4 songs if you count Lindsey's solo "Make Me a Mask". It's hard to imagine them asking Lindsey to contribute a new solo number to this collection!

At least there is no new material. Thank goodness for small mercies. Given how shot their voices are now, not to mention the band's musical director having been summarily dismissed, it is all for the best. And we can now see through all this pretentious verbiage about this being a new band looking forward which is all about change and enjoying moving on the next chapter ad nauseam. They have nothing left to say, except lies.

Their collective voices have been "shot" or worn down for some time, but with judicious studio dusting and (gulp) autotune, they can still sound very good indeed. Cases in point: IN YOUR DREAMS, and LB/CM.

Not only that Neil Finn at a comparatively youthful 60 can still sing.

He definitely has the range, but itís funny hearing him Americanizing his singing accent.

I'm surprised $he hasn't taken songwriting credit for Little Lies. Yet.

I'd have liked to see more of the material from the 1971-74 period here, though I'm happy to have "Emerald Eyes" included. Also would have liked more from Behind The Mask and Time, though if there could only be one song from the latter, "I Do" represents it well.


I'm very happy to see "Fireflies" here, though the live version of "Never Going Back Again", is sure to be skipped by me. I'll check out "Sad Angel", as I've never heard it before.




All and all good picks for a 3D set. There is just too much great material in 50 years to put on 3 discs.

I do find it interesting that their 50 year retrospective is named for a song that is so clearly defined by the Rumours 5 lineup and we can argue, from the most definitive album this group has released. Given how they are a new band, and all that. It's curious that they not try for a little more "neutrality" or something that would have encompassed all iterations of FM

I just think itís weird to name a career spanning retrospective after the song that told us all ďdonít you look back.Ē

However, that song cemented their place in the history books.

It's either yet another instance of the band's slap-dash carelessness, or a slyly ironic send-up of the band's slap-dash carelessness. I'll leave it to you guys to decide.
