Duran Duran: All You Need Is Now

"While a generation of singers and bands futilely try to re-create the '80s, Duran Duran has finally stopped running from its own '80s past to actually bring the decade back in all its glory. And leave it to millennial producer Mark Ronson (born in 1975) to lead them there. With INXS gone, U2 in mid-shark jump, and Madonna usurped by Lady Gaga, Duran Duran may be our only viable connection to the days of Live Aid, nonstop MTV videos, and dudes with eyeliner. For those of you wanting to forget 'Hungry Like the Wolf' and 'Girls on Film,' you'll want to skip All You Need Is Now. For those of you who always thought of Duran Duran as an '80s high water mark -- or anyone who gets the irony of any '80s music now being high art -- All You Need is Now is all you need on your playlist" (Shawn Amos, "PLAY > SKIP," Huffington Post, 3/22/11).
