Despite what the Amazon critic says, this album was far from a failure for Power Station or Duran. This album was a huge success, spawning three top 40 hits. Duran went on after this in various lineups and had several more hits of their own. As most people know, Duran eventually regrouped and have toured to sold out arenas in 2004-2005.
Curse of The Power Station, indeed.
Well, you can probably guess that I'm in my 30s, and if you're reading this review, odds are that you are too. So any criticism of this album to those of us who always loved it is somewhat meaningless. This album was part of the soundtrack of my youth. I drove around with it blasting in my car. I played it at blowout parties with my friends. I met my first love with it playing somewhere in the background, I'm sure. I even saw them live with Michael Des Barres as the singer, which made perfect sense if you know anything about the history of glam rock.
So, I can't wait to get this in remastered form. Great to have all the videos as well. I'll crank this at home once again, though with a Diet Coke - no cocaine!

I love this album. Always have. The drums and percussion are fantastic, and the delicious guitar, not to mention Robert Palmer's silky vocals make this one a must have. Read morePublished 8 months ago by PostMeridian
