Produced by chief songwriter Neil Finn with Jim Scott, who produced the 7 Worlds Collide sessions, it sees the band introducing new ideas into their classic Pop-Rock sound. It features the web single "Saturday Sun" and includes musical contributions from Jon Brion, Lisa Germano and Finn's son Liam.

Nearly 25 years since the self-titled, Crowded House, Neil Finn has solidly establish himself as a songwriting institution of the South Pacific whose art is enjoyed globally. Frustrating for many in the USA, is that Finn has never received the recognition stateside that he has received overseas. Regardless, if he is making music with family (brother, Tim Finn Anthology: North South East West or more recently son, Liam Finn I'll Be Lightning) or if he is practicing his trade within the beloved Crowded House, he practices the art of songwriting in a nearly unparalleled manner and has garnished the praise of fans around the world and other notable names in popular music (Sheryl Crow, Eddy Vedder, Dixie Chicks, etc.)

The hardest part of providing a critique of Intriguer is considering it on its own merits. Ignoring his great work with Split Enz (20th Century Masters: Millennium Collection (Reis), after five Crowded House albums, two Finn Brother albums (most recently Everyone Is Here and two solo outings, his catalog is so developed that its easy to say that Intriguer does not measure up. It would also be a bit short sided and wrong.

This album, like others penned by Finn, will not likely win over listeners with a single or even a single play. However, it likely will bait you for a second consideration.

Finally and with little fanfare, "Intriguer" is here. Having seen two of the shows on the recent tour, there is no doubt that CH has gotten better with age. It will be criminal if this music is not heard by all. Many of the songs were previewed by the band in shows in America two years ago. As a collection, the songs are outstanding, well crafted, hooks galore, great vocals and the band sounds great. Neil Finn remains an amazing song writer and his voice, as he ages, has gained such depth and beauty. My only complaints are the length of the album (10 songs) and how many great songs that we heard on the tour, did not make the cut. That being said, Intriguer is outstanding. "Twice if Your Lucky" would have been a hit in the 60's, 70's and 80's but won't cause a blip on the charts today. "Even If" is one of most beautiful and endearing songs that Mr. Finn has ever written, and that is saying something. "Amsterdam" is remarkable in so many ways: in some ways it hints at what the Beatles would sound like today, great chord changes,lilting themes and dramatic vocals. The whole of "Intriguer" leaves the listener wanting more!

On the Deluxe version, the second disc has live recordings of most of "Intriguer" which are beautifully realized songs and some other goodies. Well worth the investment.

CH/NF fans understand the remarkable body of work that he has created. "Intriguer" bolsters Neil Finn's legacy as one of the best song writers and singers of our generation adn Crowded House as at the top of the pop music talent.

"Intriguer is another great album in the CH collection. The songs will endure and grow better with age. Try to catch the current tour for the chance to see a great live band. Do not miss them or Intriguer.

I am a huge fan of Crowded House and especially of Neil Finn's solo work (huge, HUGE, HUGE fan). But this CD left me very dissapointed. What happened?

Crowded House claim to fame is taking pop melodies and infusing them with insightful lyrics. With this incarnation, the lyrics are still somewhat insightful but the tune is no longer happy-pop but rather dreary, slit-my-wrist variety. I think Neil has been listening to too much dreary Brit music (Brit music goes with the weather but a Kiwi should never be dreary. Never. Ever). Put down the Coldplay and Radiohead, Neil, and come back from the dark side!

When the Austrailian rock band Crowded House debuted in 1985, they had two big hits- "Don't Dream It's Over" as well as the optimistic uptempo track "Something So Strong". Over the next few years, they made some of their best albums- even if they fell out of the public's consciousness in the States. They released their most critically acclaimed projects to date: The 1988 sophomore album "Temple Of Low Men" as well as 1993's "Together Alone". Shortly after the release of "Together Alone", drummer Paul Hester left the band- but then returned a year later to play at their "Farewell To The World" concerts. The concert was a finale of sorts as the band wanted to go their separate ways. Lead singer Neil Finn was concentrating on a solo career as well as wanting to work with his brother Tim on the project The Finn Brothers. Almost a decade after the band's dissolution, original drummer Paul Hester committed suicide. The remaining members of Crowded House reformed the band with new drummer Matt Sherrod (best known for producing "This House" and "Tender Kisses" for Tracie Spencer) and they went to work on their next album. In 2007, they released their first album in almost fifteen years "Time On Earth" on Dave Matthews' ATO Records. While the album was critically acclaimed, the album recieved little to no promotion. As a result, they left ATO for the newly resurrected Fantasy Records.

1n 2010, Crowded House released their latest effort "Intriguer"- an album that shows them experimenting with different sounds throughout the album. The album was produced by Neil Finn with Jim Scott (who also produced Robert Randolph & The Family Band as well as the Dixie Chicks side project Court Yard Hounds). The recording starts off with the uptenpo "Saturday Sun", a song about a man who has lost his mind.
