Album: 7 Worlds Collide, The Sun Came Out, (Columbia)

Neil Finn, Liam Finn, Johnny Marr, Jeff Tweedy, assorted Radioheaders and, er, KT Tunstall... All proceeds to Oxfam... What could go wrong? Not much, actually, and Finn Sr's charity project is indeed worthy and occasionally wonderful.

So there's little to be gained from pointing out that most of these acts have made better records and no point whatsoever in concluding that these performers do bittersweet better than the sunshine pop on show here. Decent cause, decent record. What more do you want?
