You would think that the "rock press" would wake up and notice the sales from Paul's tour and vote Paul entertainer of the year.
Just shows how ignorant they are.

Neil Finn - One Nil(rest of world)
One All(US)

Neil Finn and Friends- Live at the St James(seven worlds collide)

YES-Symphonic -Live in Amsterdam DVD

Worst: Not having any of these in your collection


Neil Finn is brilliant. David Byrne had it right - he writes some of the best songs out there. Absolutely brilliant.

I have only got two albums dated 2002:

The "Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron" soundtrack by Bryan Adams and Hans Zimmer, and

Brainwashed by our own G.H.

Brainwashed, I think is very, very good, especially under the circumstances. Elsewhere, well, I'm quite a big fan of Bryan Adams, but I have to say, there's little to really, REALLY get me going on this new album; two, maybe three songs that are great, but a lot of it is rather bland, or is too similar to something that he's already done. His last really amazing studio album was Waking Up The Neighbours in 1991 - 18 Til I Die in 1996 was quite good, but was a little overdone. MTV Unplugged, from 1997, is of course exceptional (anything with "When You Love Someone" on it is worth it for that song alone!), but On A Day Like Today in 1998 was definitely rather bland. Come on, Bryan, get back to your rockin' roots!

Bryan Adams is an intersting guy. I like a lot of the stuff he's written for other folks. ("When the Night Comes" for Joe ****er, "It's only Love" for Tina Turner) His own records were so over-played here in the '80s. I do think he's written some pretty good songs, however. I haven't listened to much since "Waking Up the Neighbours."

The year isn't even half over,so we still have plenty of time for more great music/and some crap.Madonna has a new cd that is in two words-embarrassingly awful! And of course,any list of worst must include the lenny Kravitz WE WANT PEACE. This attempt at opportunistic pandering to the anti-war movement by Kravitz went over like a lead fart.LOSER! Then the good-We have to add to BITUS/now BITW with the smashing live rendition of She's Leaving Home.[^]
