Still one of the best innovative and influencial bands
Duran Duran - love or loathe them, they deliver exciting NEW material every time and Red Carpet Massacre is no exception and forges a new fork in the river on continent Duran. Yes, the Duran sound has evolved again - SO WHAT! That's what every band should be trying to do with their 'NEW' material and what Duran have always done, they always bring a new guest to the table - how refreshing! The only slight gripe here is that the opening 6 tunes are that groovy and catchy that the 'B-side' (remember that Vinyl lovers) does not always live up to those initial tracks, particularly THE VALLEY, a dynamic-groovy-dare I say it-ANTHEM, which in my opinion should open every Duran concert from here on in. These guys can truly be considered as pioneers and I believe that the fact that they constantly get slated by the press (UK especially) only goes to confirm what I already know, they're always gonna deliver innovative NEW music, some people don't like it - TOUGH!! Many, many do!!Read full review
THEIR BEST RECORD YET !!!
I HAVE BEEN A DURAN FAN SINCE I CAN'T REMEMBER. I LOVE THEIR EARLY STUFF THE MOST, ASTRONAUT WAS GREAT TOO. BUT- THIS ALBUM IS JUST THE BEST ALBUM BY THIS BAND. IT TOTALLY SURPRISED ME WITH THE LACK OF GUITARS ON THE RECORD, BUT THE SONGS AND MELODIES ARE JUST CLASSIC DURAN DURAN. WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT THE ALBUM IS JOHN TAYLOR'S BASSLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE ALBUM, HE HAS ALWAYS PLAYE AND WRIITEN FANTASIC BASSLINES BUT ON THIS CD HE EXCEEDS ANYTHING HE HAS EVER DONE BEFORE. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS RECORD. I HAVEN'T REALLY GOT A FAVOURITE BECAUSE ALL THE TRACKS ARE SO CATCHY. THERE ARE GLIMPSES OF HOUSE, DANCE, R N B, BALLADS, POP AND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU COULD HOPE FOR. I JUST FEEL A LITTLE SORRY FOR ROGER TAYLOR: AS A DRUMMER MYSELF, I WOULDN'T BE TOO EXCITED ABOUT PLAYING MOST OF THE TRACKS LIVE. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ALBUM !!!

Duran Duran - Red Carpet Massacre (CD 2007)
Another Brillant album by Duran Duran. having been a fan since the 80's its great to see their music change with the times. Astronaut (previous album)was'nt that good ,but this album sees them back to full form. having the Justin Timberlake influence adds a great depth.Love all 12 tracks.
Duran Red carpet massacre.
Been a Duran fan since their top times in the eighties and have always found a positive in their music but this one for the first time has left me wanting so much more from them. In my view their poorest album to date bar none.
