Carla Bruni Cover of Bowie the Worst in Pop History?

Carla Bruni's cover of Bowie classic 'Absolute Beginners' is one of the "worst covers  in the history of rock" music, according to Telegraph critic Jean Daniel Beauvallet.

The French rock writer goes on to say: "I find the cover insignificant, a rush-job, badly recorded and badly produced as if done between a cigar and a glass of eau de vie".

Bruni joined musicians such as Duran Duran and Devendra Banhart in tackling Bowie for covers album We Were So Turned On: A Tribute To David Bowie, the proceeds of which are going towards War Child.

Normally we'd say Beauvallet's review is mean-spirited, given the cause. However, in this instance we can confirm that Bruni's cover is complete and utter cack.
