EDITORS’ NOTES

Spanning the first two decades of Duran Duran’s storied career, Greatest is, of course, anchored by the Brit band’s defining ’80s singles (“Girls on Film,” “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “Rio”), which still rocket into the stratosphere. But it also underscores their ’90s resurgence with the swooning ballad “Ordinary World” and trip-hop-ish “Come Undone,” reminding us that Simon Le Bon’s voice can provoke pathos as easily as partying. Take time to absorb less celebrated but equally fascinating cuts, like the kaleidoscopic “Union of the Snake.”

Perfect for the time -- 1998

Of course Duran Duran has released plenty of music since this collection was released. All the hits are there but all the singles are not. A great introduction to the group's past and a great way to celebrate classic Duran Duran. 1981-1997.

Excellent

Duran Duran is one of the few bands who doesn't really have "bad"songs, just ones that aren't as good as their others.
