“Are You Lookin’ At Me?”
COMPASS RECORDS

Twenty years after this former Men At Work frontman set off on a solo career, his ninth album finds him relaxed and still able to knock out the melodies. It’s not an ambitious album, yet neither is it bland. Hay ruminates on life — the title track, half-sung in his thick Scottish brogue — and death — “Lonely Without You,” which manages to be both touching and funny — in equal measure, and could have a hit in “Land of the Midnight Sun,” if radio still made a place for artists this quirky. Recommended.
