Crowded House: Whisky, Los Angeles CA
Bud Scoppa, L.A. Weekly, 22 September 1988
GOOD TUNES, good singin', good playin'. These are the seemingly modest virtues presented by Crowded House. But, as they amply demonstrated throughout their superb 16-song set — drawn in equal measure from their smash debut and the poor-selling follow-up Temple of Low Men — there's a great deal going on beneath the disarming surface of their music. The impromptu show revealed, with even more subtlety, economy and incisiveness than usual, the quality materials of which this house has been constructed.
