CRITIC REVIEWS

Albumism

Taken in total, FUTURE PAST comfortably sits next to any of its fourteen predecessors regarding its superlative sense of pop experimentation. And just like any of those previous affairs, FUTURE PAST is the right Duran Duran record for this moment.

AllMusic

Duran Duran are taking some calculated risks here which sometimes means they stumble -- occasionally, the ballads feel a shade strident -- but the restlessness makes for a kinetic, exciting album.

Clash

Frothy, neon-soaked entertainment, ‘Future Past’ – when it works – is a blast of ridiculous 80s themed fun.

Honestly I had no idea that Duran Duran was still active as a band. This album's alright. If you told me that Duran Duran released an album in 2021, this is about the bar of quality I would set for my listening experience, so. Y'know.

No se trata de un buen disco aunque hay que decir que a pesar de tantos años desde la new wave, y considerando que tampoco fue nunca un gran grupo, mantiene un sonido actualizado, no se ha quedado viviendo de las rentas del siglo pasado como muchos otros que han conseguido superar cuarenta años de antigüedad.
Mejores temas: ALL OF YOU, GIVE IT ALL UP y WING.

I've been listening to the song "INVISIBLE" for a few days now and it's one of the best songs of 2021.
