I bought this when it came out, 2001 I think and it's a fine collection of songs by Neil Finn. I love the back to basics, organic sounds of acoustics plus the odd groove sample here and there. Finest moment is Into The Sunset which I've seen him perform live - much awesomeness!

I love this album because it hugs you like a warm coat. This is an album strong on beautiful harmonies and sweet melodies.

The song writing is strong, the vocals excellent and the overall feel is just fabulous.

This has to be one of my favourite Neil Finn albums - it's a gem.

This album didn't at first appeal to me quite as much as the brilliant "Try Whistling this" but after a few plays the songs get under your skin and you find yourself listening to them more and more.

The first three songs which are joined together are just magical, especially the synthesizer bit that joins "The Climber" and "Rest of the day off", which gets my vote for best album track.

If you like Crowded House and/or Neil Finn you won't go wrong with this album - recommended without reserve

I am a big Neil Finn fan and have been looking forward to hearing this,but despite listening to it a few times I just can`t get into it,sure there are some good tunes on here Wherever You Are and Driving Me Mad are classic Finn but I think the production lets this record down...it sounds like he`s singing in the bathtub..and the guitar sound is not quite upto his usual standards.

Although I seem to be in a minority, I felt that Finn's previous work before this release was a major letdown. That album, Try Whistling This, lacked worthwhile melodies and the production was surprisingly stale considering a Neil Finn project.

From that standpoint, I was not expecting too much from One Nil. Such fears were unwarranted because this is where he should have continued from Crowded House's Together Alone, their finest release IMHO. It was evident straight from the opening track, The Climber, that his originality and knack of writing melodic and yet warm tunes (even those organically produced) was back. Rest of the Day Off follows, giving the opening stages a splendid flow that remains mostly throughout the record.

The production is less dense than TWT and one senses that Neil has regained his confidence which probably took some beating during the final stages of Crowded House.

Highlights include Wherever You Are, Turn & Run (a duet with Sheryl Crow) and Into the Sunset. The only tracks not up to par are Don't Ask Why and Elastic Heart but those are in no way songs one reaches out for the remote for.

This album is definitely among Neil Finn's best work and hopefully a signal that TWT was only a minor sidestep of his consistency in producing among the best work in pop music in recent years and the future.

One last note, the US version, dubbed One All, is even better.
