5.0 out of 5 stars Big Thing... Even Bigger, 5 April 2011
This review is from: Big Thing (Audio CD)
One of Duran Duran's best albums. Great production from a band just getting their act together after having only 3 members, Warren had only just joined the band and was flexing his muscles, All She Wants Is an absolutely thumping, modern dance number, Do You Believe in Shame, Too Late Marlene, Palamino... beautiful ballads... Duran Duran, just because they are not the most successful band in the world anymore, I don't believe they have the confidence to do what they are good at, they try to make music that they think people want to hear... I Don't Want Your Love, the single and my least favourite track, full of House music trickery, no it doesn't work, Look at Edge Of America/Lake Shore Driving, why was this never a single, listened to as one track, absolutely sublime and very self assured. Again Big Thing, brilliant song..

I have always loved your work, and I would say believe in yourself boys cos you have a legion of dedicated fans and they love what you do... Don't pander to the masses who don't appreciate you.. You may never be as big as you once were, but take satisfaction in the fact that you are still loved for what you do and you do have moments of absolute brilliance even after all these years... This is over twenty years old and still a favourite of mine, when will the serious music press take them seriously...
