The second incarnation of a Neil Finn side project, Seven Worlds Collide is out with a two disc set of 24 songs written, sung and played by a remarkable collection of players from all members of Neil Finn's family (yes Tim on board) (all exceptionally talented), Wilco, Radiohead plus the great Johnny Marr, Don McGlashan (Mutton Birds), K.T. Tunstall, Bic Runga and others. A great collection of well crafted songs, beautifully played and joyfully executed. Neil gathered this talent for an"Oxfam" benefit. Look for a dvd of the three concerts the put on, at some point. Neil is always at his best when collaborating and he gets his fill here. Lots of highlights including the playful "Little by Little" sung by Neil and his wife Sharon; the Phil Selway songs (suprisingly good voice) and the K.T. Sunstall songs, but there is little filler over these to albums. Put them on and enjoy. The quality of the songs here bodes very well for the upcoming Crowded House album this winter. Can't wait. In the meantime, we get this treasure trove of songs.

Don't know why Neil continues the slump. There is too much material here and not enough hooks for me. I love most of his stuff, but this just didn't hold my attention. I don't care much for the other songwriters involved either, at least not in this style. It's probably better than the latest "Kitchen sink" though, which I had a hard time getting through once!

7 Worlds Collide is a collaboration of numerous musical talents including Neil Finn, Tim Finn, members of Wilco, members of Radiohead, Bic Runga, KT Tunstall, Glenn Richards of Augie March, Don McGlashan and last but by no means least, Johnny Marr. There are also Finn family members chipping in as well. All I can say is that this is a huge surprise to me. A project on such a massive scale shouldn't work. Amazingly it works very very well. The songs are all of the highest quality. I especially love 'Too Blue' by Johnny Marr and Jeff Tweedy. It has a Nashville/Motown/Phil Spector-ish feel to it. It reminds me of 'Yes' by McAlmont and Butler as well. It's a very strong number. I also love 'Long Time Gone' by Don McGlashan. Tweedy of Wilco's 'You Never Know' is an all time classic. It reminds me of Travelling Wilburys. I am still listening to the whole album and I am enjoying the majority of the songs. Phil Selway, the Radiohead drummer, is a major surprise as well. He sounds not unlike Nick Drake on his two self penned numbers. What an exciting project. Great to hear a supergroup that actually works as well as the sum of the parts !

First off, Neil Finn is one of the greatest of the artists, songwriters, musicians, vocalists, etc. to come along in our lifetimes. I would hold him under the spotlight with the greatest of all time. This lark of creativity is one that sounds as fun to listen too as I'm sure it was to make. Have some friends come over with their families in tow for a couple of weeks and sit around and see what happens. You don't get a group of people this talented together under what turned out to be just the right vibe and not come away with something magical. This is the way music used to be made, real,talented, musicians in a room doing what they do best. On top of getting a great album, you are helping out Oxfam, which fights against global poverty. It's a win/win!

With so many talented stars writing, playing and performing on this disc, would you expect anything less in this second go-around with Neil Finn and his gang of musicians?

This benefits OXFAM and it turns nicely on the turntable with an interesting mix of music. I can't wait for Round Three. I'm not going to get into a individual track review, I'll leave that for you to judge. Just know, these guys continue to knock me out with talent, music and passion. You find yourself wanting it to never end and continue on.

Remember the heartbreak of Crowded House when they called it quits, then hearing they were coming back? The extended "Finn Family" shows first-rate, musical class and invites their friends to join the party. The musicians of the world should take note.

It has to be a passionate project for these folks to find a way to take off three weeks or so in their busy lives, trudge equipment and stuff to New Zealand and hang out and make music. Yes they do it for a living...it still takes the want and desire...and a great ringleader. We still have musicians who care enough. This one will take repeated listens to grow on you. Around the fifth spin it starts to click.

It's rare when heart & soul combine, as Neil, his family and friends (now, extended family) have really struck a nice chord.

These are the kind of folks you would be proud to call friends. This is music you can be proud to call your own, then share it with the world.
