The artistic progression from the band's self-titled debut to the following year's RIO was the greatest aesthetic leap of Duran Duran's career. The group moved from catchy but somewhat rudimentary New Romantic synth-funk to elegantly arranged, sophisticated pop-rock, concentrating more on song structure than dance beats. For their efforts, they were rewarded with superstar status, due chiefly to "Hungry Like the Wolf", a lascivious tune that injects a welcome dose of rock & roll guitar. The most impressive tracks on RIO, though, are the more contemplative, balladic offerings, like "Lonely in Your Nightmare", "Save a Prayer", and especially "The Chauffer", with its stream-of-consciousness lyrics and unconventional structure, arty without seeming pretentious. If you only have one Duran Duran album, it should be RIO.

Good find - still have this on vinyl but will buy the cd at this price. Heat added!

Some classic eighties sounds here. As well as the bigger hits there is "Chauffeur" which has one of the most erotic videos of all time. Alas I have never seen this kind of thing going on in a multi-storey carpark but I always live in hope that one day I will.

Oh, but I'm not 18 till tomorrow, so can't watch it!

Reminds me of the day I was in a pool hall and Visions In Blue by Ultravox appeared on the Video Duke Box. I nearly ripped the green baise!

I know what you mean: It was enough to make a teenage boy stay at home all day watching MTV with the curtains drawn!
