MALCOLM McLAREN: Duck Rock (Charisma)

Listening to this I feel a bit like a geography teacher who, having been impressed by the seeming originality of a pupils project, then discovers that most of the ideas have been copied straight out of the text books. The project is great—a soundtrack album of various dance styles from around the world—but I just think McLaren and producer Trevor Horn have a bit of a cheek claiming all the song writing credits. Still it probably is the best dance album youll have this year. (8 out of 10)
