TOP TEN ALBUMS AND SINGLES

Crowded House? They really should get out more... While the retiring Australasians may be a little claustrophobic for some, there are enough lovers of melody-driven (drivel?) pop lite to get the band's best-of compilation to the top album slot in its first week of release. Crowded House (right) called it quits last month, so there'll be plenty of time to watch the walls.
