7 WORLDS COLLIDE Sun Came [...].
WHAT do you get when you mix members of Radiohead, The Smiths, Crowded House and Wilco in a New Zealand studio? A fascinating, if schizophrenic album. There are moments of songwriting beauty here, not least from ringleader Neil Finn and the excellent Jeff Tweedy, but it's the oddities for which this will be remembered. Radiohead drummer Phil Selway strums along to his own crooned vocal on Ties That Bind Us, while KT Tunstall and New Zealander Bic Runga duet on the rollicking Black Silk Ribbon. At 24 songs, it's overdone, but still enjoyable. JD
