  1. Through it all, Finn's durable songcraft never fails to enthrall.
  2. The House head honcho proved he's still a classy, clever tunesmith, and does so again here on Intriguer.
  3. Intriguer will have to stand or fall on its own merits. If there is any justice in the world it will be a bestseller.
  4. As promised, Intriguer is indeed Crowded House with a fresh layer of wallpaper. The thing is, the group has always been timeless enough not to need it.
  5. Despite the anthems being on a tight leash, repeated listens reveal this to be one of their best albums.
  6. It's a great album in the classic mold, one that rewards you.
  7. Who could of predicted, then, that Intriguer would be his best work in nearly two decades? [Aug 2010, p.116]

    I love Neil Finn, but this isn't my favorite of his music. Not to say I hate it--Twice If You're Lucky and Amsterdam are 2 very goodI love Neil Finn, but this isn't my favorite of his music. Not to say I hate it--Twice If You're Lucky and Amsterdam are 2 very good songs--but the album as a whole just doesn't stick with me like every other Crowded House or Neil Finn album does. Expand
