DURAN DURAN IS IS BACK BACK: Those big-haired pretty boys from the U.K  are back -- Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Roger Taylor; everyone but Andy Taylor -- and they've brought the retro sound you know and love with them. 

 All You Need Is Now,  initially released as a download this past December, gets a physical release today (3/22/11) ... and many a critic, including  this music reviewer, likes what he's hearing.  Watch the vid below and see if you agree:


Hungry Like a Wolf (#3/1982): The song that made them an international sensation, thanks mainly to heavy MTV airplay ... you know, back when MTV actually played videos and wasn't so fascinated with documenting the lives of pregnant teens and other assorted spoiled brats ...

Ordinary World (#3/1993): The bands first U.S Top 10 hit since 1988

The Wild Boys (#2/1984): The only studio track on the live album Arena. Based on the 1971 novel The Wild Boys: A Book Of The Dead

Notorious (#2/1986): Their first release as a 3-pieces band after the departure of Roger Taylor and Andy Taylor

The Reflex (#1/1984): Their first and only single to hit number one on the U.S. charts ...
