The first proper Enz album features the band at its eccentric best, Mental Notes is completely non-commercial art-rock filled with ambitious arrangements and slightly disturbing themes courtesy of the Phil Judd and Tim Finn songwriting partnership. Finn's bittersweet crooning perfectly compliments Judd's madman persona on tracks like "Stranger than Fiction." Although the album would be repackaged, renamed, and rerecorded in years to come, the band would never again produce anything like it. A favorite with fans. * * * *
