I must admit, I wasn’t sure whether Mark Ronson and Duran Duran would turn out to be a good match. However, Ronson has proven himself to be quite the versatile producer, and if the minute or so he recently played of “Being Followed”, then the band’s new album is gonna be pretty damn good.

The band’s been searching for that kind of mojo ever since they reunited a few years back, and although their recent material has been okay, this is easily the best they’ve sounded lately.
