5.0 out of 5 stars Duran Duran has too long been underrated., 17 April 2003
This review is from: The Singles Box 1; 1981-1985: Singles Box Set (Audio CD)
This box set represents the complete singles history of Duran Duran.
The interesting feature is not so much the A-sides (does anyone else remember when 7" singles on vinyl cam with A and B sides) but the inclusion of B sides and importantly remixes.
I used to find the old 7" vinyl great fun, especially discovering B side songs that were usually not included on official albums, and finding little gems. For example, Secret Oktober, Tiger Tiger and Faith In This Colour.
Duran Duran has too long been underrated. There appears to be a swing back occurring in recent years, in which their pop-sensibilities are starting to be recognized as a good thing, and not subject to contempt and even derision. Does anyone else remember the NME of the 1980s ridiculing anything remotely related to commercial pop? Now a days NME regularly interview Duran members and appears to have shifted 180 degrees in its attitude.
This box set is probably more oriented to collectors, as the Greatest Hits CD and the earlier Decade CD contain the more popular singles.
Hopefully soon, the period from Notorious to the present day will attract the same box set representation.
