Big Canoe
Tim Finn
“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. Big Canoe also marks a welcome reunion between Finn and ex-Enz collaborator Phil Judd, who contributes sitar and rhythm guitar to a couple of tracks” (Woodstra).
