Great songs, but not mixed well

I love most every song on this cd, especially "Big Bang Generation" and "Midnight Sun". However, the mix on all the songs is very weak. I suppose because they used a lot of old keyboards, drum machines, etc, and overdubbed a ton, it was difficult to get everything heard. However, sometimes the competition between the many tracks used can overtake the main instruments - the drums sound thin - to cut through all the other tracks, many of the excellent guitar tracks have far too much treble and end up piercing your ears if you're listening to the songs too loudly. When you compare the overall mixes to The Wedding Album, Thank You, and Pop Trash, you'll notice how weak the mix sounds on this cd. It's frustrating because the songs are great.

Don't miss Midnight Sun

The preview doesn't do the song justice. Midnight Sun is unbelievable.

Highly underrated

Absolutely amzaing album. Very underrated and underappreciated. This CD definitely explores the "darker" side of Duran Duran and it was a welcome break. "Out Of My Mind," "Midnight Sun" and "So Long Suicide" are simply stunning. If you're seeking the more pop sound from DD, this may not be for you (except maybe "Electric Barbarella"). I've got everything the band has ever put out, and start to finish this one still ranks up there towards the top for me. And, like another reviewer below, it helped me get through some rough times. Check it out.
