Thank you or no Thank You?

Am I the only one who loves Duran Durans Thank you album?

Sometimes it feels that way,it got slashed and slated in the music press with one publication saying that their cover songs were "wrong headed".

I do suppose fans of the original songs may listen to the covers and just implode at what Duran Duran did to them but I love what they did to the songs.

Perfect day is a prime example but I have yet to met the Lou Reed fan that agrees with me :(

Get this though the bands that Duran Duran covered largly approved of how the band treated thier material so maybe I have some support in my views.

I recomend this album to anyone who agrees with me that this is a good album :P

Oh and here is the track listing:

1. "White Lines" (Grandmaster Flash) – 5:31
2. "I Wanna Take You Higher" (Sly & The Family Stone) – 5:06
3. "Perfect Day" (Lou Reed) – 3:51
4. "Watching the Detectives" (Elvis Costello) – 4:48
5. "Lay Lady Lay" (Bob Dylan) – 3:53
6. "911 Is a Joke" (Public Enemy) – 3:59
7. "Success" (original by Iggy Pop, written by Iggy Pop and David Bowie) – 4:05
8. "Crystal Ship" (The Doors) – 2:52
9. "Ball of Confusion" (The Temptations) – 3:46
10. "Thank You" (Led Zeppelin) – 6:36
11. "Drive By" (Duran Duran) – 5:34
12. "I Wanna Take You Higher Again" (Sly & The Family Stone) – 4:25

  1. I never knew Duran Duran did a cover of Ball Of Confusion - although i have always liked their version of White Lines. 'Love & Rockets' (AKA Bauhaus) also did a rather 80's sounding cover of Ball....
