I thought I saw a post a while back about this, but a search revealed no matches..

I just got this album and have to say it is one of the best DD albums EVER! Every song is absolutely great! The whole, original band together! This is the album that should have come after 7 and the ragged tiger!! Every album since then was too "studio perfect" with ringer guitarists and drummers. Getting Andy and Roger back got the groove back!

This album is a validation of why I thought they were one of the best of the 80's bands!

Can we all just go back to the 80's now when all the beautiful people were everywhere and no one went out without without their make up and hair done? Now everyone just looks like crap all the time, even at events. WTF? OK, so maybe what's inside is more important, but since there are not that many spiritually beautiful people anyway, I still think they all could use a little make up and hairspray.

Sorry, I should not be PWD (posting while drunk). Oh well. Tough noogies!

Cynfulcynner-you're right! I tend to mix up my big hair bands-I guess a few episodes of "I Love The Eighties" would straighten my right out.

Seriously though, people often judge Duran Duran for thier "look" during the 80's new romantic movement, and they judge them as being a "boy band" just like NKOTB or NSYNC.

But I grew up hearing these guys, and other 80's bands and Duran Duran was always a bit different. In their music are obvious influences: Bowie, Roxy Music, Thin Lizzy, Giorgio Moroder, Chic and others. All great bands. I find it interesting that the guitarist also thought they were pretty lame looking when he first auditioned.

Unlike NSYNC, Duran Duran has been working for 24 years now, and can still come up with an album of fresh, energized material, even in this day and age!

I think they are great!

As a bass player, I have to say that Duran Duran's bass player is one of the best there is, along with the bass player from The Fixx, and Kajagoogoo. I'm not posting this as a joke, these guys were awsome musicians.

The bass guy from the Fixx was amazing, but if you look at their album pictures he is never in them. The other four guys are in the pix, but the bass player just has his name listed. I always thought this was a little weird!

And the guy from DD is a good bass player too, he's probably the best musician in the band. Listen to what the bass is doing behind the sax solo in the song "Rio" if you need proof.
