Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the sixth album from the colossally popular Australian band and the follow-up to 2006's Time On Earth. 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.

Customer Reviews

This album is a must-have for anyone who appreciates music.
Fernando Brandt
In comparison to CH's last album (the excellent Time on Earth), _Intriguer_ seems like much more of a group effort.
Kevin Caffrey
There are songs on this album that I think are amazing; but overall, it was a bit uneven.
Gary

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.

While I am glad to have ANY new material by Neil and the boys, I am dissapointed by the album as a whole (though do enjoy the DVD performances etc..). One of the main Product Reviews says this is a much more coherent effort and sounds more like a 'ban effort' than Time On Earth, I heartily dissagree. TOE had much better melodies, tunes, avante garde qualities, and so on - every song interesting and listeneable and structured well. While there are a few gems on Intriguer, the 3 cuts which follow the opener Saturday Sun are much too slow and uninteresting. And slow is not the real problem, as I really enjoy some of Neil's slow songs. Also, and this is not to rip on CH's new drummer, but just an honest critique - the drumming sounds exactly the same the whole album through (and that goes for TOE album too). He needs to 'tune' and change up the drum sounds! Subdued is one thing, but good drummers know how to change the 'dynamics' of their instrument and adjust playing style to create new sounds and atmospheres.
No, this sounds like a sub-par 'Neil' album, and not a 'band' album. Worth owning for the gems, but does not get played too often. Still love you Neil!

Granted I'm a crowded house fan, but Time on Earth didn't do anything for me. I thought this album was on par with the earlier albums and with Neil's solo work (One Nil especially), which I think is absolutely amazing. I just saw them in concert and the songs live were even better, which is not often the case.

If you like CH this is a must buy IMHO.

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!
