Customer Review

on 21 October 2004
Always was a bit of fan in their heyday and afterwards for a while. Favourite albums by them are Big Thing, and the debut Duran Duran (I also quite liked Madazzaland). However I never, never, never expected them to pull off something like this. This is a class pop album - great tunes, nicely produced, performed with verve. No real duff moments, if you tell yourself that Simon isn't rapping on Bedroom Toys, no duff moments at all. Top tracks Chains, Taste the Summer, Finest Hour, Astronaut, Nice, Sunrise, Want You More - with the rest not far behind.
There isn't anything else being released at the moment that is remotely like this and it is all the better for it. If you liked Duran Duran in the 80s but want to hear that sound updated for the 21st century and something that shows a real streak of class, then go for this. Uplifting, bright and shiny.
Great, great, great - in an year that has seen great albums released by Zero 7, Bebel Gilberto, Ash, Keane, Franz Ferdinand, kd Lang, The Bees, this is probably the best one so far - How strange is that?
