So Red The Rose



        While Andy Taylor and John Taylor teamed up with Robert Palmer to create the Power Station, the remaining members of Duran Duran put together a side project of their own called Arcadia. Enlisting help from musicians like Sting, Herbie Hancock, and David Gilmour, the album ends up being a masterfully produced record.

        Certainly more avant-garde than Duran Duran proper, their signature is still there, and perhaps this album was a foreshadow of the crazy stuff theyd do later on, when Andy left the band.
