Split Enz: History Never Repeats (The Best of Split Enz) [A&M, 1987]
From Down Under, where Vanda-Young are Goffin-King if not Lennon-McCartney, pretenders who made Squeeze, their pop compatriots across the Tasman Sea, seem like heavyweights on spritz and detail alone. Tunes and metaphors are brought skillfully to completion like an A student's notebook exercise--you'll remember every song. But you'll never know why you bothered.
