hmm, my suggestions for what to listen to next depend on what you thought of pop trash.

and i totally understand your liking rcm - i don't hate it at all, there's actually a handful of songs on there i really enjoy. i'd rank it towards the bottom of my list of their albums but that's not because it sucks, but more that i just love the other albums so much more.

I actually really like Pop Trash! None of the albums left a particularly bad taste in my mouth, just personal preference regarding the rankings.

Catman, you HAVE to listen to the classics! Rio and the eponymous debut Duran Duran.

It's kind of akin to saying you've only ever heard Pop, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb and No Line On The Horizon, but have never heard The Joshua Tree or Achtung Baby!. Sometimes you just have to hear the classics, even though they may be overhyped to death.

I'm also a big fan of Duran Duran's Notorious album.

oh, i was just curious to get an idea of what to recommend.

rcm is really like nothing else in their discography, the closest thing to it is notorious and even that's a bit of a stretch. if you like pop trash, you might like medazzaland as well.

and of course like fitz said, there's their classic two albums.

Okay, I just downloaded their "Greatest Hits" and I'd say my favorite songs so far are...

Ordinary World
Come Undone
Skin Trade
Rio
New Moon on Monday
Save a Prayer
Electric Barbarella
Serious

Heh, that's a good analogy. I suppose I will load up my grooveshark account and start loading up the tunes. Thanks for the recommendations, yo


EDIT: Just listened to the 2 new tracks that have leaked - not too big on the 1st single, but I kinda adore "Mediterranea"

'New Religion' came up on random on my iPod while I was driving in my car today and it sounded sooooo good! I haven't heard it in a while, so I cranked up the volume and blasted it . . . two times in a row!

Just got the new song! <All You Need Is Now.
The album isn't out yet(21 Dec).I like this song but I was wondering if maybe they should have had 'Being Followed' as the first single.

Here's a clip of Being Followed that Mark Ronson had on his radio show a couple weeks ago. This is classic Duran Duran!!

I don't know what the problem is, but iTunes USA still doesn't have the new song. DD posted on Facebook last night that they had alerted iTunes the song wasn't available everywhere across the globe like it was supposed to be and that iTunes was correcting the problem, but here we are a day later and still no 'All You Need Is Now' in the U.S.

Booooo!


EDIT: Nevermind the above. I literally *just* check and it's there now and for FREE.

good to find some DD fans over here as well

the official website is now previewing the bonkers sounding "The Man who stole a leopard"- which sounds like a cross between Duran Duran and PSB's- with Kelis sharing the vocals- the 50 seconds I heard sounded brilliant

I gather that much of the i-tunes album has now leaked- various tracks are on you tube- Being Followed, Girl Panic, Leopard are definitely there

I'm trying to resist listening to too much of it before 21 Dec

yeah, i can't decide if i should listen to anything else or not. i mean, the album comes out in a week and a half. their last album was out in 2007, if i've waited that long i can wait a little more to hear everything.

Holy, it's awesome! The Man Who Stole A Leopard...........

Warning, it's the full version so avoid if you want to wait for the album. Classic DD though! The harmonies are magic!
