The first song sets a note of determinedness with "Couldn't Be Done" followed by melodical "Still the Song" alas, too short, like many of George Harrison's own works. "Astounding Moon" is thought provoking as it looks up at the nighttime sky in wonder. These first three tracks really play as the heart and soul of this album until you get down to what the second half has to offer. "Salt to the Sea" is a melancholic kind of story where Tim Finn stops off to contemplate life, and a journey, until you get to hopeful "Horizon".Read more ›
I have been a "Finnatic" since 1982 and I would put this album up against any of his brother's (Neil) work. I'm looking forward to Neil's upcoming release as it (if it is as good), the recent "Everyone Is Here" and this CD would be the ultimate hat trick!!
Buy "Imaginary Kingdom" and see what music is all about.
I always have a soft spot for Tim Finn. Split Enz toured my university campus(La Trobe Bundoora Melbourne)in my first year there and I have never forgotten the experience. I've enjoyed a number of Tim's solo outings over the years particulalry the now impossibly hard to get 'Big Canoe' (great songs). So it was a delight to discover something new.
My first impressions were of mild disappointment. I guess the music felt a little 'old school', a little predictable, a little lacking in energy...but then by the third listen it began to unpack more in my head. I heard more, enjoyed more and found the inevitable 3am dancing music in my head as the clear sign of good work.
It's now into it's second week in the car. I'm not over it yet. I'm finding my way into the subtlety I missed the first couple of times through and I'm glad I made the investment.

Tim Finn's solo output has been uneven. Some of his releases have been just OK, while others have been models of the form, the very best of pop music. Read morePublished on January 24, 2011 by Music maven
This is definitely one of Tims best solo records, very melodic and catchy. It deff has a early SPLIT ENZ feel for all you old time fans. Read morePublished on December 14, 2010 by Ralph Costa
