    to be fair this is a character piece (david brent the boss from the office) and was a comic relief special i think? it makes sense within the logic of The Office

    what's to hate about it? it's just a couple of guys mucking around. granted, not the greatest piece of music, but it's hardly a crime....

    just take it for what it is, a bit of silliness....

    Thing is I have a lot of their albums and have seen them three times. I think Daryl Hall is up there with some of the best singers ever.
    That version of Soldering is the one track they did that makes my teeth grate. Sorry.:)

    i never thought serge was cod. sly and robbie are on it after all.

    cod does not equal bad, and reggae does not equal good. they are not the criteria!

    that's right. cod: a reggae track by a band usually not influenced by reggae. reggae: a track by a reggae band.

    ah yes, this is the one i was thinking of earlier in the thread - i remember the 2003 remixes mentioned in Rutita's post - some nice tracks from that pack as well.

    Sinead O'Connor did a similar thing, btw - she suddenly went all reggae and recorded a reggae album with an all-jamaican all star band (and Sly and Robbie).

    I was sad to hear that their saxophonist Greg Ham committed suicide over the Down Under/Kookaburra plagiarism court case.

    would this be considered cod or a change of musical direction?
