Duran’s Mark Ronson-produced 13th disc is a return to roots for a band that’s all implants ”“ which is part of the album’s charm. ”˜Being Followed’ and the tawdry ”˜Runway Runaway’ are every bit the chic Riviera rock of Duran’s 1980s classics, and the years have added posh-boy crankiness to Simon Le Bon’s lyrics: “I should’ve known when I bought into the dream,” he moans like the Miss Havisham of New Romantic overkill. It’s the kind of empty thought that makes this record a hoot.
