Album of the Day
DECADE brought the 1980s to a close for Duran Duran, and the greatest hits collection shows exactly what turned the U.K. group into MTV icons over the preceding years. Drawing from all six of their studio albums along with one or two noteworthy odds and ends, the EMI album includes 14 tracks – half of them Top 10 hits. “Hungry Like The Wolf,” “Is There Something I Should Know,” “The Reflex” and “Notorious” are but a few songs here that will be instantly familiar to anyone who listened to the radio in the '80s; presented chronologically, the set generally sticks to the most popular edit of each recording. Certified Platinum on both sides of the Atlantic, DECADE is a must for new wave fans, and we'll give it another spin now to wish Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes a happy 60th birthday.
