4.0 out of 5 stars Great solo Finn record, 16 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dizzy Heights (Audio CD)
I first saw Neil with Split Enz in London in 1977, replacing my hero, Phil Judd. No easy job.

Bought everything him and / or his brother Tim have produced since Mental Notes. So no surprise I bought this on release. And I love it.

Track by track, it starts with Impressions, which is a slow, moody track that has Beatles overtones.

Sequences into the title track, which is pure Neil pop, and worthy of any great pop writer. Could have been any time in the last 50 years, but also very current. Terrific.

Fly In The Face Of Love is more up tempo and has echoes of so many great pop songs. Great single material. Very infectious and has great hook.

Divebomber sounds like an attempt at a Beatles circa Revolution No. 9. Not convinced.

Better than TV. Return to form and another pop classic in the making. Hooks. Infectious. A hit.

Pony Ride. Strange title. Sounds like a late period Split Enz song and would fit a Brit Pop revival album. No bad thing. Nice guitar.

White Lies and Alibis is less pop and more experimental, which is why it's here and not on a Crowded House. Love it.

Recluse. Great track that has interesting a compelling lyrics and a piano led hook that would fit on a Beatles album.

Strangest. A grower in the Beatles mould. Great guitar. Lovely chorus.

In My Blood is the most Crowded of any song here. Pure pop.

Light Of New York. Fairy tale of New York more like. Can imagine Shane McG sing / slurring this. Weak last track. Average at best.

So four stars. Next? Album with Tim. Crowded. Split Enz uk tour. Please
