5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Woodface By Far, August 26, 2004
This review is from: Everyone Is Here (Audio CD)
This album is a miracle. Although Neil, Tim and Mitchell Froom team for the first time since Woodface, there's only a vague resemblance to that hyperproduced international hit. In the past Neil and Tim's collaborations tended to cancel out each's edginess. Let's face it, Neil's Fall at Your Feet, As Sure as I Am, Whispers and Moans along with Four Seasons in One Day (Tim only contributed some backing vocals) are the best stuff on Woodface. Chocolate Cake, It's Only Natural, Tall Trees, and that song with Tim on the piano I always skip are less successful

This time out - the edginess stays in, and the result are songs that are more like the VASTLY underrated Together Alone and Try Whistling This with a touch of Crowded House. Neil's songwriting dominates largely and it's slightly more focussed than on One All. The live tracking starting with dueling acoustic guitars on most tracks brings an energy and cohesion from the 7 Worlds Collide and other recent tours into the studio. The album sounds a bit like Neil's West 57th DVD. Live, immediates yet polished, professional in sound. Matt Chamberlain and especially Sebastian Steinberg are a tight rhythm section - better than Crowded House's.

There's not a bad song in the bunch. Nothing Wrong With You, Anything Can Happen, Homesick, the AMAZING Disembodied Voices, Part of Me Part of You, A Life Between Us, and Gentle Hum are my favorites at the moment...Edible Flowers is ...well...really growing on me.

Album of the Year
