Reunited again more than 20 years after 'Planet Earth' was released, Nick Rhodes and Stephen 'Tin Tin' Duffy join the latest in the queue named 'veteran pop duo return to electronic roots'. With Shelleydevoto and Ellis Island Sound they are in good company and this is another more than respectable extra-curricular project. It's fair to say that these famous names should attract a larger than cult-only following but they pleasingly take a non-commercial route. 'Hawks Don't Share' possesses more in common with such leftfield obscurities as This Heat rather than any New Romantic recordings, yet nothing quite eclipses the moodiness and poise of 'Aztec Moon'. From the electro-stomp of 'Memory Palaces' to the nostalgic sentiments of 'Barbarellas' the twosome produce polished performances even if there's nothing particularly new about this venture. And it's much better than any recent Duran Duran album, to boot.
