THE BARGAIN BUY: Neil Finn: Out of Silence

Our long-running Bargain Buy column -- cheap-as-chips CDs through JB Hi-Fi -- has somewhat taken a back seat lately because so many people are streaming and more and more are looking to vinyl.

That is why we instituted our Hi-Fi Vinyl column.

But . . . we also came upon Neil Finn's most recent album Out of Silence.

Now it might not seem like our traditional cheap-as CDs but -- at $20 -- for its dreamlike quality, political thought and sheer ambition, this one is both the summertrack album and a keeper.

JB_logoIt also plays well in the car if you have balmy-days drives to the beach ahead.

We went into some detail about it here.

So, no.

Not the cheapest Bargain Buy we can point you to . . . but dollar-for-dollar/minute-by-minute it pays back . . . and will do for some time to come.
