Customer Review

on 18 July 2001
Feeling low ?, Put yourself in the Duran electric chair, and get a supercharged jolt of pure adrenalised pop ! Big Thing was not big in the UK, probably because Notorious and Liberty were below average, by Duran standards, and we fans can be so fickle. The title song kicks off the LP with heavy bass and drums, a vibrant intro to the LP, Le Bon grates and stretches his vocal chords alongside shrieking guitars and howling keyboards great stuff. I don't want your love is song two, electro pop, almost under produced, slightly too lightweight ? All she wants is, wow, crank up the rock chords, they must have enjoyed recording this, it feels like fun ! Too late Marlene, who is Marlene ? I don't know, but you feel like you do, the empathy flows as Le Bon wrends this gentle mid tempo ballad from the ordinary, almost Mcartney like in it's plaintive style, a real grower. Drug, Palomino and the two interludes are not inspirational, but hey wait until you hear Do you believe in shame, quite simply a narcotic mix of foggy vocals and ambient instrument sounds, genius songwriting, truly a classic that did not cause a dent in the charts, but will be covered in years to come, take my word for it. Land, is like a girl that you see every day but do not notice, who gradually becomes a part of your psyche, growing incidiously, until you feel her even when she is not there, a terrific gentle ballad, listen to the words please, and understand the message. Edge of America, is a great LP track, again there is a feel to this song, cutting, romantic and honest. Lake shore driving is a quiet finish to the LP, rounding off this quality offering.
