Crowded House - Woodface

A Simply Vinyl Winner

  (Item #: crowdwoodf_simply_vinyl) 



Sonic Grade: B (or better!)

Woodface easily meets the definition of a Desert Island Disc. I've played it hundreds of times and enjoy it more with each play, which insures that on my desert island I'll never get sick of it. To my way of thinking it contains some of the most original, melodic, hook-laden, sophisticated popular music recorded in the last twenty years. Astonishingly (to me, anyway) it didn't even chart here in the states, a sad commentary about the state of the music biz, a state that only seems to worsen as the decades roll on.

Crowded House - Woodface

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: crowdwoodf_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This WHITE HOT STAMPER Woodface fulfills the promise of this extraordinarily well-recorded album beyond all expectations. We have an expression that we reserve for this kind of record -- Master Tape Sound. When you drop the needle on a record this good you feel like you just threaded up the master tape and hit play. The effect so totally immerses you in the musical experience that you forget you're listening to a record at all.

Crowded House - Crowded House

Our Shootout Winner from 2014

  (Item #: crowdcrowd_2014) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This original domestic pressing offers killer Hot Stamper sound for both sides of Crowded House's wonderful debut.

Musically side one is absolutely brilliant from first note to last. Crowded House may have wanted to be the New Beatles, but those are some pretty big shoes to fill. They fell a bit short -- who can compete with The Beatles? -- but in their heyday, 1985-1993, they were better at making intelligent, original, melody-driven pop than practically any other group I was listening to. If you like the Art Rock of the '70s, this album shows that smart, adult rock music could still be made a decade or more later.

What To Listen For

  (Item #: crowdcrowd_wtlf) 



What to Listen For, you ask?

Number one: Too many instruments jammed into too little space in the upper midrange. When the tonality is shifted-up, even slightly, or there is too much compression, there will be too many elements -- voices, guitars, drums -- vying for space in the upper area of the midrange, causing congestion and a loss of clarity. This is especially noticeable on the second track of side one, Now We're Getting Somewhere.
