it... and that was it. Back in the case it went and promptly went on to gather dust on my shelf. My initial impression? Self-indulgent, dull and boring.
However, whilst browsing though my collection a few months later, looking for something to play, I thought, "I'll give this a go, again," so I did just that.
"Stick with it," I thought. So I did just that.
"Hmm. There's some potential. Keep listening," so I did just that.
Can you see where I'm going with this?
After a few plays, the quality of the songs shine through. It's not aimed at the commercial, "plastic pop," market that is predominant in the music industry today. Instead, it is much more crafted and musically-engineered. There are twists and turns that aurally stimulate you and I've found that I hear new things every time I play it.
Neil Finn is nothing short of a genius: this album reflects the personal and musical effort that he has put in to it.
Okay, so it is bit different from "Try Whistling This" and radically different from the Crowded House material, but now Neil has matured, so has his music. All this explains why the lyrics have grown up, too.
