Needless to say, I can't wait to get my hands on a physical copy of Duran Duran's Paper Gods on Friday! Although the first five released tracks have been on constant replay around here for some time, now that I've heard the album in its entirety, I can say that I'm officially blown away. Since I found out that the album was streaming on Soundcloud yesterday, it has been my soundtrack whilst photo editing, so I've listened to it at least half a dozen times. It's an eclectic mix of sheer brilliance that was definitely worth the wait.

More than ever, I am dying to see Duranlive again, but sadly I will need to start getting more photo contracts and also find a source of steady income (something I have been working on vigorously for the last year with no luck) before I can afford to attend any shows. In the meantime, I will continue to jam to this genius album and live vicariously through my friends who are lucky enough to attend shows. xoxo
