Product Description

The first 7 Worlds Collide album, a collection of amazing musical talents from across the globe in aid of Medicin Sans Frontiers, was a unique live performance, fusing the varied talents of a stellar cast across a range of cover versions to create a series of shows that culminated in the live album of the same name. Seven years after that project, instigator Neil Finn has upped the ante with the new 7 Worlds Collide project. The Sun Came Out -- a double album of original songs created and recorded by many of the original cast alongside notable new additions in an intense three weeks in his native New Zealand. This time the beneficiaries of this album will be Oxfam. Familiar faces from the original album abound, Johnny Marr, Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway of Radiohead but this album, first and foremost presents the listener with new songs rather than interpretations of old favourites. The Sun Came Out also features a whole host of new guest talents such as KT Tunstall and Wilco and heart stopping firsts, including Phil Selway’s songwriting and vocal debut as well as dream collaborations such as those between Johnny Marr and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy; and KT Tunstall and Neil Finn.

This album contains a collection of some of my favourite artists, including a couple of people I'd never heard of before.
After Neil's '7 Worlds Collide' venture I was really looking forward to hearing what the 'gang' could produce in terms of new music.

On first listen two tracks which really stood out for me were Don McGlashan's 'Girl make your own mind up' and Phil Selways 'The ties that bind'.
Also, the Johnny Marr track 'Run in the Dust', contains one of Johnny's best vocal's, is it just me, or is there something Lennon'esq in his vocal delivery(?)

It's not the easiest album to initially connect with, but I think when you do, it will become a firm favourite on the stereo.
The quality and breadth of songs on offer are really outstanding, more so when you think it was written/recorded in just a three week period.
More of a mellow 'Desert Sessions'?

Once again Neil and co. have produced a cracking album, this time using all new material.
A slow burner which I'm sure will reward well into the future.

Neil Finn is the most underatted amazing musicians of the latter part of the last and this century,
Penning many timeless classics from the days of Split Enz and "i got You" to the feel good tracks of the Amazing Crowded House with tracks such as weather with you and four seasons in one day., but there are many strings to Neils Bow and as a well known and loved artist that when he wanted to do a charity cd he had all the names wanting to be part of it,
so over a couple of weeks over christmas they threw together one of the best compilation cds I have ever heard..

this album so deserves many gold stars for its eclectic mix of styles and voice and Like my Fellow Frenz stated it
"So my Frenz, give this one a try...at 50p a track and with all proceeds going to OXFAM you can't go wrong"

I bought this after hearing the song "Too Blue" on the radio, and being a Finn Bros, KT Tunstall and Bic Runga fan I was curious about the rest of the material. It's an eclectic album with a lot of variation between song styles, though a more cohesive sound to the production which helps gel it together. It's unlikely that you'd love every track on the album as it's so wide ranging, but it's pretty certain if you are a Finn devotee you will enjoy most of them. The standout tracks for me are the aforementioned "Too Blue", the KT Tunstall led "Hazel Black" and the Neil and Sharon duet "Little By Little". Junior Finns Liam and Elroy appear too (and Liam sounds so like his dad you won't notice it's not him!) All in all, an easy to listen to album with a lot of variety.

Great album, but a little irritated I purchased digitally before realizing that it's not complete - it's missing the KT Tunstall tracks. This should be noted as an incomplete album.

Firstly - Robin, I think your inability to find anything you like amongst the vast selection of songs here says more about you than it does about the album. And to say you've not got your money's worth when you've given to charity and got an album in return is, to put it very mildly, utterly mean-spirited and shameful. It's like putting money in a charity box in a pub and then wanting it back because you don't like the taste of the beer.

Moving on....it is worth pointing out that this is not a Neil Finn album. Yes, he appears on it, sings some of the songs, wrote some of them and it was recorded at his studio with guests he invited to help - but the sum of the parts is far more than that. All of the people who helped make this record are incredibly talented and were able to throw together a collection of very different but very catchy songs in just 3 weeks. For the full effect you really need the double CD version but the single CD contains the choice cuts.

It is fair to say that if you like Neil Finn, Wilco, KT Tunstall and Radiohead you'll find something to appeal to you here. You'll also encounter songs by some of the stars of the New Zealand music business - Don McGlashan, Bic Runga, Liam Finn and Tim Finn. Beyond that, it is the collaborative cauldron that produces such an eclectic mix of sounds and part of the listening experience is to hear how, for example, Ed O'Brien adds his atmosphere to a song and thus transforms it, or how, for example, Jeff Tweedy's guitar solo style really lifts another song to new heights.

All in all, this is a great little project and music-lovers able to appreciate the art of musical creation and collaboration will especially enjoy this. Anyone who likes a good tune will enjoy it too. Above all, and most importantly, money from the sales of this album goes to Oxfam and that is reason enough to buy it.
