Review: Duran Duran – Ordinary World (Rock)

This review covers the pop rock track Duran Duran – Ordinary World.

This track was released in 1993 on a self-titled album.

The track starts with a drum kit and some guitars. Shortly after, the vocals come in. The guitars largely slow down at this point. Some synth strings also make an appearance.

In the next section, the vocals take the track into the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental section.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. The synth strings make a return. After that, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. An effect makes a brief appearance as well. A guitar solo then comes in after with only the occasional appearance of vocals – a lot of that being non-lyrical.

The vocals then takes the track into the next verse with an acoustic guitar sound. The track gradually builds up towards the end. After that, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. This section is capped off with some vocals extending the main chorus. After that, the track gradually fades out.

For me, the biggest strength this track has is the lyrics. The vocals are alright, but the lyrics definitely have a nice power to them. They have a lot of hope in them.

The guitar solo’s give this track a lot of strength as well. I did like that part a lot.

Overall, this track has a few things going for it. It’s got strong lyrics and a good guitar solo. The vocals are decent and the overall track does sound pretty good. An pretty good track overall.
