Though Big Canoe reached number three on the New Zealand charts, it failed to become the international breakthrough that Finn or record company Virgin had hoped. In 1978 Tim sang lead vocals on Phil Manzanera's 1978 album K-Scope, an album that perfectly suited his vocal strengths. Phil had produced Split Enz's second album, Second Thoughts, a reworking of the original Mental Notes LP. During this time, Finn's focus also turned to soundtrack music, and he landed a few acting roles on-screen.
Big Canoe is the 1986 solo album released by former Split Enz frontman Tim Finn. Finn had won Australasian success with his debut solo album, Escapade in 1983, while still a member of his longtime band Split Enz. Finn left the band permanently in June 1984, to focus on a solo career, and the following year moved to London and began working on Big Canoe
Tim Finn teamed up with playwright Jeremy Brock for his second solo outing, Big Canoe. Although the collaboration is predictably ambitious - probably Finn's most ambitious since the early days of Split Enz - beneath all the overblown arrangements and slightly dated production lie some terrific songs. Material like "No Thunder No Fire No Rain," "Hyacinth," and "Carve You in Marble" deserves a better setting, but the album is still able to shine, and some minor flaws are forgivable, especially to diehard fans
