Editorial Reviews

In 2008 Neil Finn (Crowded House) gathered together musicians from across the globe in New Zealand: Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Phil Selway and Ed O Brien from Radiohead, Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coffin), Lisa Germano, KT Tunstall and Wilco to record an album of new songs in three weeks with proceeds going to Oxfam. The Sun Came out is a behind the scenes look as these amazing artists conceive, write, record, and perform the songs.

This is a great DVD about the making of the second 7 Worlds Collide project by Neil Finn, but the big question is the album was recorded in 2009, where has this set been? I wasn't that crazy about the CD, and still am not, but the DVD is a different story, the mix of Neil Finn, Wilco, Johnny Marr, and two members of Radiohead is fascinating to watch.

One can never go wrong with Neil Finn - anything that he touches is almost pure gold and this DVD proves it again and again. Later Split Enz? Two versions of Crowded House? Two albums with brother Tim? Two solo efforts? Pajama Club? All gold. And who else could pull something off like this, especially with Crowded House essentially known as one-hit wonders in the US with 1986's "Don't Dream Its Over"? To me, the Seven Worlds Collide projects are a testament to the genius of Neil Finn - and Jeff Tweedy in this documentary comes out and says it.

An interesting cast of characters, including left-overs from the first 7 Worlds Collide in 2001 (Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway, Lisa Germano, Soul Coughing's Sebastian Steinberg, and Johnny Marr), KT Tunstall, members of Wilco, wife Sharon, sons Liam and Elroy, Bic Runga and others, this documentary shows the songwriting process for a charity album for OXFAM, created in three weeks over Christmas in New Zealand in 2008 in Neil Finn's Roundhead Studios and home. Most of the documentary is shot in the studios, with songs intertwined with footage of the one-off concert that featured many of those songs written in that three week period of time. Neil is featured in this for sure, but the majority of the documentary shows others in the group writing songs.

The concert featured in the DVD bonus is the 2001 Seven Worlds Collide - I was confused if it was the 2008 concert or the one from 2001. Its the 2001 concert, which has already been released a long time ago. So if you think its the latest, you're out of luck. And maybe one day the 2008 concert will see the light of day.

If you are a fan of Neil Finn and his music, don't hesitate - buy it.

I've been a long-time fan of Split Enz, Crowded House, Neil Finn, The Smiths, Wilco, and Radiohead. So I bought both of the 7 Worlds Collide CDs. I probably enjoy the live CD more. Something about Eddie Vedder singing a Split Enz song, and Neil Finn singing a Smiths song . . . I'm not sure what it was, but it was nice. Not to say that I don't enjoy the music on this one, though. I do miss Tim Finn and Eddie Vedder. I wish they were there, too, but maybe the house was too crowded (sorry, I couldn't resist).

Anyways, what I wanted to say about the DVD was: I watched The Sun Came Out on the Documentary Channel. I was already familiar with all the songs, since I've listened to the CD many times. Then to see the process of creation, all in the beautiful setting of a beach town in New Zealand, was fascinating. If you're into the CD, or you're into the process of music creation, I think you'd like it.

The most enjoyable part of it for me was seeing the personality of Johnny Marr. I was an obsessed Smiths fan in the '80s, but I didn't know much about them beyond their music. I revered Marr's guitar playing; he still might be my number one guitarist. But I would never have suspected that anyone in the group had much of a sense of humor. I was so wrong. Marr was cracking me up during the DVD, and it was a lot of fun to watch.

No concert footage of the new lineup. Although the original concert is included, most already have it or they wouldn't be looking at this follow up.

A joyful display of musical camaraderie, chock full of really great tunes. The inside look into Neil Finn's comfortable, artist-friendly recording studio(s) was very intriguing as well. The "extra" concert from the earlier incarnation of the Neil & Friends super-group was a very worthy bonus, but since it is quite long and has a lower quality of production, I don't recommend watching the two features back-to-back.
