IMPRESSIONS Neil Finn. Truth will rise in the morning Is this crime really happening? I guess we can't keep the world away From sinking under pressure. Smoke drifting up To the dizzy heights Where the elevator won't come down And the ceiling cracks like a treasure map The mosquito’s buzzing round, round, round Help me make up a new sound. It's alright in my room The worlds moving at a different pace Ah the buzz it never stops If you don't like the groove well call the cops. On halloween, it's halloween And they don't make a sound ‘Cause i don't like the song they're playing.
Dizzy Heights is the third solo studio album from Finn, following the 1998 release Try Whistling This and 2001 release One Nil (released as One All in the USA).

Neil Finn makes pop music, and good pop music at that. He can't help it. It is too deeply ingrained in him and he is too adept at it to do otherwise. Finn makes the prettiest records when he is with Crowded House; they are super-melodic, rich in pop history, full-sounding and detailed - sometimes to the point of pristine - and so easy to like that it's a surprise when you find someone who does not enjoy them.
Neil Finn - Dizzy Heights. When the video clip for 'DIVEBOMBER', the taster track from Neil Finns' new album landed on the net on November 1st 2013, my reaction at first viewing was, good ol' Neil has got his prog-sox on again - in a big way. LESTER RECORDS: LRNF0011CDD Released February 2014. Album closer LIGHTS OF NEW YORK finds Neil at the piano, singing a lullaby as much to a time as a place. In true FINN family style, his partner Sharon, who plays a mean bass, and sons Liam and Elroy, with the odd guests. Need we be surprised? It is a challenging and brave album for an artist of his standing.
