4.0 out of 5 stars At Least I'm an Actual Fan. March 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I've looked at a lot of reviews for this group and have said nothing up until now. When I began doing my reviews, I had in mind only to do any on whatever or whoever I've had a legitimate history of actually liking! I would like to say that a lot of people are quite unfair to D2, but they always have been since Rio took off in this country. As a fan trying to help out other fans, I would like to offer my view on Notorious since I've had it on vinyl since '86.
After Seven and the Ragged Tiger proved to be such an awful disappointment, I wasn't sure I would ever buy another of their albums again. Then I broke down after hearing "Notorious" enough times and bought it. To my surprise, I found their new direction to be very tight and cohesive. True, this is no Rio, but it's right behind it on my list as well as the group's debut. "Notorious" itself is a solid, funky tune full of great guitar work, John Taylor's always excellent bass lines, and very good hooks embellished by Simon Le Bon's punchy phrasing. Other notable tracks: Very sexy and effective "American Science." A personal favorite has always been "Skin Trade," which captured my attention from the first time I heard it. "A Matter of Feeling" is absolutely lovely and moving, and Nick Rhodes' keyboards are my favorite thing about it as they compliment Simon's delivery. "So Misled" is excellent and kicks a sophisticatedly sly form of ass. The "na-na-na's" are my favorite part. "Meet El Presidente" as also of note, and will remind you of the old song "Louie Louie" just a bit.
Now I know certain people reviewed this album that couldn't possibly have listened to it, so my advice to D2 fans is to consider anyone who gave Notorious at least 3 stars, then make up your own mind about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Notorious comeback June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent CD where the group's style starts to take a turn for the better. The songs are beautiful (they have a new sound, with lots of horns in the background) with good lyrics. They deal a lot with exploitation, with Notorious apparently being about the media's handling of celebrities from what I've read the band members say, and Skin Trade is clearly about noting exploitation in money's name. Then there is Vertigo which seems to be about delusion, Proposition which reminds me of Say the Word (Arcadia/Duran Duran). Winter Marches On is also a very good song, sounding quite poetic even though kind of repetitive. Maybe that's the point. Meet El Presidente is interesting. Not a CD to buy for the cover though. No lyrics here, and no pictures either, I don't think. So in less you want to see who Duran Duran are indebted to for this album, don't get hyped up about the cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME AWESOME STUFF-don't listen to the haters!! March 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have no idea why these people below me have wasted their breath to hate on Duran Duran. There are ways to be tactful and discuss an album, even if you DON'T like it. Saying that it sucks, but with nothing to back it up isn't helping anyone!!! :(
Back to DD. This album is amazing. Truly. The fans know it-Who can deny 'Notorious' for example? Great keyboarding, and a great hook, this song is one of the best Duran Duran songs ever in my opinion.
OTHER GREAT TRACKS (all of the songs are stellar, but I don't want to go on and on!!!)
-AMERICAN SCIENCE-this song is great. The song starts out with some horns blaring, and a slow creeping shuffling sound. My favorite part of the song is more towards the center where a great guitar riff takes place. This song is one of the best on the album.
-SKIN TRADE-a DD classic in my opinion. Skin Trade is very different than other DD material IMO. Skin Trade is laid back sounding-lots of brass and horns.
-A MATTER OF FEELING-slower, sensitive sounding, very nice, I don't listen to this one as much as other more uptempos, so I don't have alot to say, but it is good!
-HOLD ME-good midtempo song. I usually skip this one to get to..
-VERTIGO (DO THE DEMOLITION)-Sexy, midtempo song, one of my favorite DD songs of all time!
-MEET EL PRESIDENTE-one of the best DD songs out there! Lots of bongo drums, and horn sections. I love the 12" version of MEP better than the album version, but both are very good. MEP has alot of percussion by way of bongo and hand drums, and lots of trumpets and also some female backup singers! GREATTTTT!
Honestly,this record is amazing. I would not give it away for any price, that is for sure. DD has been making great music for a very long time, and with this album, they went in a decidedly funkier direction with awesome results!!!-james

5.0 out of 5 stars Agree with previous but more so March 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a D/D fan from way back I'm also astouned at the criticism of the record. This is simply a great record, one of my all time favorites, almost every song is a repeat listen. Don't listen to the naysayers as this is a great record.

I don´¿t usually write reviews online, but I am so perplexed by some of the reviews for Duran Duran´¿s Notorious that I feel that, as a long time fan, I need to put in my two cents. I really wonder exactly what some of these one star reviews are about. The fact that Duran Duran lost popularity in the mid-80´¿s? The idea that Uriah Heep might be a better band? The fact that somebody´¿s kid started liking classic rock around the time this album came out? Apparently, Duran Duran suffers from the same problem it always did: people who never liked them still have too much time on their hands, and so they spend it criticizing music they didn´¿t listen to in the first place. This is as ridiculous as me criticizing, say, Bon Jovi. I loathe every song of theirs that I have ever heard, so why would I waste my time talking about their music, their career, their musical ability, or telling everybody about how their records started to fail on the charts in the early 90´¿s? I´¿ll leave that to Bon Jovi´¿s fans and turn the channel every time Livin´¿ On a Prayer comes on, just others should leave Duran Duran to its fans and do the same when they hear Save a Prayer. It´¿s only fair.
That said, Notorious is NOT Duran´¿s best album, but I loved it when it came out and there are enough good moments (Skin Trade, Winter Marches On, Notorious, American Science, Vertigo) to make it well worth repeated listening for any fan, new or old. Just keep in mind that it was an album made during a time of transition, and it probably pleases fans that were in for the long haul the most. Even Nick Rhodes said at the time that fans expecting another Rio would be disappointed. They never wanted to make a sequel to that album.
