Album Review: Duran Duran - All You Need Is Now (Tape Modern)
Successfully hailing their new romantic glory days of 1983
Producer Mark Ronson does an astounding job of taking them back to the ‘Fab Five’ glory days of ‘Rio’: ‘Being Followed’ and ‘Leave A Light On’ are the sonic equivalent of a shoeless walk in a pastel linen suit and Princess Di haircut along a tropical beach. Elsewhere, the four-fifths-complete line-up revisits the new romantic Blitz Club funk of their debut album on ‘Safe (In The Heat Of The Moment)’ and ‘Girl Panic!’.
