Crowded House- Temple of Low Men (released July 1988)
Really liked these guys, bought a greatest hits compilation of theirs in the 90s and back tracked on all their albums then. It's been a longggg time since I've spun this so giving the grooves a well earned tickle with the needle.
Crowded House made nice pop/rock songs and had more than just a hint of The Beatles in their melodies. I think the best thing about Neil Finn and the gang (but mainly Neil Finn) is that their writing style was interesting and on this particular album they deal with a few of the darker aspects of life, it was a big leap in that sense from their debut album a few years prior. 'I Feel Possessed', 'Into Temptation' and the beautiful 'Better be home soon' are my favourites on this, really enjoyed the re visit. I haven't heard either of their most recent albums (Time on Earth 2007 and Intriguer 2010) but I'd be keen to hear your thoughts if you have? How do they hold up?
