Duran Duran was always hard to play in clubs except one song: "Girls On Film" which was tuned from the hardest electro underground parties to the retro student parties up to special insets for House or Techno. Of course "Rio" or "Hungry Like A Wolf" are cult. Duran Duran had at least minimum the same quantity of good pop songs like THE POLICE if you look on "View To A Kill", "The Reflex", "Save A Prayer", "Wild Boys", "Union Of A Snake", et. .But from an artistic standpoint, I don't get the idea of "returning to one's roots" or whatever BS the band uses to justify making an album of sellout, throwaway pop.
Most tracks are too loud. Many tracks are not well EQ'd. The songs are good, but vinyl is not the best way to enjoy this album, sadly. Reply Notify me 3 Helpful. AWW. January 25, 2013. Great fun album, more of the same please, 1981, 1981!! Reply Notify me Helpful.

Duran Duran and producer Mark Ronson envisioned the 2011 release All You Need Is Now as a sequel to the band’s 1982 effort Rio, but fans are better off approaching it as the imaginary effort that came after 1983’s Seven and the Ragged Tiger
So when Duran Duran decided that they wanted to revisit the feel that they had on their classic eighties albums while also sounding current, Mark Ronson was clearly an appropriate choice to produce. Unfortunately, some of his production choices may have weakened the album a bit, especially the flagrant use of auto-tune on Simon Le Bon's vocals, which we know from all their classic works is totally unnecessary.
The best Duran Duran album for 18 years. Following massive early success, ego-fuelled side projects, line-up changes and yachting accidents, Duran Duran completed the full rock career trajectory in 1993 with a triumphant comeback. The Ordinary World single and its parent album rekindled public affection and critical acclaim for a band most had consigned to nostalgia shows. Since then the group’s creative flame has flickered fitfully, though 2004’s Astronaut and the Timbaland-assisted follow-up Red Carpet Massacre demonstrated that all was not lost . 1 All You Need Is Now. 2 Blame the Machines.
