Today I got my hands on Duran Duran
's new album, Red Carpet Massacre
... and I have to admit, despite mixed reviews, I was quite pleasantly surprised. I won't lie - I've long loved everything Duran Duran and I haven't been this excited about a new album drop since Placebo
No, Red Carpet Massacre
is not a perfect album. There are some songs that I simply must
skip (I don't think I even listened to Skin Drivers
all the way through), but overall it is addicting - in a good way.
I absolutely loooooooooove the first single, Falling Down
. I keep going back to the track over and over and over again. With my recent feelings of going mad (blame sobriety), it seems to feel just right. Also, the music video is fucking awesome. (Course, maybe that's just 'cause I dig all the chicks. Hahaha.)
My next favorite is She's Too Much
. It's such a sweet, beautiful song. I'd say the song could best be compared to She Will Be Loved
(that actually inspires me to make a new mix}, but I quite prefer this song. Apparently, Simon wrote this about his daughter, which just makes it even sweeter.
Other great songs are Box full o' Honey
and Dirty Great Monster
I have a feeling this album will be on repeat for quite a while.
