He's put out a lot of good singles, although most of the albums he's been on have had a fair amount of average material (The' Dudes' excellent "Where Are The Boys?" and his own "Lament for the Numb" - for which he borrowed some of the Attractions off Elvis Costello) are the only real exceptions). On "Twist", one of his lesser albums, he borrowed a couple of the Mutton Birds off Don McGlashan, and both Finns off Crowded House; the line-up on this CD was: Dave Dobbyn - vocals, guitars, piano, some other keyboards and noise; Neil Finn - guitars, backing vocals, piano, optigan (whatever the hell that is), some other keyboards and noise; Alan Gregg - bass; Ross Burge - drums; and Tim Finn - backing vocals, percussion and vibe. Tchad Blake also gets credit for "noise", which may just be someone in the team trying to be "cute" (he was this album's producer).
So why am I choosing something off this album? Because it's a bloody great song. Language isn't one of his best known songs, but it was a decently popular single in its day and... well, I'm a bit of a sucker for songs that start off good and develop into something huge (see also The Terminals' Vertigo).
