video: Duran Duran - All You Need Is Now

By now, some of you may have heard the new Duran Duran album. You can nearly pick out each song they used as a reference to update, yet return to their original sound. I still have to sit with this for a while but as I posted months ago, their David Bowie cover, "Boys Keep Swinging", is fantastic.

Mark Ronson produced this album and told the band he wanted them to return to the way they originally made music. "No Computers". However, I am not sure this rule applied with the corrected Simon LeBon vocals on the single All You Need Is Now.

Overall, I do like this. If you are a fan of later Sneaker Pimps / IAMX, you can hear the similar feel in certain songs where Chris Corner was grabbing his spirit, especially if you ever saw videos of him and Simon performing together. I hope Duranies everywhere will enjoy this album and that this will open the doors for Duran Duran to continue this sound which is truer to their known vibe. There are some great guests on the album but you should just listen to it... enjoy!
