Neil and Tim Finn, two of the three remaining members of Crowded House, played a gig at London’s Royal Albert Hall the other night, as described by the Financial Times.

Key quote: < And so the masters of catchy tunes and feelgood chord changes found themselves in improbably melancholy mood, one that Neil Finn in particular managed to shake off only during an extended and poignant encore. For the rest of the time, he looked listless and uninspired, while brother Tim took over most of the big stage numbers.>>

The encore was, fittingly enough, “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
