5.0 out of 5 stars At last!, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghost Radar®: CONNECT (App)
As a ghost myself, I love this app. Finally I can communicate with my wife and let her know the name of the fiend who murdered me and tell her where he disposed of my corpse. Plus, it's free today so everyone's a winner!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treat For The 80's Connoisseur!, 28 Jun 2005
This review is from: 12"/80s Vol.2 (Audio CD)
Although I sympathise with some other reviewers comments regarding a lack of big names on this CD, for an avid 80's collector like me, that's kind of the point! As much as I love the tracks by Duran Duran, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Culture Club, etc, I've already got them in one form or another, the beauty of a collection like this is the chance to get
your hands some rare mixes of long lost gems like Julian Cope's Trampolene, Hue And Cry's Labour Of Love or the Associates Party Fears Two. So maybe not an album for the casual 80's fan but definitely a real treat for the connoisseur!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't nothing gonna ace this!, 19 Oct 2004
This review is from: Astronaut (Audio CD)
If you grew up in the eighties you could not avoid Duran Duran. They were bigger and better than Oasis, they're music both unashamedly poppy and subversive at the same time. When the band fragmented after 1985's 'A View To A Kill' eighties music, and pop music in general, was never quite as exciting or fun again.
Although Duran Duran have released many albums in the mean time with various line-ups, they never managed to capture the dizzy heights of their first three albums.
Until now that is. 'Astronaut', the first album to feature the original line-up since 'Seven and the Ragged Tiger' is a fantastic pop album, somehow managing to sound very eighties and yet totally contemporary. Each of the twelve songs here is a potential single, with each track sounding completely different from the one before.
Stand-out songs for me are the single 'Sunrise','What Happens Tomorrow','Astronaut','Still Breathing' and the sublime 'Finest Hour'.
In short, if you're a fan of Duran Duran, or good pop music in general, then you need this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blistering return to form!, 15 Oct 2004
This review is from: Astronaut (Audio CD)
As anyone who lived in the eighties knows, Duran Duran were the ultimate pop group, their music accessible and subversive at the same time. When the band fragmented after 1985's 'A View To A Kill' eighties music and pop music in general was never quite as exciting.
Although Duran Duran have been around since then in one form or another, they've never quite managed to reach the dizzy heights that they achieved with their first three albums.
Until now that is. 'Astronaut' is the first album since 'Seven & The Ragged Tiger' to feature the original line-up and it's fantastic. Managing to sound very eighties and yet totally contemporary at the same time, the twelve songs that feature on this album sound incredibly fresh and each one sounds different from the last.
All the tracks here are great but highlights include the single 'Sunrise', 'What Happens Tomorrow', 'Still Breathing', 'Astronaut', and the sublime 'Finest Hour'.
In short, if you're a fan of Duran Duran, or pop music in general, you cannot afford to be without this album.
Welcome back lads!
