1. Duran Duran | All You Need Is Now (Tapemodern)

With but one exception (2000’s Pop Trash), I’ve always loved Duran Duran’s music. This, though, hits it out of the park. As I said in my review, All You Need Is Now is Duran Duran’s best album since their 1982 breakthrough Rio. The original band members reunited in 2004 and remain together today, with the exception of guitarist Andy Taylor, who left after a falling out. Musically, lyrically, and vocally, All You Need showcases a band in full control of its talent, as fresh and relevant as it ever was.
