EDITORS’ NOTES

Neil Finn didn’t create Crowded House’s third and most rewarding album on his own, instead co-writing this lushly adventurous set with his brother (and former Split Enz foil) Tim. Woodface follows the lead of The Beatles and Beach Boys at their most psychedelic, expanding pop music’s range with bold sonic and lyrical details. While “Fall at Your Feet” is a timeless ballad as good as any found on the band’s hit-stacked 1986 debut, Woodface’s stranger turns foretell the proliferation of dreamy, obtuse indie rock. Every song is a layer cake of mesmerizing melodies.
