More experimental and musically varied than any of their previous releases, Together Alone
finds Crowded House
branching out into traditional Maori music and heavy guitars, as well as the shining pop songcraft that is Neil Finn
's trademark. Picking up a new guitarist and adding the production skills of ex-Killing Joke
, Crowded House
energize their sound without losing sight of Finn
's classic pop songwriting, as "Locked Out" and "Distant Sun" prove.
