We gave it a B+

Crowded House’s 2007 reunion CD failed to reestablish their superstar status — a relief, one suspects, to Neil Finn, who never seemed cut out for the big time. But the House head honcho proved he was still a classy, clever tunesmith, and does so again here on Intriguer. ”Twice if You’re Lucky” is a hummable peach, while ”Isolation” builds from spare lament to riff-fueled freak-out. B+
