After gradually assuming a front-and-center role in brother Tim's band Split Enz, native New Zealander and transplanted Australian Neil Finn moved firmly into a leadership position with Crowded House, a trio whose debut album appeared in 1986. Slightly more mainstream than his new-wavy Split Enz work, the record nonetheless evinced signs of darkness ("Don't Dream It's Over", "World Where You Live", "Hole in the River") among more chipper numbers such as "Something So Strong". Often gorgeous, Crowded House may have been the group's biggest release, owing to the success of "Don't Dream" and "Something". --Rickey Wright

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.
I have been addicted ever since. And it has been most exciting watching Neil Finn grow and to be there as new material comes out. This first one was a Godsend to me. Only a few bands in the mid to late 80's appealed to me. Synth pop and Hair bands were all over radio and T.V. Along came this wonderful album, and I was greatly surprised to find so many good songs here. This one is what I call a "Perfect CD", in which I don't have to skip any songs. It's great from beginning to end. My fav's on here are "World Where You Live" "Mean To Me" "That's What I Call Love" and the 2 singles. Mitchell Froom produces and adds great touches but it's Neil's songs that make it a really great album.
If you are new to Crowded House and their memorable contributions to the pop and soft rock genre of the 80's and 90's, then this is a great place to start. However, "Temple of Low Men" may be better as I think it is the pinnacle of their work, and a fantastic introduction to the band.

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.Published on April 22 2013 by Barrett Clare-Johnson
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,... Read morePublished on June 21 2004 by WILLIE A YOUNG II
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. Read morePublished on May 27 2004 by G. Robinson
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. Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2004 by Neil
