Pitchfork said: “With Rio, Duran Duran became a group of ultra-proficient musicians,
capable of churning out chart-topping pop songs with effortless aplomb, as well as a teen-baiting boy band, setting schoolgirls’ hearts aflame with their sharp clothes and packaged personas. It was simultaneously style-over-substance and substance-over-style; even the album’s neon and pastel cover art became something of a shorthand for the gilded excess
of the ’80s.

Turn Up The Volume: The glam and glitter boys band knew exactly how to
attract armies of fans worldwide. Looking flashy, sounding sickly sticking, and
acting like the coolest band on the planet is what DD all did back in the day.
