The top 10-15% for the material is fantastic. Origional Sin, New Sensation, What You Need, By My Side, Never Tear Us Apart, Listen Like Thiefs etc etc. They wrote some damn good pop/rock that transcends the 1980's sound (which very little material from that era does.)

Despite this, me (being a massive mark for lyrics & concepts for songs) Hutch/Farriss et al never really cut it. The wrote some great love songs, they wrote some boring, repitious, semi melodic tunes that start nowhere and end 100 miles in the same direction. They're better than a lot of stuff nowadays mind you. I just never felt the real desire to succeed musically on a personal level, rather an need to succeed musically on a public level (i.e making it in the US & record sales).

They do arrange amazingly well though.

Also I'm also probably a bit bitter about how the Australian media & public glorifies them, when I've always felt Crowded House who should be getting at least some of the kudous.

okay yeah those are some of their best songs, although they do happen to have some excellent songs that you haven't mentioned. the best song of theirs is kiss the dirt, followed oh-so-closely by burn for you. if you don't like those two, then i think you need to be castrated.

mayhaps he accidentally put a song on repeat and thought they were trying to pass off an entire album just of the song "new sensation?"

Wow. I didn't mean to be that harsh. For example I think a large portion of The Swing and the songs on X I didn't list before (with maybe one or two exceptions) I would probably class as "throw away" or forgettable. They just don't float my boat.

I dig the general vibe on WTWYA & LLT... sometimes that individual songs aren't really there but the vibe flows through.

I haven't really listenet to them that intensley... maybe most albums 4-5 times. So I may well be wrong - and some things are a grower. Especially with me. Do you challange me to listen to them a few more times do you?

Nope I'm watching it and not fast forwarding. It's only 92 minutes long. According to the dvd scene selections...I am at scene 26 of 28.

They are racing to the Royal Albert Hall and just drove past Buckingham Palace. They mention the Queen and Prince William but we do not see them
