Crowded House’s sixth album Intriguer

Last month Crowded House released their sixth full length album, Intriguer, recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand, during the spring and summer of 2009. Produced by Jim Scott (Wilco), Intriguer is melodically less withdrawn than Neil Finn’s solo endeavors and ultimately feels like the first real Crowded House album in ages. Finn is still a master of hook and emotion whether it be the straight forward talk of Van Gogh on “Amsterdam”, the breezy reflective island feel of “Either Side of the World”, or the back to basics solitude and expansion of “Falling Down.”  Nice.
