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.

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.

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.

This album, along with The Spin Doctors' Pocketful of Kryptonite and R.E.M.'s Out Of Time, reminds me of a time in the early 1990s when alternative bands dressed in their Byrds-like finery and played quite sunny, wistful, folk pop rock about nature, love and friendship.
`Chocolate Cake' is a moodily humourous song with a blues-like ending. It's a pleasant start to the album. `It's only natural', like a few other songs on this album, has a slightly quirky start. It reminds me of the short bursts of music that you hear inbetween scenes in comedy shows like Friends. Neil Finn's singing style is clean, resonant, harmonious and comfortable with himself. `Fall at your feet' may be Crowded House's `Every move you make'. Like a few other songs on this album, the last verse is faster than the others. `Tall Trees' is pleasantly strident. I particularly like the part where the last verse is interspersed with guitar playing (`The salt from your skin/ Tall Trees/ Tall Tree').
`Weather with you' features a Byrds-like jingle jangle sound at the beginning and between the verses and choruses. It also has some of my favourite lines: `Things ain't cooking in my kitchen. Strange affliction wash over me. Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire Couldn't conquer the blue sky.' Although those last two lines could be intended to convey that there is always freedom somewhere, I think that they are also saddening- as the Stone Roses put it in `Tightrope' from their `Second Coming' album- `Are we etched in stone or just scratched in the sand?' `Whispers and moans' is a moody song with a slightly mystical sound and featuring what sounds like a glockenspiel. Some of my favourite parts are when the line `When I wake up in your room' rises up and when Neil Finn shouts about things that will `one day be forgotten'.
