Its incredible that thirty years after the New Wave explosion, Duran Duran has released what is probably the best album of their career, next to Rio of course. They are one of my favorite bands, but even I have to admit that as much as half their discography is unlistenable due to the changes that major labels forced upon the band's sound.
If you ever doubted the validity, creativity, and strength of Duran Duran, then A Diamond In The Mind will prove you wrong. The energy and flawless delivery of their early performances are all here, packed with a diverse selection of tunes, a lot of which come from the new record.
Do you realize that as I write this review, Duran Duran are STILL on the same tour for this release?!? They have been touring for almost two years and still have some shows lined up for the end of the year. This is an incredible feat for a young band, but for a group of posh guys in their 50's, that is just unheard of. Very proud to be a life-long Duran Duran fan, especially now that the band is back and better than ever.
I only wish they would have put Tiger Tiger on here as that was the most atmospheric track they played live on this tour and I love the lighting they used for it.
Tastefully done and entertaining. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the band this August!
Now, as for the 3 star review: The Blue Ray isn't recognized by my PC. So, I can't watch it on computer. Worse, the only way to get an online cloud-based copy is to subscribe for a monthly service. Lame.
Though this is my favorite group of all time, this rating is not based on that. They have had some hits and misses over the years but, on a world-wide stage, Duran Duran have made a real comeback, musically. Unlike the "Live from London" concert, which was AWESOME in part because it was the original 5 and the excitement of seeing them all together again (for the fans as well as the band itself, apparently), this one was a little more "trendy", I guess. The camera work was sometimes a bit too flashy for my tastes, but they sounded GREAT!!
Good buy for the price.
