Crowded House has been a personal favorite since their debut, and the show I witnessed on that tour, in Atlanta, Georgia in 1987 still ranks among the best concerts I’ve ever seen. After a hiatus during which Neil Finn released several excellent solo albums the band reunited in 2007 and recently issued Intriguer, their second disc since regrouping.
They’re currently touring North America to promote the new disc, which is another great, shimmering set of pop tunes that ought to fit easily into a discography which includes classics such as “Don’t Dream It’s Over”, “Fall At Your Feet” and “Take The Weather With You”.
Check out www.crowdedhouse.com for the scoop on the new disc plus a link to get it digitally for as little as $7.98.
