Neil Finn: Former Crowded House Frontman

Bill DeYoung, Goldmine, August 1998

THERE'S A lush, green exotic-ness to Neil Finn's songs, as if they were created in some kind of hothouse rain forest where only the most beautiful flowers get pollinated. Ever since he turned out 'Message to My Girl' and 'One Step Ahead' as a member of Split Enz, Finn's songs have had a special and somewhat other-wordly feel to them.
