Also, if loving Duran Duran is wrong, I don't want to be right.
I just wrote a huge blog on DD. I was watching Biography the other day and they were doing DD....I was curious to see how they treated their later releases....and just as I thought they would....they just about ignored them.
Duran Duran's later efforts are spectacular. Many fans chose not to even give them a chance because they are too stuck on those 80's hits....and anything that strays away from that sound....they have no use for.
Duran Duran (The Wedding Album)
Astronaut (to a lesser degree)
Are ALL awesome albums.....which all sold terrible here in the states.
Meddazaland was the ONLY DD album to only be released in America only. They followed it up with PopTrash which continued that sound....songs like None of the Above, Icon, Playing with Uranium and Mars meets Venus are so far removed from the stuff they did in the 80's.
Meddazaland is over 11 years old and still sounds fresh today.
AVOID "Red Carpet Massacre".....last years AWFUL album in which they took the trendy route of getting Timbaland to produce the record......it sounds like total shit!
