Where do I begin to describe what it was like to discover Duran Duran, their music, the way they looked, their attitude, and the effect that they had (and continue to have) on me and my generation? Even seeing their album covers for the first time-they just looked so sophisticated and glamorous to me as a kid. Thankfully, the music here is equally exciting. Killer singles like Planet Earth and Girls on Film mingle with great ablum tracks like Is There Anyone Out There?, Sound of Thunder, and Friends of Mine, which could all have been singles in their own right. The fabulously pretentious To the Shore has also now been reinstated on the CD version. Unlike the pop groups of today-a bland 1950's regression, who seem to live in a vacuum, can't write their own songs, repeatedly sample and cover other people's tunes, and are told what to wear by so many stylists-Duran Duran were an intelligent, talented, multi-layered package that also provoked thought. They didn't just make great music-look deeper and follow the signs and you'll discover many more delights of pop culture, like their own musicial influences, art, books, design, photography, fashion and films-check out the references in Friends of Mine for starters. I've heard recently that the original fab 5 are back in the studio, making a new album together. Here's hoping that they can recapture some of the magic that made this and Rio, among others, classic pop albums that still sound so wonderful now.

The first Duran Duran album, and delightfully dark, almost gothic. It still sounds different though. Nobody was this original, still nobody is. The great Planet Earth, and Careless Memories take me back 20 years (Am I REALLY that old?). The fabulous Night Boat (any John Taylor fan can't help but love the video). My favourite track has to be Sound of Thunder - that's where the sound of the Power Station came from. Totally original, totally brilliant, would still stand up today in the sad pop world.

Duran Duran's eponymous debut speaks volumes about their origins - and about their musical development. You can hear the influences of Bowie, Roxy Music, Disco and Punk but even at this early stage there was a uniqueness about their sound and style that set them apart from the New Romantics they are associated with. Like other DD albums there is a definite schism between what would have been Side 1 & Side 2 of the album (that means vinyl to you youngsters!). Girls On Film, one of their most enduring songs, is an obvious highlight, and Planet Earth which even uses the words 'New Romantic' in the lyrics is catchy and has aged better than some of its contemporaries. 'Careless Memories' has a darker edge to it and was only a minor hit in 1981 - I think the song really comes alive on an album like 'Arena' where it has a visceral energy somehow lacking on the original. Perhaps a better choice of single would have been 'Friends Of Mine' (apparently the line 'Georgie Davis is coming out' gave the song some play on the gay club scene!)or 'Sound Of Thunder' which really kick ass with their swirling synths and punchy guitars. The 'artier' more sombre songs show off the kind of songwriting and artistic range that bands now could only dream about. Bordering on pretentious perhaps but then again they were art students in the late 70's! 'Nightboat' is a fan favourite and even now it is strangely compelling. As another reviewer has commented, the video to this song is like a mini-movie with zombies etc long before Micahel Jackson released 'Thriller' - yet MJ is treated as the pioneer of video!Read more ›

This is less a review of the music that surely needs no introduction but more a heads up that this version of the first album sounds better than the later 2003 issue and doesn't have the problem of the stop start intro that plagues the new (2010) remaster that may be fine for the bonus tracks plus DVD. Having spent many hours closely listening to four other versions (2003/2010/1985 Japan domestic and the Japanese issue for the UK) issued over the years has yet on comparison with to be beaten for sound quality and having the whole UK album present(the original disc CDP 7 46042-2 whilst sounding really good missed off To The Shore).
Strongly recommended for anyone with good ears and high quality equipment.
