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.
