The glossiness surrounding the 'Rio' album (videos, fashions etc) overshadowed the fact that it was a very good album.
Exactly now time has past the songs shine at how good they were, unlike the Culture Club's, Wham etc....

Yes Secret Oktober another from the Seven And The Ragged sessions, brilliant stuff...

Another one that I am now addicted to, that chorus! "Shadows On Your Side"

Only shame for me is the route they went with the next album, "Notorious" the funk route and less energy, they did bounce back a few times over the years though, seems like Andy Taylor made the difference, but they always fall out sadly...

Yes good points Sledge Hammer, and as you suggest, Wham! and Culture Club were not all bad but their songs are more rooted in that time.

Yea Shadows is one of my favorites. One of their darker songs.

I remember when the Notorious album came out, it was kind of confusing, like "who is this band?" That and Big Thing were not their best.

Anyone got any idea when the Coxon/Duran Duran LP is coming out? I think it was supposed to be almost finished in January but I guess it's moved back a bit.

Great stuff. Have seen mention of him being credited as a producer on the LP but not sure whether that'll happen.

Alex must be a little jealous. This seems like such an Alex move and not something anyone would have predicted 20 years ago.

Not what I was expecting at all. Where are the guitars?

Here's the video.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMCd5zrsFpE


They did have a teaser on the Twitter page prior to today's premier. I cannot wait until Sunday for their Billboard Music Awards performance w/Graham.

Yes, a lack of guitars unfortunately which is something Andy Taylor endured throughout his tenure w/Duran Duran but it seemed they gave Warren Cuccurullo more liberties......
