In a two-star review of Duran Duran’s self-titled 1993 album, Rolling Stone said the band “was known for its chic wardrobe and hairstyles as much as for its synthesized dance hits,” but 23 years after Duran Duran’s first comeback album (and 12 years after their second one), the style showcased in classic videos like “Girls on Film,” “Rio,” “Is There Something I Should Know?” et al, has gone from cutting-edge to kinda silly-looking to fashionable again, but the songs have always remained. It’s been a couple of presidential administrations since MTV regularly aired music videos, but approximately half of indie-rock’s great white hopes are still cribbing synth lines from Nick Rhodes. Last year’s Paper Gods, on the other hand, found the former Fab Five pushing their own style forward with help from Janelle Monáe, Nile Rogers and even Lindsay Lohan. Director Russell Mulcahy might be arguably more famous for making Highlander at this point, but he got his first experience filming immortals shooting the videos for “Planet Earth” and “Hungry Like the Wolf.”
