yeah, all i keep hearing is that they're in the studio. blah. we've seen what can happen when their material gets overproduced. though simon's been having bouts of writer's block for as long as i can remember (i know since at least the making of medazzaland, but that's just when i became a fan so it might've been earlier too). bah, they just need to give us the album already.

And, hopefully, better than the last one. I loved "Astronaut", but I never even bothered buying RCM -- everything I heard from it sounded . . . well . . . not good.

yeah, rcm's kind of a grower album. i appreciated the tracks after hearing them live. but i can still only listen to about half the album. the rest is just boring. it's down there with liberty, the wedding album, and thank you for me. astronaut's awesome though.

I finally got around to ordering used copies of the Rio remaster and the accompanying DVD - they just showed up!

has anyone picked up any of the more recent remasters? duran duran, seven and the ragged tiger, and arcadia have all come out recently. notorious and big thing are also coming out soon, but i'm not sure if anyone here likes those.

I have them all on my Amazon wish list, but I probably won't get around to picking up copies until later this year.

Hopefully by then, used copies will drop in price a little.

I think Notorious is really good, but I will avoid the Big Thing remaster like the plague.

For me, for what *I* consider to make a good album (strong themes -lyrical & musical- running throughout, variety, yet also homogeneity, and NOT just a few singles with a lot of filler), and from the ones I've heard (albums, not the remasters. sorry):

Notorious > Seven and the Ragged Tiger > Astronaut > Big Thing > Liberty =/> The Wedding Album

I think it goes without saying that Duran Duran and Rio tower above the rest.

And, yes . . . I do think The Wedding Album is faaaaaaaaaar worse than Big Thing. I actually rather like Big Thing.

qft. i'd probably put big thing in my top five.

i'm just bummed that there's no demos for either. it's not like there isn't material, i've got a cd's worth of demos for each album, but of course the quality's crap. i'm interested in seeing if they're going to release more albums after this, though. the wedding album could use a remastering, and it's certainly popular enough to justify it. if they do though, will they skip over liberty? no one will buy it, but it would be nice if they put some of the demos on a bonus disc or something, cuz a lot of those demos are far better than what made the album. it isn't saying much, though. but there was promise in some of the songs. though really, nearly anything's better than crap like hothead.

you beat me to it!

i like the snippet, though. i've listened to it a couple times (tried to avoid totally fan girling out) and i like it. definitely a better vibe than their last album.

Rio was the 4th album I ever owned, back when I was about 8 years old. (The first three were two by The Beatles, and of course MJ's Thriller.)

Rio was as 80s as it gets, but a very good record. Amazingly strong tunes, great arrangements, very fresh, very contemporary (then).

My older sister, who was their super-fan, went to their concert in the mid to late 80s, and on the way had a close encounter with Simon Le Bon, who was hanging out at a donut shop. He even closed the car door for her! She then instructed our mom never to wash that door again, lest we remove his fingerprints.
