This has to be my favourite Crowded House album of all because each song is brilliantly written.
The best tracks from this incredible debut album are "Mean To Me", "World Where You Live", "Hole In The River", "Can't Carry On", "That's What I Call Love" and most of all the song that launched Crowded House to the big time worldwide, "Don't Dream It's Over". It is one of my favourite songs of all time as well as being my favourite Crowded House song.
I could give the album more than five stars because it is so superb. This was a great start for the band and I highly reccomend it to everyone who likes good pop/rock music and to anyone as a start to their Crowded House/Neil Finn collection.

Neil Finn has a real gift for songwriting, as Crowded House's debut album clearly shows. Having graduated from Split Enz, he teamed up with Paul Hester (drums) and Nick Seymour (bass guitar), moved to a cramped one room apartment in LA, and Crowded House was born.
From the confused, eerie tones of "Hole in the River", about Finn's aunt's suicide, to the classic, ethereal "Don't Dream It's Over", this album is full of music that surprises and challenges the listener, in the way that only Neil Finn and Crowded House know how.
The album, as a whole, is finely crafted, if a little rough around the edges, but that only adds to its charm. The lyrics tear up the rule book, one minute angst-ridden, the next minute hopelessly optimistic, seemingly laying bare the anguish, hopes and fears of Neil Finn.
As for the vocals, this man has a voice from the Gods. Capable of being sweet as honey, then raw and emotional.
Altogether, a classic album, especially for the band's debut effort.

So this is where it all began.

As debuts go, it is pretty strong. The song writing is delightful from beginning to end and the vocals and harmonies are great.

This album put in place the building blocks for stronger and better albums, not least the classic Woodface but remains nevertheless a very good album which is well worth investigating.

as you may or may not realise, this was CHs first foray into the music industry, and it was a HUGE hit in the US. now, they're not right about many things musically, but the US struck it true with this album!
firstly, the tracks on here are just dripping with passion, power and post-split enz experimentation. there is no doubt however, it is not as fresh as other albums, but this is purely due to its age. it is very eighties in it's sound, and that can initially put you off. however, dont be scared away, because there are classics in here!!!
the only drawback i can determine is the "Hole in the river", i thought it was just a little cheesy with all those strange noises for a song discussing the suicide of a family member. this is, however, the only drawback to this album, but there are bonafide classics throughout.
this is possibly the greatest album ever made, you MUST buy it!!!

Previously listening to CH's greatest hits a majority of the songs on here are very familiar but I do love this album. Don't dream it's over has always been a favourite of mine. Mean to me, World where you live and Tombstone are ones that stand out.
