This is my "first spin impression": I LOVE what they did with the music, especially the guitar work, the ending is good too. I don't like the vocals. The chorus is ok, but the everything else...not so much.

 

Seeing as Duran Duran was my first favorite band and I still like their stuff I will listen to this some more.

 

Thanks for the post! :tumbsup:

T'was alright that. Wouldn't say it was better than the original, but definitely one of the better cover versions I have heard recently.

Well surely not better than the original, no one beats Duran's version. The guitar playing caught my attention first time around and it's absolutely spot on. It really suits the song. From the 2:30 mark onwards the song is at its best.

Yep, the singer's no match to Simon.

Can't hear this song at work, but Amaru are excellent!! I think there's an ex-member of Shinedown in the band and I'm not sure they have a physical CD yet - they released an album back in 2008, I think it was, called 'Love, Lies & Therapy.' Sadly I think it was a digital only release. Great album, though, and they have about 10 other songs on the internet which are great too. The main guy, Bob Amaru was also in a great unreleased modern rock band called Burn Season which had a full album recorded and shelved by Elektra.

 

Anyway, check this band out further than just this song. :)

I went to school with the lead singer, Bobby Amaru, and he's done so much musically, it's insane. This was a cover he did about 3-4 years ago that he'd also perform live. It never made it onto anything physical, it was on his MySpace page and that's it.

 

Bobby currently sings in Crown the Sun: www.facebook.com/crownthesun & plays drums in Burn Season: www.myspace.com/burnseason. Burn Season just recently got back together and are in the studio, Crown the Sun are shopping for labels. I was a little shocked that there was a topic about this, having known Bobby since the mid 90's when we were in middle school together, I'm glad to see his music is liked by a few people here and there!

Hey Michael, wow that's a shame to hear (by putting two and two together) that Amaru are no longer together then? :( I liked what I heard of Burn Season and hope they get something released this time, but I really thought the Amaru project was his best work. Though I haven't heard Crown The Sun, but I did really like Amaru...

Well, if you wanna get a bit technical, Crown the Sun IS Amaru. Bobby Amaru and Stephen (Scarey) Carey both performed in the band. Amaru consisted of Bobby on Vocals, Stephen on Guitar, Brad Stewart on Bass & Johnathan on drums. So not much change there, just new members and a new name!

 

As you may or may not know, Jacksonville, Florida is a mini Seattle. For Burn Season's final show before they broke up, they had Brad Stewart of Shinedown/Fuel, Jeremy Marshall of Cold & Sam Rivers of Limp Bizkit all jam out on Bass. It's like a family down here with all these bands!

 

PS Burn Season recorded their debut album with Bob Marlette for Elektra Records back in 2001. The record never got released, Elektra folded, Burn Season were dropped. They finally released a record with a few songs off that album remastered & remixed on Bieler Bros. Records. They're currently working on getting that Elektra Record released very soon.

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
