Biography

In the 80s Duran Duran were the most successful new romantic band of the “second British Invasion”, helped by their stylish and sexually charged videos which received heavy play on MTV.

Product Description

DURAN DURAN Duran Duran (1993 UK 13-track CD album including a classic cover of the Velvet Underground single Femme Fatale together with the singles Come Undone and Ordinary World picture sleeve CDDDB34)

Amazon.co.uk

The post-Notorious Duran Duran are a slightly odd proposition: neither disappearing down the plughole like Bros or New Kids On The Block, but never quite managing the commercial or critical success of a George Michael. The Wedding Album contains a number of typically Serious Artiste tricks: a collaboration with someone obscure and trendy (Milton Nascimento), a cover of something undeniably classic and credible (the Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale") and a slightly embarrassing stab at whatever was the new(ish) movement of the time (the grunge-y "Too Much Information"). However, on the plus side, they do it better than most and the album contains both singles ("Come Undone" and in particular the top five hit "Ordinary World") and album tracks ("Love Voodoo") that, ostentatiously "adult" or not, are on a par with the glory days of "Rio" or "Save A Prayer". --Ronita Dutta

Where to start? I LOVED this album! Duran Duran have never failed to excite me, and this album was no exception. With a track listing that could have been written in their heyday back in the 80's (yes, I WAS there!) there is no shortage of something juicy and exciting for both the ardent fan and the casual listener. Standout tracks (personally speaking) are Ordinary World, Come Undone and Love Voodoo...all for entirely different reasons, but for me, these songs show the maturity with which the have band progressed from their early foray into the mayhem and madness of the music world into the 90's (as here) and beyond...and they are still going strong!

1993 was a good year for Duran Duran as they bounced back with this album after what some consider a year or two in the musical doldrums. This is an album where they took plenty of musical chances which is very apparent from the heavy guitar-soaked opening track 'Too much information' which makes it clear that we are to expect an innovative album. The musical variations continue with such diverse tracks as 'Love voodoo', 'Breath after breath' and 'None of the above' providing a real mixe of styles! With Warren now very much part of the group this accounts for much of the musical breadth of this album, the acoustic flavourings of 'Breath after breath' being an example. But let's not forget that this album also includes two of the best singles that Duran Duran ever released in the beautiful 'Ordinary world and the incredibly innovative 'Come undone'! Many had written off Duran Duran at this point, but this album was continuing testament that people had overlooked their talent and just pigeonhole them as a pretty boy pop band! After this it all got a bit complicated and they were to languish in the musical doldrums again for a bit. But you can't keep a good band down and they were to bounce back again!

1993: The "Wedding Album" helped to re-install DD way up in the charts, thanks to the planetary hit 'Ordinary World', and the beautiful ballad 'Come Undone', but the album as a whole is marred by mostly dance-oriented songs that despite their lavish production in retrospect though not totally bad are nonetheless far from representing essential listening and the terrible cover of 'Femme Fatale' should've taught DD not to continue in that way (their cover album ''Thank you' was ehm.. embarrassing to say the least).
Beside the two hits, only "Too Much Information" and "Love Voodoo" stand out as classic material.
In the end, an album carried by two hits and 3-4 good songs but for the rest without going into details, it sounds more like a marriage of convenience with the charts of 93 to the detriment of the originality and quality that DD have shown on other records.

By 1993, it really was make or break for Duran Duran.
Fortunately, this album contains some of Duran's best work, lead single "Ordinary World" was a top ten hit on both sides of the Atlantic, with it's follow up single "Come Undone" equally sucessful.
They are both great pop/rock songs, and it wouldn't be unfair to say that those two songs alone pretty much kept Duran Duran alive in the 90's.
Duran found their feet again with this, it brought them a new generation of fans keen to explore the band for the first time, a result commerically also that sold over 6 million copies sold worldwide.
Musically, "The Wedding Album" presents Duran as a more mature band, their sound has evolved to a modern Alternative Rock band, it's pleasant listening.
It's not quite five stars, but Duran Duran were back in 1993, and almost as good as their early 80's heyday.

This album was a huge shot in the arm to any Duran fan who'd lost hope on the band. Though it's not a perfect record by any means ("Shotgun" is pointless, "Time 4 Temptation" just plain silly - the far superior b-side track "Fallen Angel" would have fit nicely here), the best of the bunch were right up there with the best Duran tracks: "Too Much Information" and "Ordinary World" began the album with a formidable one-two punch, "Come Undone" and "Breath After Breath" were absolutely beautiful, and "None of the Above", "Shelter", and "Sin of the City" were terrific as well. Well worth checking out.

Duran Duran (The Wedding Album) is their seventh album and their second for the 1990s. Ordinary World is one of the better songs on here but most tracks on here, maybe all, are good. This is quite a bit better then their first six albums.

I was pleasantly surprised by the high standard of music in this album. It matches the high quality of music which Duran duran were able to churn out continuously in the 1980s. Some of the songs are best forgotten but on a whole, it is a step forward for them into the dreadful music of the 1990s. This was a promising album for them and it was a shame that they were unable to capitalise on this success in recent years (probably due to the departure of John Taylor). Come on Duran Duran, this is the new millennium and I hope that they release some more material like this soon.

Very enjoyable retro trip into the 80's. Reminiscant of all the hits that made DuranDuran so popular during this period of hope for the future and money to be made. Well worth it.
