    Dizzy Heights is a bold, wonderful affair. [Mar 2014, p.113]
  2. Feb 10, 2014
    The overall sense of experimentation arguably makes Dizzy Heights Finn’s most surprising and accomplished release since Crowded House’s Together Alone, the work of confident tunesmith daring to stretch himself.
  3. Feb 10, 2014
    It is a seamless blend of Finn's longstanding popcraft and latter-day adventure, and it satisfies on both counts.

    This potent return affirms Finn heeds his own advice. [Mar 2014, p.90]
  5. Feb 18, 2014
    Finn sounds best when Dizzy Heights is at its dizziest, when he has to completely rethink how his voice fits a song. On the other hand, he sounds slightly less engaged on the more straightforward tunes, which perhaps don’t offer the same heady challenges.
  6. Feb 13, 2014
    The former Split Enz and Crowded House frontman goes for the jugular by taking a chance with a delightfully fresh sound.
  7. Feb 10, 2014
    It just seems that Dizzy Heights is just Finn noodling about, unsure of what direction to take, and the whole deal feels painfully laborious.
