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 pupil’s 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 you’ll have this year. (8 out of 10)
