Finn Brothers is a modest, understated album that successfully combines the conventional beauty we've come to expect from Neil's melodic work with Crowded House and the eccentric charm typical of Tim's edgy post-art rock Split Enz. So where the warbling synth of "Eyes of the World" is all new wave Tim, the piano balladry of "Where Is My Soul" reeks of popster Neil. "Only Talking Sense," meanwhile, succeeds in combining Tim's angular minimalism with Neil's plaintive croon. But just when we begin to think we've heard it all before, the Finn brothers give us the bossa nova bounce of "Mood Swinging Man" and the tango sway of "Paradise"--evidence, perhaps, the lounge revival has reached down under. --Roni Sarig

The Finn Brothers are a joy to hear and a concert featuring either or both is not to be missed. When the two of them are on stage together, it is reassuring that true brotherly love is more than just a phrase spouted by cynics and hucksters. In all fairness, not every item that the Finns touch is spun gold, but time spent in their worlds are journeys that produce their own joys as you take the time to examine each offering in turn.
I had the extreme pleasure of witnessing Richard Thompson open solo acoustically for Crowded House (with Tim and Neil) as they toured America in support of the Woodface CD. This was at Bogart's, an old Cincinnati (OH) theatre space. Actually, it was the ideal setting for intimacy of presentation to a decent-sized crowd of adoring fans. Even though Tim left the tour shortly after this concert, because he did not feel necessary to the band, I do not whole-heartedly concur. This disc and any other on which both brothers appear together demonstrates that it was not Crowded House that needed Tim, it is Neil who needs and desires that he and his brother work together. So obtain a copy of this disc and enjoy, then go find the rest of their catalogs.

Lush and gorgeous songwriting, as always from the Finns. I can't get enough of their music, and happily snapped up this CD when I saw it! I'm absolutely loveing it.Published on November 20, 2013 by E. Lloyd
This is one of those recordings that is hard to place in time and style; it's at turns moody, raucous, humorous. After nearly 15 years, it still holds up very well. Read morePublished on September 23, 2010 by Peacedotnik

I bought this CD on the strength of my Crowded House and Split Enz purchases, and liked it. I think some of the other reviewers are overly effusive--this is not a ground-breaking... Read morePublished on January 22, 2007 by Froggy Fan
