Tim FinnThis is one of an elite handful of items to make my DNP Album list, and with good reason – it’s bloody fantastic. The ten songs on here are all safe in the hands of Tim Finn, and the album was produced by Mitchell Froom, who also produced the first three Crowded House albums. His expertise and Tim’s performances are a perfect match, and the songs aren’t bad either. The exotic southern Pacific and Indian percussion and instrumentation are used just enough to give this album a texture unlike anything I’ve ever 4 out of 4heard before. Listen close for “Tears Inside”, “Crescendo”, “Not Even Close”, “How’m I Gonna Sleep” and “Young Mountain”. And the other half of the album isn’t bad either! Highest recommendations – one of the finest pop/rock albums I’ve ever heard.
