TVD's Daily Wax | Crowded House "Time on Earth"

It's just not lived in enough I think to have its tracks considered for tomorrow's Crowded House Top Ten. It's a fine return to form and I'm sure after a few more bottles of wine and some late night spins it'll walk its way into the favourites lane. But for now, it's merely a wonderful and welcome return. And as tomorrow's list will reveal, Finn & Co. aren't the sunny and breezy little outfit that much of the first LP and 'Woodface' lead one to believe...there are some seriously dark undercurrents at work texturally, sonically, and lyrically--and after the death of original drummer Paul Hester, that tone is front and center here. Absences do indeed have shapes.
