Overview

Under the direction of guitarist Andy Taylor, the Power Station is an attempt to break free from the constraints of Duran Duran's polished synth pop, adding elements of funk, courtesy of Chic drummer Tony Thompson, as well as straight-ahead hard rock, courtesy of vocalist Robert Palmer. Everything is polished with a glossy sheen, which makes the record sound quite similar to Duran Duran, although without their sense of popcraft. Includes a cover of T. Rex's "Get It On (Bang a Gong)" and the single "Some Like It Hot." [EMI's 2005 reissue boasts greatly improved sound, several alternate mixes, and a bonus DVD containing videos, interviews, and the band's appearance on Saturday Night Live.]
