On my turntable: Duran Duran - Astronaut

Another 2004 LP that I'm filing away. Astronaut was a great return to form for Duran Duran. Notice I didn't say "comeback", since the band never really went away. They just sort of became a different band as a result of personnel changes. The reunion of DD's five original members included a very successful world tour, followed by the departure (again) of guitarist Andy Taylor. The band (as a quartet) released Red Carpet Massacre (on CD only) in 2007, and they continue to successfully tour the world.

reach up for the sunrise is one of my very favorite duran duran songs, especially that descending bass line at the end. i just sit and wait for it.

fairly new to this album (CD), I like Bedroom Toys, What Happens Tomorrow, Taste The Summer, and I love Chains and Still Breathing. Good disc.
