The problem with Tim's solo output is that it's invariably a curates egg; what's good is v.good (and occasionally great) but all his albums, to varying degrees, seem to contain filler. Not this one though. Subtly produced by Mitch Froom, who, in the past has worked with Crowded House and Richard Thompson, these songs are amongst the most melodic and least self conscious that he's written. A good number of them would stand comparison with his brother Neil's output, and that is high praise indeed! All in all then, a great, undiscovered pop/rock album. Buy with confidence.

If you enjoy Crowded House's Woodface then give this a go. Tim is at the peak of his powers and in my view this is his finest and most consistent work. Full of catchy songs and melodies, his peerless vocals express a depth of feeling that is rarely matched. Polished songwriting and recorded before his voice started to deteriorate. "Tears Inside", "How'm I Gonna Sleep" and "Not Even Close" are up there with the very best in the genre. Buy it while you can.

Also worth trying "Before and After", his other great solo album from this period and "Everyone is Here", the later album with brother Neil. Split Enz's Time and Tide is an earlier masterpiece.

I bought this CD in the mid-90s and then, again, a few years back. Most of it is a wonderful array of organic, well-produced pop/rock; Mitchell Froom does wonders for Mr. Finn, who was never in better boice before or after. A couple of songs stray too close to dated 80s adult contemporary sludge, but most of them are punchy mature pop numbers. One of my favorites from him.

5.0 out of 5 stars if the devil rewards surrender - like a swollen river rising - when you learn how to trust your feelings - Tim Finn 4 Nov. 2015
By Huevos Rancheros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A nice collection of songs. Crescendo sticks out for me as the best of the bunch "without desire we are all in rags and chains" to quote Mr. Finn.
Once you hear this song, you will desire to hear it again,again,again.
If you like Crowded House, then you should own this, and if you hate Crowded House, you should own this record. If you just like music, it will be a good listen, and if you compose or record music, then its a beautiful template of late 80's/early 90's production techniques and arrangement.

I've bought this cd twice, if its gets ripped off again. I'll buy another copy. so I guess I like it . it won't cure the common cold, but it will make your ears feel better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not even close? Nonsense! 31 Dec. 2008
By Pastor of Disaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a real little gem of an album, a great little collection of melodic songs, that have the intimacy and sense of place that often hallmarks Kiwi acts, lots of little stories told in catchy melodies. I agree that this is easily the most even of Tims' outputs, and possibly even Neils' as well. You can see that Tim experimented with different sounds with Escapade and Big Canoe but this album is probably closest to the "Woodface" era Crowded House. I would really strongly recommend this album to fans of Crowded House.
3.0 out of 5 stars A few gems 27 Jun. 2013
By Father Time - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A friend gave this to me a while back, but I had lost the cassette in various moves. So I finally bought the CD, eager to enjoy the album that shone fairly brightly in my memory. Sadly, I now feel like there's only a few good songs on here. "Young Mountain" starts it off, and is by far the best tune; Mitchell Froom co-writes, and as with anything he touches, really creates something special. But after that, only about half the songs are worth listening to on a repeated basis. Of course, fans of the Finn brothers will probably want to have it in their collection for those 5 or six songs and the pleasure of listening to Tim in general, but others might just want to download individual mp3s (if they are available).

5.0 out of 5 stars Tim Finn 20 July 2008
By Jan A. Manning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the essential Tim Finn record. If you only buy one...this is it. Great songs from "How'm I Gonna Sleep" to "Parihaka" this is a very romantic, hopeful record, full of melody...He is in fine voice. With Neil providing some of the backup vocals, the brothers are in perfect harmony.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tim In LA 19 Sept. 2002
By Alistair Clarke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a real gem. Tim joins the likes of bass player Tony Levin
and producer Michael Froom to record an album that is unlike anything I've heard. There are some moments of earth-shattering beauty within the ballads, some very NZ guitar/vocals and even a ballad which sounds like the best song Phil Collins never wrote.
Also nice to hear Neil Finn singing back-up vocals. Recommended.
