    Wasn't there a Split Enz thread here the other day?

    I was about to post to it. Because of that thread, I became curious, so I listened to True Colours online... and I liked it! "Shark Attack" is kind a meh punk-new wave thing, and "I Got You" is a BIT overrated, but "What's the Matter With You," "Double Happy," "I Hope I Never," and "Nobody Takes Me Seriously" are all fun numbers I was really grooving on upon the second listen. "What's the Matter With You" is a perfect simulacrum of a 60s British Invasion number, and I could imagine it being a hit in the sixties. I went and bought the album on Amazon immediately. "Missing Person" is also okay, and the momentum dies for me with "Poor Boy," but they're mostly still good.

    This is the second thread that's completely vanished on the forum; I can't remember what the first one was but it's frustrating.

    Here are two other threads that I found (one from 2 days ago):

    https://www.progressiveears.org/foru...plit-Enz-Songs
    https://www.progressiveears.org/foru...-PROG-New-Wave

    I love Split Enz! Some of their earliest albums even have prog overtones to them.

    Thanks! I swear I couldn't find that thread, and I even did a search for it.
