Impressions = Great opener awash with harmonies, atmospherics bolstered by powerfully solemn drum signature.= 4 stars

Divebomber = This track is absolutely sublime. Sigur Ros - meets Mercury Rev meets Bladerunner esque sound scaping.
What a great shame that the rest of this album isnt this experimental and edgy = Emerse and embrace. MASTERFUL Stuff. = 5 stars

White Lies & Alibis = An orchestrated ambient exploration of Finn & Gabriel worlds recalls echoes of Private Universe = 5 stars for the song and NO stars for the irksome and pointless ONE minute TWENTY second waste of my life masquerading as an "INTRO"

Better than TV, Pony Ride and Impressions are passable, but the title track is an absolute stinker.
The only reason that a decent song such as Better than TV has been swamped by the awful string arrangment dumped on it, is because the "band" have only put the barest of bones on the track in the first place. If Finn got himself a decent bassist and drummer and actually bothered to orchestrate the track himself, as is normally the case, then this would be a stand out cut on the album.

Frankly and sadly, the rest sound like a load of bits and pieces and out takes that NF has had in his locker gathering dust for twenty years or more.

Download: Divebomber, Impressions, White Lies and Alibis.

Sadly, there is not an entire album of similar material and the remaining nine tracks are largely over produced average mainstream fillers You can't raise the bar as a high as NF has and subsequently resort to limbo level.

One Nil is a superb collection of beautifully crafted songs by one of the Worlds truly great songwriters. This in comparison is not good enough by a mile.

I bought this CD prior to seeing Neil Finn live in Birmingham. Different to his earlier work but no less brilliant, really helped by hearing the same songs live in concert. The stand out song for me is Divebomber, followed by Better than tv and Pony ride. I know it's often said but this album really is a grower. Great stuff.

Neil Finn was always a favourite songwriter of mine when he was in Crowded House. I was thinking that he must have given up the business but this new album really grows on one with repeated plays.

This is a bit of a grower and a bit of a new direction for Neil but I'm really starting to like it. Recommended and much more interesting than his newer Crowded House efforts.
