Crowded House sang songs that related to their time. Yet, the songs still have appeal for today. A must have classic for any music collection.

The first time I heard Neil Finn's incredible voice was in the early 80's during his tenure with Split Enz, and while race has never mattered to me when it comes to music, something genuine and earthy about his voice just touched me instantly. When Crowded House released their sterling debut in the Summer of '86, I was thrilled to hear his voice in a new setting and more than pleased with the direction of his writing and sound. My favorite track here is the classic "The World Where You Live", one of the most flawless pop songs ever recorded and a perfect showcase for Finn's gorgeous high tenor. The group's early hits are all here and overall this stands as their most cohesive album (next to '91's "Woodface")and is a must have for any comprehensive collection. Give it a spin, this boy's got soul!

I won't comment on the music except to say that it is a great disc. Of the 100 or so DVD-A titles I own I would say that this is the best sounding one. Very analog and pleasing to the ears.

Enough of a pop sound on the singles to sneak into "Adult Contemporary" radio formats, there is much more to the songs on this album than what is on the surface. If you haven't listened to these guys in a while, listen again.

I think I could safely say this is their best album, most popular anyway. In fact for the casual fan, this might have all the hits you know, including "Something So Strong", "World Where You Live", and the huge hit "Don't Dream It's Over". The only thing missing for me is "Locked Out". But of course this isn't the "Greatest Hits", it's just a great album. Other good songs are "Can't Carry On" and "Walk Away", but they're all good really. Overall, this self-titled debut was a great start for them, and it should be for you too.

Neil Finn's first album after his Split Enz days is one that, despite the fact that it has dated from being produced in the late-80's, is still a great collection of wonderful pop tunes. Neil's group Crowded House was responsible for some of the best post-Beatles pop, and one can see the beginnings of that here. With songs like "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Hole in the River" Finn shows his knack for melding McCartney-quality melodies with a Lennon-ish flair for words. The group's sound, though, is a little brighter and more jangle-popish than it would be in later releases.
The group would later build on the foundation laid forth in this album in the terrific follow up albums Temple of Low Men and Woodface. This is not a bad place to start getting into the group, though, because this album has Crowded House's most well-known songs.
Highlights? "Don't Dream It's Over", the House's best known song (ask anyone and they can sing you the "hey now, hey now" chorus, whether they know who sang it or not) and one of the 10 best of the 80s; "Something so Strong", a glorious straightahead pop song, also known as Crowded House's other US hit; and "World Where You Live", a template for Neil Finn's light/dark songwriting style.
All in all, a strong debut for a group that more people should discover. And if I ever hear you call this group a "two-hit
wonder", I'll puke.

The first time I heard the whole CD, it was totally cool. But the song that I love hearing over and over again is Don't dream it's over. And I would love to thank them for singing it.

Crowded House's self-titled debut was its commercial and artistic masterpiece - Beatlesque pop-rock with modern production values. The haunting "Don't Dream It's Over" is one of the best songs of the decade, "Something So Strong" is a great little pop-rock nugget, and several of the album tracks ("Now We're Getting Somewhere") are of equal quality. If you didn't experience this album in the '80s, now's your chance to correct that mistake.
