About this album

Red Carpet Massacre is the twelfth studio album by English pop rock band Duran Duran. It was released on 19 November 2007 in Europe, and on 13 November in the United States.

Most of the music on the current incarnation of the album was completed in late 2006 after the departure of band member Andy Taylor, when music producer Timbaland began working with the band.

For the week of 19 November, Red Carpet Massacre debuted at #36 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 29,000 copies in its first week.[1] However, the following week the album fell to #116. For the week of 26 November, the album debuted at #44 in the UK, becoming the 2nd poorest UK Chart entry in the band’s career, after Pop Trash from 2000. The album entered the Italian chart at #10. As of 2 May 2008, the album has moved 88,000 copies in the U.S.[2] The album spent only three consecutive weeks in the Billboard 200 chart. Also in the U.S., it was completely ignored by critics.

It was the band’s only other album released with Epic Records. The band parted ways with Sony Music in 2009.

The band did its initial recording for its follow-up to Astronaut with producer Michael Patterson between September 2005 and April 2006. Roger Taylor said in March 2006, “The record will be in some ways a homage to our roots as a band, more direct and a return to our dance and ‘new wave’ origins”, and that they had brought fifteen tracks to near completion.[3]

    Red Carpet Massacre is starting to grow on me. I only downloaded it for the track Nite Runner, but I seem to like Falling Down, Box Full O' Honey, Skin Divers and Tempted too at 2nd listen. They all grew on me. So many catchy songs on one album. That's Timbaland's magic. Some tracks on Red Carpet Massacre are such fillers, too. It's like a pain in the arse to listen to them. Last 4 tracks :/

    after all those years Red Carpet Massacre is definitely the most misunderstood album of DD and also one of their definitely best ones. It was so brave and experimental and also it was build on the bases and motives that are so typical for Durans and new romantics. And despite that fact it is so hated... I do not understand.

    I kind of hate to say this but, really, Nite-Runner is the only song on here that I like. And I like Duran Duran but just... not this album, really, a whole lot. It almost sounds like they are stuck in the 80's, except for Nite-Runner, that is.

    I might be the only one but I like this album a lot more than most if not all of their prior records. So many good tracks.

    Love this album, did not like Astronaut, and since I heard they're going back to the Astronaut sound, I'm glad I still can say that "I enjoy the latest Duran album". I'm enjoying it as long as it lasts.

    I find this album strangely addictive though it has nothing to do with anything they have done before really in some ways, and maybe that's why Duran Duran have always been exciting and relevant.

    Most of the songs on this album are good Duran songs, however Falling Down, Skin Divers and (sometimes) Nite Runner are simply tacky and bland. RCM, The Valley, even Tempted are all top notch Duran (even if they don't bring back memories of the "good old" 81-85 years).

    i really don't understand why this was duran duran's worst charting album ever. i have played this album about 20114455445 times and still haven't got sick of it. red carpet massacre has always been an addictive listen, from start to finish, even with Timbaland's tacky backing vocals.......

    I'm still surprised at how much I love this album. I was annoyed with the whole Timbaland collaboration at first. Naturally, I bought the album anyway and immediately warmed to it. It works- it's cohesive and concise. I don't particularly care for Nite Runner but I can still listen to the whole album front and back.

    I find it bewildering that more people didn't love this album. Maybe I can understand why more didn't ~buy~ it (lack of sufficient publicity) but rather than coming out as a purely calculated attempt to stay "trendy", I think it was really an excellent pairing of the aesthetics of band and producer.

    This album and madonnas's last album don't meet my taste. They are Timbarlake/Timbaland/Pherrell album featuring Madonna and Duran Duran.

    Every song works better on their live performances, I hope they will release some day a CD or DVD with those live versions, where 'nite runner' or 'skin divers' won their maximum grade (just search their Lyceum show from 2007 on YouTube). It's a good album, but could have been excellent.

    I've absolutely played this album to the ground and I'm not tired of it yet.
