      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I have a natural suspicion of live recordings. They always give me the impression that the cool kids had a party and I was not invited. I hate the audience participation that you can't quite hear. I hate the fact that stuff happens on stage that is cut or rendered incomprehensible on the CD. However, Neil Finn and friends: 'Seven Worlds Collide' is a diamond in the rough. Where else would you hear Jonny Marr (The Smiths), Bic Runga (American Pie Soundtrack and a brilliant songsmith), The Brothers Finn, and Ed O'Brien (Radiohead) play the Smith's classic 'There is a light'? Certainly this rendition is far superior to the one I heard Morrisey perform at The Albert Hall in 2002. The rendition of 'Don't Dream It's Over' is stock Neil Finn material and more sincere than the contrived studio recordings Crowded House previously made. The final track 'Weather With You' is again, beautifully played by the ensemble. The song stands as a popular national anthem for many New Zealanders and is at once reflective, uplifting and innocent - suffice to say, its bloody good. However, this album is a useful and comfortable introduction to some of Neil Finn's later work from the albums 'Try Whistling This' and 'One Nil'. Neither album quite matches the inspired Crowded House albums 'Woodface' and 'Together Alone' but still proves that Finn is a capable composer. However, having heard this album I am convinced that Finn is best live - as an accomplished and touching musician. This is an excellent CD which celebrates sincere musicianship - past and present, and best of all it is also available on DVD.
