From Brad1770
I received this Record for Christmas 1980 & it was one of the first Records I ever owned. And naturally I listened to it to death , even when the inevitable scratches and jumps appeared ( do you ever hear a song today that used to “skip” due to a record crack back in the day & you still hear the skip part ? ). Now the interesting thing about this particular record was it was a True Colours Laser Etched Editon meaning when you held the LP up to the light you could see lots if cool colours shimmering. This was the album that broke Split Enz from a quirky NewZeland group to mainstream stardom in Australia on the back of the number 1 smash I Got You “ which remains an all time fave song, ONLY Neil Finn can pull this song off in the correct vocal harmonies. It’s very difficult to replicate. Unfortunately True Colours is not a consistent album with many filler moments including 2 instrumentals . Their follow up album “ Corroboree” in 1981 is a much better release but that my friends is a story for another day.....

True Colours isn’t my favourite Split Enz album; the lack of detail and personality compared to some of their other work makes it a middle of the pack Split Enz album, and the hits are its most notable feature. But it provided a group that needed success with record sales, and the hits hold up well.

A shining, wonderful album. A personal discovery for me as a kid, and a private treasure.

If the Enz were New Zealand's version of The Beatles then this is surely their finest moment with commercial sensibilities that outweigh the artistic achievement of 'Mental Notes'.
