Try Whistling This is Neil Finn's first solo album after the breakup of Crowded House. It features collaborators such as Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil), Marius de Vries (Bjork), Nigel Godrich (Radiohead) and many others.
"When Neil Finn closed the doors on Crowded House, all signs seemed to point to a more experimental direction for future solo releases; even the title of his first solo album, Try Whistling This, implies a reaction against his reputation for well-crafted, highly melodic songs. However, from the opening track, the light and breezy 'Last One Standing,' Finn puts all fears to rest... Try Whistling This features some of Finn's best work yet, and in a nearly flawless catalog like his, that's quite impressive." -- allmusic guide
