Duran Duran: Astronaut vs. Red Carpet Masscare

Which is better, in your opinion, and why?

I know there are a lot of Duran fans who have strong preference for one over the other, and I was wondering what fellow U2 fans thought about the albums side by side.

(And also to hear how much everyone else misses Andy Taylor, too!)

I'm more of an Astronaut fan (Loved Sunrise)...While I do enjoy RCM and literally anything that Duran does, I'm not so much into the "rap" Timbaland aspect of what they have done..

and yes I miss Andy but I was fortunate enough to see the reunion tour 3x!

astronaut for sure. i too saw the reunion tour three times, and currently i'm set to see them once for their rcm tour. (although this can change if/when they come back for a second leg through the u.s. which is how i was able to see them so much last tour)

i'm not too wild about rcm but i'm interested to see if the songs sound any better live.

RCM has really grown on me. The 1st few listens I really noticed the Timbaland sound...but the more and more I listen to it the "Duran-ness" really shows through.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Nite Runner, The Valley and Tempted.

I think Nite Runner will sound great as a live song...but the won't be here in Cleve-burg for now......

They are both meh compared to their back catalogue...

In fact I would almost go as far to say that only "the Wedding Album" is the only album post 80's worth it's salt, and I think it may even be better than any of their 80's albums.

I think Astronaut is very good, and I rather like RCM, although I'm not as familiar with it yet as I should be. I like what I've heard off it and am really looking forward to seeing them live at the end of the month.

it's funny, in my case, i don't really like the wedding album that much at all. i liked it at the time. but now? not so much. if i had to pick my favourite 90s album of theirs, i'd probably pick medazzaland.

Well lets rank Duran Duran's 90's and 00's albums then.

this is how i see it

1. Astronaut
2. The Wedding Album
3. Medezzaland
4. Red Carpet Massacre
5. Pop Trash
6. Liberty
7. Thank You

The top four are all favorites, the others not so much.

Okay I got Medazzaland!

I love this style of pop culture collage album cover, just like Achtung Baby. The songs sound pretty good too!

Btw, one4u2 if you are reading this I'm gonna be at the show you're going to in Central Park. We should meet up!
