Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Following the criminal disregard that British record labels showed their previous album Medazzaland you could have been forgiven for thinking that Duran Duran were over and done with, reduced to touring a greatest hits package to nostalgia fans who survived the fashion crimes of the 1980s. Yet the start of the new millennium saw them bouncing back with another studio album, and with it a few hints towards a new direction. There are some tracks that are undeniably Duran Duran--the sublime wistful balladry of "Pop Trash Movie" and the rousing choruses of "Mars Meets Venus", but these are countered with some bizarre shifts in style--to the shades of Elliott Smith on "Starting To Remember" and an attempt at Smashing Pumpkins light on "Last Day On Earth". It all makes for a very mixed but highly likeable bag, with the notable exception of "Hallucinating Elvis", complete with appalling fake American accents, but this is the exception to the rule. Pop Trash is a return to form with some unexpected extras. --Helen Marquis

So, Duran made it into the year 2000 with a new album. This is the first album from DD that did not feature John Taylor - he quit after making the previous album, Medazzaland. I for one thought that essentially being only Simon & Nick from the original 5, the Duran sound as we know it would be no more. Well, it's still here and the Duran legend is alive and well. Simon's vocals are in fine form on this album and the songwriting is awesome! Check out "someone else not me", "playing with uranium", "mars meets venus" and "last day on earth" as highlights, but PLAY THEM LOUD! This album kicks - big time! (which is why the Pop Trash tour was so great!) I am not going to give a detailed review of each song here but what I am going to say is this. This album is a Duran Duran masterpiece - buy it now! I guarantee that you will not regret it!

This is a very laid back album and seems a lot less forced/contrived than some of their previous offerings post 1985. Duran Duran seem to expect the world to hate them and have been just a bit too keen on proving that they are not just a teen pop band whose time came and went. I've always thought they should be more relaxed about how people see them because they are clearly a talented and enduring act with plenty to offer. I loved this album from start to finish. I agree that Hallucinating Elvis is a bit silly, but its still pleasant enough. Someone else not me ought to have been a top 5 hit, but didn't chart - there is no justice. Whether any other releases would do any better is doubtful, but in a fair world, this album would be outselling the real pop trash out there in landslide proportions. This album is accessable, not too introspective, clever, funny and extremely likeable. The problem is that Duran Duran have been labelled as an 80s act and they will have to be granted a quirky slice of luck if they're to get the sales that an album of this quality deserves. But put it all in perspective. Spandau who?

Hi there ! I'm listening now the best album of Y2K, Duran's Pop Trash. It's a perfect album. It's got everything for everybody. You have great modern ballads like Someone else not me, The sun doesn't shine forever, retro flavoured ballads like Starting to Remember, Lady Xanax and in between -Pop trash movie. You have also great up-tempo dance -rock tracks like the stratospheric Hallucinating Elvis, Playing with uranium and Mars meets Venus, hard-rock tracks like Last day on Earth, and retro flavoured tracks like Lava lamp. You don't need other record to listen to. This one's got all that you need for every mood....

Like all the later albums of DD I also love this one.
My review will be short because the last track "last day on earth " sums up everything what I want to say about DD chalenging your ears. There's some strange hooks and turns which just won't let go, the rythm the voices...everything.
So give it a try, listen to that track...if you like it you'll find yourself enjoying the complete album.

Totally free from the shackles of their early 80s' teen-band image, Pop Trash is a wonderfully rounded album from a gratifyingly mature Duran Duran. Beautifully layered and crammed with moments of greatness, particularly in their Ordinary World-esque ballads, tracks such as Someone Else Not Me, the Sun Doesn't Always Shine and the title-track Pop Trash Movie should prove themselves to be the new Duran Duran classics. This is an album that flows confidently and is certainly their most assured offering since The Wedding Album without any of the awkwardness of Big Thing or Liberty. If for you Duran Duran still conjures up images of hairspray and lip-gloss, it's time to return, be more than pleasantly surprised and relax to spine-chilling melodies.

ok maybe my heading is a little harsh but if you're expecting an old style Duran Duran sound this is not it they seem to have opted for a 60's hippy vibe the guitars and overall sound is loud and Simon Lebon's voice sadly gets lost in the backing track..Part of the Duran sound is Simon's superd vocals which usually are crisp and beautiful here it is hard to here what he is singing.

Stand out tracks for me are
Someone Else Not Me,
Starting To Remember
Pop Trash Movie
The Sun Doesn't Shine Forever

the rest is in my opinion is shockingly bad.and not the usual quality of record i've come to know and love from Duran Duran. This is just a cd for hard core fans only.

Duran are back in style with an album that is all that is good about Duran. This is an album from a group at the top of their songwriting, crafting great melodies and catchy grooves into each song. You get the impression that Warren, Nick and Simon have agonised long and hard to create this masterpiece. It has certainly be worth the wait since Medazzaland. It is hard to pick any stand out tracks, but other than the single Someone else not me I would plump for the psychedelic Lava Lamp with its catchy guitar riff, Pop Trash Movie - the Duranned Blondie reject and the loud and proud apocolyptic Last Day on Earth. This is an astonishingly brilliant album that shows the 80's best can put the milleniums top acts in the shade ...
