5.0 out of 5 stars Tim Finn Master Songwriter, 22 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good overview of Tim's career with Split Enz,solo and with Neil and some new songs.I would have chosen some others like Don't Bury my Heart and Carve You in Marble but the new version of So Deep is ok.Perhaps I would have given more emphasis to his earlier solo work.Include Many;s the Time and Protected off his self titled album/

This review is from: Part two (1991) (Audio CD)
The lp sounds very much in Jeff Lynne's ELO style which I like.The single Honest Men is very good and melodic.

One of Thea's best.Has classic single "You're the Radio" and great song and words "God's got nothing on you".A must buy for any fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair to maudlin, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cd from a legendary singer/songwriter is a disappointing effort compared to his earlier works but marks a radical departure to a more folky sound and improves towards the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blondie Hunter cd, 9 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Hunter (Audio CD)
This album was critically dismissed at the time of release as being a mish mash of styles and a sign of Blondie falling apart.However I always liked 'Island of Lost Souls' and when I saw it on Amazon reissued and cut price I thought I'd buy it and give it a chance.I am glad I did as it is a good'Blondie' album.War Child rocks and Firefly raps and fizzes.Perhaps this album palled compared to previous greats in critics eyes but I like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Biopic of Andy Kaufman:Man on the Moon, 24 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Man on the Moon [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
I was first interested in this film because of the REM connection in the song Man on the Moon.It is an offbeat film based on a wacky character but it is very entertaining.There is also a cd available of the music in the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wang Chung.Did the ice melt?, 12 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Warmer Side of Cool (Audio CD)
This cd is a much rockier,guitar based one than their synth based "Points on a Curve" but with still some good melodies.The first track "Believe in a new God "is a Standout.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Zealand All Stars, 17 Feb. 2011
I am a big fan of Tim Finn and Bic Runga but hadn't heard of Dave Dobyn but I enjoyed his songs.The three are represented wall and play good songs.The cd is a good memento for fans and new listeners as well and is a good price.
