By the mid-'90s, Simon Le Bon, John Taylor and the other Duran Durans were long past "Rio" and even "Come Undone," and grasping for anything that would put them back on course. Yet subsequent albums such as the covers collection Thank You and Medazzaland suggested the band's glory days were clearly in the rearview mirror. "We had a lot of luggage in our suitcases," Taylor said in 2006. "It had gotten pretty stinky. It was like a dysfunctional family in a way [with] all this locked-up resentment. We felt we had to work. But it started to [seem] like Spinal Tap after a while." Fortunately, the tale has a happy ending. Duran Duran found its footing with the dawn of a new millennium and a pair of critically lauded albums, 2004's Astronaut and 2007's Red Carpet Massacre. And a new album, aptly dubbed All You Need Is Now, reaffirms the group's slick, sophisticated, hook-heavy sound. Having proved sufficiently savvy in transitioning through rock, funk and dance without loss of either cool or credibility, these New Wave legends are no longer attempting to reinvent themselves. It's finally enough just to be Duran Duran.

Awesome album! The most complete, filler- free album in years. All songs scream, "HIT". Everyone needs to pick this album, "All You Need Is Now" up. Stand out tracks include: "The Man Who Stole A Leopard", "Girl Panic", "Mediterranea", "Too Bad You're So Beautiful" and "Networker Nation"! ....This album ROCKS!!!
