Ministry of Sound: Anthems - Electronic 80s is a 60-track 3 CD compilation album featuring Duran Duran, released by Ministry of Sound on 9 November 2009.

About the album[]

The album charts the birth of synthesized pop music in the 1980s and ultimately the roots of contemporary electronic dance music. During this period the synthesized music producers such as Kraftwerk, The Human League, Heaven 17, The B.E.F., OMD, Talk Talk, Japan, Sparks, Gary Numan, and New Order pushed the boundaries in experimenting with (mainly) the Roland synthesizer and ultimately showed the way for the house and techno producers of the 90s to the present day.

The compilation includes two Duran Duran tracks, which are the band's debut single "Planet Earth" and their second UK no.1 hit single "The Reflex". Also featured is the Nick Rhodes and Colin Thurston produced "Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo, plus "Kiss Me" by former Duran Duran band member Stephen Duffy.
