Background: Rio, released in 1982, was the second album by Duran Duran, reaching #2 in the UK and #6 on the U.S. charts, helped by the singles “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “Save a Prayer,” and “Rio.”
From its Nagel cover to the haircuts and overall design — and first and foremost the music — Rio is as representative of the ’80s at its best as it gets. The original Duran Duran’s high point, and just as likely the band’s as a whole, its fusion of style and substance ensures that even two decades after its release it remains as listenable and danceable as ever…. From start to finish, a great album that has outlasted its era.
